Author of the Meditations, Theron and Aspasio, &c.
Who was Editor of an early Edition of his Works. Sir, RECEIVED your very valuable and no loss acceptable present, some weeks ago. I should have acknowledged the favour sooner ; but I chose to stay till I had tasted the dish you set before me. And indeed I find it to be savoury meat, the true manna; food for the soul.
Your worthy relative was a workman that need not be ashamed. He knew how, clearly to state, and solidly to es. tablish the faith of God's elect, and the doctrine according to godliness. -_ 0! that my heart, and the heart of every reader, may be opened, by the eternal Spirit, to receive the precious truths !
The letter at the end of the first volume, is a judicious performance. It rightly divides the word of truth, and lays the line, with a masterly hand, between the presumptuous Legalist, and the licentious Antinomian. -- I am particularly pleased with the honourable testimony bore to those two excellent books, Dr Owen's Treatise on Justification, and Mr Marshall's Gospel-mystery of Sanctification : books fit to be recommended by so good a judge !
If the Lord pleases to give Theron and Aspasio any acceptance in Scotland, I shall be sincerely glad; but if he vouchsafes to make them, not only welcome, but useful visitants, I shall exceedingly rejoice. ---- In case you should think them calculated to promote the honour and further the gospel of JESUS CHRIST, I hope you will favour them with your recommendation, and accompany them with your prayers which will be a fresh instance of kindness to,
Your obliged friend,
WESTON, 3 July 8. 1755. §
