GEORGE ISAAC HUNTINGFORD, D. D.
Warden of St. Mary's COLLEGE, WINCHESTER,
Printed for T. CADELL jun. and W. DAVIES (Successor
to Mr. CADELL) in the Strand,
OF BERKELEY IN SOMERSETSHIRE.
ROM the commencement of our F
friendship has elapsed a period of thirty years; and during that time there has scarcely ever arisen between us any difference of opinion. Thus long habituated to coincide with you in sentiment on other points, my mind is now anxious that all its ideas should correspond with your conceptions on subjects of religion.
Under the impression of this solicitude, it presents to you a transcript of its researches, meditations, and reasonings on those most serious and interesting concerns, exhibited in the following Discourses. In them are briefly discussed some principal doctrines of Christianity; doctrines, which with the most scrupulous enquiry we have deliberately examined; which in our most mature judgement, formed on irresistible conviction, we acknowledge and embrace as founded on truth; which (in justice let it be added) you strive to observe; and which, amidst the independence of affluent circumstances, from a deep sense of their importance, you diligently and conscientiously preach.
