gerous tendency of the use of the OLD Week's

PREPARATION. HAVIVG for many years experienced, in the course of Il my office, that in no one instunce of Christian duty, there reas more need of assistance than in this of the Lord's Supper; and that many devout communicants huve lühoured under the same doubts and scruples concerning a worthy preparation and pariaking of this duty: I am of opinion, that many others would be very glad to find such doubts cleared up, and the cause of such scruples removed for the future, which too commonly disturb and perpler thein with such fears and terrors, as indeed make their desire of being truly religious the burden and misery, instead of the deliglit of their lives.

For, notwithstanding the compiler of the second part of the Old Week's Preparation * (a treatise very improper to come into the hands of many Protestant readers) has observed a quite contrary method: I do not think my time can be better employed, than when I am endeavouring to render the preparation to that holy ordinance orthodox, rational, snd satisfactory to every one. And,

It is certainly a very great fault with the generality of those who have written upon this subject, that they have made it their whole business only to raise and inflame the devotion of communicants, without taking any thought about informing and settling their understandings. .

* The Popisb book of Devotions, from whence all ibe-medita. rions and bymns are taken, which constituies above one balf of the Second part of the Old Week's Preparation, was condemned by Aurbority of Parliament ro be publiciy burnt by the bards of the common bang man; and tbis circumstance I think myself in duty bound to take notice of, to prevent any farther ill consequences among the common people from the use of that hook; notwithstanding it is till presended to be published by a Clergyman of London,
