BISHOP BURNET'S EXPOSITION
BY THOMAS NEWLAND, A. B.,
OF TRINITY COLLEGE, DUBLIN.
“Sunt Libri, quos leviter tantum degustare convenit : sunt quos deglu.
9, UPPER SACKVILLE-STREET ;
TALBOYS, OXFORD; AND DEIGHTONS, CAMBRIDGE.
In dedicating to you the following pages, designed, as they are, merely to present the labours of others under a more useful form, I feel that I have some apology to offer, for associating your name with an attempt so humble in itself, and so imperfect in its execution. Still, I cannot regret that association. For how can cultivation of mind and purity of life, be more appropriately engaged, than in lending their. sanction to any endeavour, however feeble, to advance the knowledge of those doctrines, which have been so ably illustrated by the one, and so happily exemplified in the other? Or by whom can that sanc
tion be more gratefully recorded, than by one, the term of whose acquaintance with you, has only served as a continued succession of repeated kindnesses ? And, believe me, that while I avail myself of your permission to inscribe your name at the head of this work, I deem myself fortunate in having, at the same time, an opportunity of expressing the sense I feel of the numerous favours you have conferred upon me, and of assuring you, I shall ever remain,
And humble Servant,
22, TRINITY COLLEGE,
Nov. Ist, 1828.
