A

Short Account of the following Sermons, now published in the Order of Time in which they were preached, will not, I hope, be thought improper. The Two first of them were preached at St. Swithin's Church, in the Year 1702, where I then officiated for Mr. Hodges, the worthy Rector of that Parish, during his Abfence at Sea, as Chaplain-General of the Fleet. They were occafioned by the great Fury in Party-matters, which then raged: And were honestly designed to fhew, that the Violences of Chriftians ought not to be charged upon the Christian Religion itself.

The Third Sermon was preached at the Church of St. Peter's Poor, on the Acceffion-day of Queen ANNE to the Throne, Mar. 8, 1704-5, when I thought it my Duty to take that first Opportunity, after my coming thither, of declaring against the Abuses of that Day. The printing of it was entirely owing to the earnest Request of fome of the Chief Parishioners, who heard it. When it appeared, I was much abused in a Pamphlet, for what They thought fo well of, by a then neighbouring Clergyman, to whom I gave no Answer but by a private Letter to a Friend of His.
