agreeable to you, and I well know the gentle and forgiving nature of your disposition. Above all, I should be highly flattered to learn, that the account I have given of the State of Religion in Scotland, had interested and pleased you. The truly liberal and

apostolic zeal with which your Lordship has so long been labouring to serve my countrymen in their most important concerns, is appreciated and honoured by none more highly than,

My Lord,
Your Lordship’s very humble,
and very affectionate servant,

PETER MORRIS.
