THOUGH the names in this Letter are fictitious, (as they always were, and the same that appear now :) it is part of a real correspondence. Papinian, who was a man of mature age, of great eminence, and a diligent reader of the sacred fcriptures, has long since accomplished his course in this world. Philalethes is still living. The letter, fent to Papinian, was never returned. But Philalethes kept a copy of it. Though written almost thirty years ago,

it has hitherto lain concealed in the writer's cabinet. Nor has it, 'till very lately, been shewn to more than two persons, one of whom is deceased. Whether this will be reckoned full proof, that the writer is not forward to engage in religious disputes, I cannot say. This however is certain : He would have great reason to think himself happy, if, with the assistance of others, without noise and disturbance, in the way of free, calm, and peaceable debate, he could clear up a controverted point of religion, to general satisfaction.
