Go where your impious, and

gant, or capricious, nothing that favours of en
thufiafm, or declamation.
I conclude thefe notes with
one word of Bp. Burnet's,
and one of Bp. Wilkin's.
The former fays, f * Artificial
eloquence without a flame
within, is like artificial poetry,
all its produftions are forced,
and unnatural, and in a great
meafure ridiculous. Art
helps, and guides nature :
but if one was not born with
this flame, art will only fpoil,
and make him redundant.
A man muft have in himfelf
a deep fenfe of the truth and
power of religion. He muft
have a life and flame in his
thoughts with relation to thefe
fubjefts. He muft have felt
in himfelf thofe things, which
he intends to explain, and
recommend to others. There
is an authority in the fimpleft
things that can be faid when
they carry vifible charadters
of genuinenefs In them." Fajli,
care, chap, ix.
Bp. Wilkin fays, " As the
milder affeftions tÂ« ijS*!, do
beft fuit with the introduc-
tion, which infinuatcs into the
love, and attention of the
hearers ; fo ra iccc^-n, the
more eager, and vehement
affeftions will beft become the
conclufions." " But (adds
he from Luther) bene orafl'e,
eft bene ftuduiflTe." And this
indeed is the foul of all.
Gi've attendance to reading,
exhortation, and doSirine. Neg-
