T has been an allowed Maxim in all
Ages, that Liberty and Learning ex-

ist and flourish together; for we find, in both antient and modern History, that wherever Commerce has prosper'd (as in Free States she only can) that the Liberal Arts have always found Protection and Encouragement.

I hope therefore, Sir, I shall neither offend you, by presuming to prefix your Name to this Third Volume of a Work intended to set Merit in its true Light; nor yet by mentioning some part of your amiable Character : Because every one will be ready to justify me when I say,

That

That your Candour and Benevolence, your Love of Science, and impartial Favour to Worth of every kind, with your Compassion to the Distressed, have eminently appear’d thro' your whole Conduet, which will perpetuate and endear your Name to latest Posterity.

That you may long enjoy the true Satisfa&ion, arising from such worthy and generous Principles and A&ions, is the sincere Wish of him, who is, with very great Respect and Esteem,

SIR,

* Your most devoted,

Humble Servant,

Richmond, Sept.

17, 1748.
