The CHARACTER of
Dr GROSVENOR'S MOURNER.
HE late Excellent James Hervey, M. A, in a
Letter to a Friend, on Occasion of the Death of a Tear Relation, expresses himself thus, “ Cive me Leave “ to present you with, and recommend to you on this me
lancholy Occasion a repeated Perusal of Dr Grosvenor's“ Mourner; or, The Afflicted Relieved: which is a most “ valuable Gem; and as it is written in Numbers, like " the Spectators, it will not weary your Attention; I am “ sure you stand in need of the Consolations and Helps
therein adminiflred. I am never without some of thele “ little Books, to give away to my Acquaintance under " Afflictions, especially on their Loss of dear Relations, 6 and valuable Friends, for which Purposes I think it one “ of the moft judicious and universally useful Books extant, “ and well deserves to be translated into the Language of “ every Nation where Christianity is profefied.”
See Mr Hervey's Letters, Vol. II. Letter CI.

“THIS excellent little Piece is written in short Essays, « after the manner of the Spezla:ors; I always keep a " Number of them by me, to distribute as Opportunity « ferves, immediately after the Death of some of my Pa
tients, whole Fimiles appear to stand in need of the ". Confolations theicin given; and who have shewn, dur“ing my Atiendance, a proper Temper and Disposition " to perute and profit by them."
