Excerpt from The Works of Jonathan Swift, D.D., And Dean of St. Patrick's, Dublin, Vol. 4 of 6: With Copious Notes and Additions, and a Memoir of the Author The world will perhaps be surprised that gentlemen of our com plexion, who have so long been piously employed in overturning the foundations of religion and government, should now stoop to the puny amusement of reading and commending sermons. But your lordship can work miracles as well as write on them; and I dare assure your lordship and the world that there is not an atheist in the whole kingdom (and we are no inconsiderable party) but will readily subscribe to the principles so zealously advanced and so learnedly maintained in those discourses.
