Excerpt from The Young Gentleman and Lady Instructed in Such Principles of Politeness, Prudence, and Virtue, as Will a Sure Foundation for Gaining Respect, Esteem, and Satisfaction in This Life, and Eternal Happiness in a Future State, Vol. 1: Interspersed With Such Observations and Maxims, as Demonstrate the Danger and Folly of Vice, and the Advantage and Wisdom of Virtue Could I be jul'tly charged with being fetid ous on an improper fubieet, or trifling on a ferious one, I {hould defervedly draw cenfure upon me: Or, were I confetous of any thing in thefe eflezyr that is not innocent at leaft, or not fincerely deligned to dtfcountenance vice and ignorance, and to fupport the Interefl: of true Wifdom and virtue, I lhould be fenfible that I could not be too feverely handled by the molt ill-natured critic. But as I am convmced of my own integrity, and that there is Certainly no greater fenfible pleafure to a good-natured man, than if he can by any means gratify or inform the mind of another; fo, notwuhfiand ing this general malevolence towards thofe, who communicate their thoughts 1n print, I hope my readers will lock with a friendly regard on what is here offered, where they are fure of finding no tendency to vice and prophanenefs: So that if my thoughts have norhmg in them, they at leaf't Wlll do no harm, and thew an honefi induftry, and a good in tention in the author: And if they teach him any thing he was ignorant of before, the reader cannot but look Upon lnmfelf as obliged to the and confider me as his particular be nefaetor, if I convey to him any improvement of his underfianding any innocent amufement; or any incentive to fome moral virtue or te ligious duty, which are the greatef't gifts that are in the power of man to bef'tow.
