you could certainly prevail, either to make men good,
or to restrain them from being so bad. Therefore confider your ways, for the sake of others as well as yourselves. Confider what you have done, and then consider what is fit for you to do, and if you do it not, what will be the end of these things. And to help you forward in this work, it is not necessary that I should rip up the vices of the age, and set mens fins in order before them : it is much better that you yourselves should call your own ways to remembrance. We have every one a faithful monitor and witness in our own breasts, who, if we will but hearken to him, will deal impartially with us, and privately tells us the errors of our lives. To this monitor I refer you, and to the grace of God, to make these admonitions effectual.
every one of our hearts this holy and happy resolution, for the sake of our blessed Saviour and Redeemer. To
whom, with the Father, and the Holy Ghost, be all.
honour and glory now and for ever, Amen.
