N. B. The Female Spectator may be had either compleat in Twenty-Four Books, or any single Books, Price 1 s. each — This Work has met with uncommon Encouragement from People of the sirst Quality; and the Authors have been highly complimented, in Letters U them, hy the most dijlinguishing Judges.
H E great Usesulness of the following Treatise is so apparent, that one would imagine it supersluous, to multiply Words upon this Head ; especially since the good Reception, the Work, called God's Revenge against Murtber, and Adultery, has met with, even in the worst cf Times, with the irnny Editions it has gone through, abundantly demonstrates, that every one is convinced, of the extraordinary Utility, and even Necessity, of somewhat of this Nature; however desective the Performance m \y be, as that besore mentioned undoubtedly is.
To instance only in a sew Points, of the utmost Importance to every one who thinks seriously, and has any Concern for his fature State, the Generality of Readers, by the Manner in which each of thoie Subjects is treated, in the aforefaid Book, are led into two very grofs Mistakes; nameiy, that Nothing but the actual depriving a Man of Lise, in such a Way, as lays the guilty Person open to the Penalty of the Law, as by Sword, Poyfon, Fire, or otherwise, is a Violation of the Sixth Commandment; whereas we are expressly told, by the beloved Apo
sile St. John, in his sirst Epistle, Whosoever hateth his . Brother is a Murtherer; and ye knew that no Murtkerer hath eternal Life abiding in him. How much more then will every Oppressor, every unmerciful Creditor, every cruel and tyrannic Master, every Infraclor os solemn Treaties, who without Provocation lights up the; Fire of War, and every Refuser of Peace, when offered, much more when sued for, upon reasonable Terms, sind himself numbered, among the Breakers of this Command?
Again, with Relation to Adultery, by the Manner Wherein the Compiler of that Work treats upon this Head, and the Examples therein cited, many are induced to imagine, that Nothing, but the actual Commission ot that Crime, with a married Man or' Woman, is a Violation of the Seventh Commandment. But what does our blessed Saviour pofitively assure us, as to this Point, in his divine Sermon upon the Mount? Whesoever looketb on a Woman, to lust after her, hath committed Adultery with her already in his Heart. As also, Whosoever shall put away his Wife, saving for the Cause of Fornication, causeth her to commit Adultery :. Ana whosoever shall marry her thai is divorced, committeth Adultery. Now, by this Comment thereupon, how many otherwise sincere and well-meaning Persons; how many even of the most outragiousty virtuous, who cannot hear, even the Name of aWhore, mentioned, with any Patience; who think no Punishment too bad for every Ofsender whatever, of this Sort; who make no Allowances for almost irresistible Temptation; neither would shew the least Mercy to one; but, confounding the poor deluded Innocent, with the most common Strumpet, would hang or starve all, without Exception; how imny such, we fay, on judging by this Rule, will sind themselves included, in the Number of Transgressors of this Law? In effect, Sccording thereto, it is much to be questioned, Whether there is one, of either Sex,
in these Kingdoms, or any other, who has seen the Age of sifteen, and has not been guilty of ofsending against this Precept; especially, if it be considered, that every immodest Word, or loofe Song, nay, even every fashionable Double Entendre, is a Contravention of it, • •
Neither is this the Case, with Relation to these Two Commandments only, but to all the others in general, which have each of them a most extensive Signisication; and this it highly imports us, to have continually besore our Eyes; for, notwithstanding, by the Practice of the Generality of Mankind, one should be almost tempted, to think the Observation of the Commands, of the First Table, were of very little Importance; and, consequently, that the Violation of them was a very small Fault, if any, as not being so detrimental to Society, nor so highly punished by the Laws of Man, as the Breach of thofe of the Second Table; yet we shall all sind, if we repent not, when it is too late, that the Infraction of either of the former, is equally heinous, or rather' more so, in the Sight of God ; that is, in the Siglu of him who will be our Judge, and will have it in his Power, either to exalt us to everlasting Happiness, Or condemn us to eternal Torments and Misery: In essect, are we not assured by St. James, that Whosoever shall keep the 'whole Lav:, and yet ojsend in one Point, he is guilty of all.
Would any one imagine, the gay Part of the World, and especially what is called the Grande Monde, and the Beau Monde, ever seriously took this into Consideration? For, not to mention thofe who make their Belly their God, or who sell him for a Ribhon,^. Title, a Place, ora Pension, and thereby bxeak the First Command, neither thofe who worship that worst of Idols, a Prime-Minister, or a Favourite, and are thereby guilty of the Violation of the fame; B 2 what
