Sir. Give me Leave to say, I honour you Character, 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 defile to be introduced into that sort of Knowledge; and I am extreamly pleased they are permitted to be sent into the World under your Protection.
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 may ever succeed in your own private Affairs, and live to enjoy all: the Blessings that attend a quiet prudent Life, is the earnest Prayer of,
...,..Your most Obliged, Humble,
i usailin and Obedient Servant,
