Word of Reconciliation is that sacred Deposa-

It is for cbe lake of others that I bave spent this little strength ; luch whose veins are not as yet infe&ed with this poison. For them have I prepared this Antidote, that their spirits being confirmed in the ancient and received Truths of God, they may not by whatever devices of Satan, or his inftruments, be removed to another Gospell. In the managing of this controver fe, I must acknowledge (what my Margin confessech) my selfe to owe not a little to the learned Grozius. But whether to Grotius Oribodox, or Grotius Heterodox more, I must say I cannot readily tell. I have made use of both, comparing the one with the other, his former with his later thoughts, bis Book De Satisfan ctionc, with some of his Comments. So doing, I have found the one clear and candid, free from subterfuge, er evasoox; such as (whatever bath been aflayed by way of reply to it) may give full fatisfaction to any unprejudiced fpirit : The oxher fo palpably guilty of both, as that they deserve both Censure and Pity. And this to me, (and I suppose it may be the like to others,) hatb been, and is no small confirmacion of this Truth of God. Surely, if any one had been able to answer Gratius, it should bave been Grotim bimselfe, then whom I know none more able to have done it, and (as it seemeth) none more willing. But finding him fo foiled by himselte, lo unable by all bis Artifice, to build again
