T. CADELL, in LONDON; J. and J. Fletcher, and
HE following Sermons were all of
them preached in the Parish Church of St. Chad, Shrewsbury, during the author's residence there : and are here collected into a volume with his permission. The Essay on Miracles was first a sermon preached at the visitation of Mr. Archdeacon Vyse, in the year 1751 : which the author being desired 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 request. The rest were printed at the request of the Corporation, or of the Societies before whom they were preached. The Pastoral 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 translated into Welsh by the care of Bishop Barrington, and published in French by the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge.
