A Word in Seafon.

HE Author is not infenfible that the Publication of fuch a Treatife as this at a Time when the SWORD (the first of Evils here treated of) is now ready to be fheathed in these Parts of the World where it hath fo long and fo cruelly ravaged, will be judged by a great many very Unfeasonable. And fo indeed it would be, were but the Minds of People disposed to receive the Blef fings of Peace: or could they be brought to understand and confider their true Interest: which cannot be expected without ftrictly pursuing the Methods of Juftice, without either Favour for or Prejudice against Any Perfon or Party whatsoever, and by closely adhering to the immutable Standard of God's Everlafting Truth, without which no Establishment of Man can long ftand. No doubt had we lived in Nineveh in the Days of Jonah, or in Babylon in the Days of Daniel, there are great Numbers among us that would have thought the Preaching of the former and the Interpretation of the latter not more Seafonable than This now is. But Nineveh was reprieved from its impending Ruin by Attention to the One: and Babylon which repented not perished with its King: and fo muft Spiritual Babylon likewise with her King, and all that drink out of her Cup, except they repent.
