Who was Editor of an early Edition of his Works.
SIR, I RECEIVED your very valuable and no loss acceptable present, some weeks ago. I should have acknowledged the favour sooner ; but I chose to stay till I had tasted the dish you set before me.
And indeed I find it to be savoury meat, the true manna; food for the soul.
Your worthy' relative was a workman that need not be ashamed. He knew how, clearly to state, and solidly to establish the faith of God's elect, and the doctrine according to godliness. O! that my heart, and the heart of every reader, may be opened, by the eternal Spirit, to receive the precious truths !
The letter at the end of the first volume, is a judicious performance. It rightly divides the word of truth, and lays the line, with a masterly hand, between the presumptuous Legalist, and the licentious Antinomian. -- I am particularly pleased with the honourable testimony bore to those two excellent books, Dr Owen's Treatise on Justification, and Mr Marshalls Gospel-mystery of Sanctification : books fit to be recommended by so good a judge !
If the Lord pleases to give Theron and Aspasio any acceptance in Scotland, I shall be sincerely glad; but if he vouchsafes to make them, not only welcome, but useful visitants, I shall exceedingly rejoice. In should think them calculated to promote the honour and further the gospel of JESUS CHRIST, I hope you will favour them with your recommendation, and accompany them with your prayers ; which will be a fresh instance of kindness to,
and cbedient Servant, WESTON,
JAMES HERVEY, July 8. 1755.
