A Word in Season.

THE Author is not insensible that the

| Publication of such a Treatise as this at a Time when the SWORD (the first of Evils here treated of) is now ready to be Theathed 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 Blefsings 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 Eftablishment of Man can long stand. No 'doubt had we lived in Nineveh in the Days of Jonah, or in Babylon in the Days of Daniel, there are great Numbers among us that would have thought the Preaching of the former and the Interpretation of the latter not more Seasonable than This now is. But Nineveh was reprieved from its impending Ruin by Attention to the One: and Babylon which repented not perished with its King: and so muft Spiritual Babylon likewise with her King, and all that drink out of her Cup, except they repent.
