LETTER II.

“ FOR THE RIGHT WORSHIPFULL EDWARD CARTIR, ESQ.

« SIR, “ I have here sent you a booke that may peradventure give you some entertainement out of “ the noveltie of the subject, but that is not all my reason of presentinge it to you at this time; “ for, since I lived in this parish, I have published a volume of eighty sermons preached by “ my father; and have prepared fixty more, which are licensed and entered in the Printers' “ Halle; which is, as farr as I can drive them, untill the times allter. I was encouradged to “ undertake this worke by the learnedest men in the kingdome of all professions, and was often “ told that I should deserve better by doinge foe, then by keepinge them to my owne use, for “ by this meanes I did not only preach to the present adge, but to our children's children. “ Sir, I write this to you that you may judg what a sad condition a scholler is in ; when at a “public vestry in this parish, I was told by a pittifull ignorant baker, I was an idle man, and “ never preached.

“ Your humble servant,

“JO. DONNE."
