forgetful of the great Obligations I lie under to
Sir Richard Grosvenor. -
Your Hospitality and Generosity make you stand
unenvied in the Abundance of Fortune. Any Up-
start may contrive to spend a Great Estate; but it
is a Felicity almost peculiar to Great Birth to become
One.
Were I now to describe Liberality, without Pro-
fuseness; Steadiness in Principles, without any pri-
vate View; Candour and Affability, Good Nature
joined to sound Judgment, and a Serenity of Tem-
per, which your Enemies will always find the Com-
panion of true Courage; and then pronouce that
you are possessed of all these good Qualities in as
high a Degree as most Men living; No Gentleman
that knows you well, would think I flattered you.

Sir, Give me Leave to say, I honour you Charaćter, and love your Person; My Expressions are uncourtly, my Stile unpolished, and therefore more -proper to be prefixed to a Work wherein the Matters related are indeed clad in a plain and homely Dress; but they are true, and designed to propagate Mathematical Learning among such as desire to be introduced into that Sort of Knowledge; and I am extreamly pleased they are permitted to be sent into the World under your Protećtion. . . .

That you may long live, to promote the Good of your Country, and that City in whose Interest you have so heartily engaged your Self; and that you imay ever succeed in your own private Affairs, and live to enjoy all the Blesfings that attend a quiet prudent Life, is the earnest Prayer of,
