Publication of such a Treatise as this at a Time when the SWORD (the first of
In. Evils here treated of) is now ready to be Sheathed in these parts of the World where it hath so long and so cruelly ravaged, will be judged by a great many very Unseasonable. And so indeed it would be, were but the Minds of people disposed to receive the Bleffings of Peace : or could they be brought to understand and consider their true Interest: which cannot be expected without strictly pursuing the Methods of Justice, without either Favour for or Prejudice against Any Person or Party whatsoever, and by closely adhering to the immutable Standard of God's Everlasting Truth, without which no Establishment of Man can long stand.
