The CHARACTER of
Dr GROSVENOR'S MOURNER.

THE late Excellent JAMES HerveY, M. A. in a

Letter to a Friend, on Occasion of the Death of a near 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 adminislred. I am never without some of these “ little Books, to give away to my Acquaintance under c Afflictions, especially on their Loss of dear Relations, wand 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 Chriltianity is profesied,"

See Mr HERVEY's Letters, Vol. II. Letter CI.

Dr STONHOUSE, in his Friendly Advice to

a PATIENT (Ninth Edit. Page 37-) thus recommends the fame Treatise.

56. THIS excellent little Piece is written in short Essays, “ after the manner of the Specla:ors; I always keep á " Number of them by me, to distribute as Opportunity “ ferves, imasediately aíter the Death of some of my Pa" tients, whole Firmiles appear to stand in need of the 6. Confolations theicin given; and who have thewn, dur"sing my Atiendance, a proper Temper and Disposition 66 to perute and profit by them.”
