Have with great Satisfaction Perus'd
your Account of Mr. Bonnell's Life and Character, and his Meditations that are interspers’d, through which there shines a true Spirit of Christian Piety : And as I had the happiness to be well acquainted with him, and was consequently a juft Admirer of his truly valuable good Qualities, and Christian Virtues, of his extraordinary Pięty, his unaffected Humility, and his unwearied Zeal for
the promoting Religion and Virtue ; fo 'I do hope, and with Assurance promise
myself that a faithfulAccount of all these, may doabundance of good in the World;
holy Examples being undoubtedly the 'beft Argnments for Piety,and convincing
Men much sooner than any Sermons and Discourse.
* I do therefore heartily approve of your Design in. Publishing what you have Communicated to me; . and that his good Example may infuence many
to an Imitation of his holy Life and conversation, is the earnest Prayer of,
Brother, and Humble milton, Arch-dea.
Servant, con of Armagh,

Have perused the following Life of
Mr. James Bonnell, and do find there such a just Representation of that sincere, unaffected Piety, which shined so clearly in that excellent Person, that I earnestly recommend theReading of it to the World, and do beseech God it may have the effect which is propos'd by Publishing it, to recover the true Spirit and Power of Religion in this Age.
