PREFIXED TO THE SECOND VOLUME,

IN THE FIRST EDITION.

The Author thinks it necessary to declare, that the patronage of the Syndics of the University Press was founded on their confidence in him, and not on a previous perusal of his manuscript. This declaration seems requisite, lest the Syndics should be considered as giving a sanction to some opinions advanced in the first thirteen Chapters of the third Book.

The title of this Book must be understood as opposed to that of the fourth Book ; Of particular religious Societies :" as the particular Societies with which we are chiefly concerned, are Christian Societies, our general observations may sometimes relate only to such ; and may set forth things which are common to them only. It is natural to use the enlarged expression, because Christian Societies have really many things in common with other religious Societies ; though in strictness, no observation should be made under our Title which is not applicable to every religious Society whatsoever.
