THE RIGHT REVEREND
LORD BISHOP OF LONDON.
HATEVER relates to the subject of Eloquence in general, and to the Eloquence of the Pulpit in particular, has a peculiar claim to be dedicated to one, who, in addition to his other eminent qualities, has exhibited, both from the Pulpit and the Press, so distinguished a model of the excellence and commanding influence of this art.
Should this translation, with the accompanying notes and illustrations, chiefly derived from authors of celebrity, serve to promote in the English reader, and particularly in students for the Pulpit or the Bar, an attention to those principles which may conduce to their future usefulness in life, my utmost wishes will be gratified.
I have the honour to be, my Lord,
JOHN NEAL LAKE.
