HE following Sermons were all of them preached in the Parish Church of St. Chad, Shrewsbury, during the author's refidence there: and are here collected into a volume with his permiffion. The Effay on Miracles was first a fermon preached at the vifitation of Mr. Archdeacon Vyfe, in the year 1751: which the author being defired to publish, enlarged into it's present form. That on the Nature and Obligation of Virtue was preached at the primary visitation of Dr. Cornwallis, now Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, and published at his Grace's requeft. The reft were printed at the request of the Corporation, or of the Societies before whom they were preached. The Paftoral Advice was drawn up in pursuance of the injunctions of Bishop North to his clergy, requiring them to be careful in preparing their young parishioners for confirmation. It has been tranflated into Welsh by the care of Bishop Barrington, and published in French by the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge.
