DIALOGUE XIV. Theron alone in the fields His soliloquy on
the charms of rural nature-His reflections on the past conferences-
Aspasio reinforces his arguments for the imputation of Christ's righ-
teousness-Recommends self-examination, the keeping of a diary, and
prayer for the enlightening Spirit-Departs, under an engagement to
correspond by letter.

LETTER I. Aspasio opens the correspondence with some impor-
tant articles of duty, designed to facilitate self-examination, and pro-
mote conviction of sio.

LETTER II. Theron, convinced of the iniquity of his life, and
the evil of his heart, sees the necessity of a better righteousness than his

a
own—Desires a farther explanation, and a fuller proof, of the doctrines
under debate.

LETTER III. Aspasio proves the point, from the Liturgy, the
Articles, the Homilies of the Church of England, and the writings of
the fathers.

LETTER IV. Aspasio re-establishes the tenet, from the Scriptures
of the Old Testament.

LETTER V. Aspasio relates a remarkable panic-Terrors of the
day of judgment-Christ's righteousness, and its imputation, largely
demonstrated from the New Testament.

LETTER VI. Theron takes a cursory view of the habitable crea-
tion—Traces the perfections of nature through the earth, air, and fire
-Admirable construction, and advantageous effects, of these elements.

LETTER VII. Aspasio takes occasion to display the no less ad-
mirable perfection of Christ's righteousness Its principle, extent, per-
severance.

LETTER VIII. Aspasio describes a drought-Majesty and beau-
ty of the sun, after a night of rain—The meritorious excellency of
Christ's righteousness illustrated, from the magnificence of his works,
and the divinity of his person.

LETTER IX. Theron's account of the western cliffs, the wonders
of the ocean, and the benefits of navigation.

LETTER X. Aspasio enumerates the much richer benefits result-
ing from the imputation of Christ's ness-Shews their happy
influence on holiness of heart, and obedience of life.

LETTER XI. Aspasio exemplifies the last particular in two very
memorable instances-Especially in the conduct of Abraham offering
up bis son Isaac.

described in Scripture-Its blessed and glorious effects.
