His Majesty having allowed and permitted the Use of a New Version of the Psalms of David, by Dr. BRADY and Mr. TATE, in all Churches, Chapels, and Congregations; I cannot do less than wish a good success to this Royal Indulgence; for I find it a Work done with so much Judgment and Ingenuity, that I am persuaded it may take off that unhappy Objection, which has hitherto lain against the Singing Psalms; and dispose that part of Divine Service to much more Devotion. And I do heartily recommend the Use of this Version to all my Brethren within my Diocese.
