TO THE READER.

[ocr errors]

N EMBLEM is but a silent parable: let

not the tender eye check, to see the allusion to our blessed SAVIOUR figured in these types. In holy scripture he is sometimes called a fower, sometimes a fisher, fometimes a physician ; and why not presented so, as well to the eye as to the ear? Before the knowledge of letters, GOD was known by Hieroglyphics. And indeed what are the heavens, the earth, nay, every creature, but : Hieroglyphics and Emblems of his glory? I have no more to say: I wish thee as much pleasure in the reading, as I had in writing. Farewell, Reader.

Reader, this Book shall teach the pious Heart
To soar from Earth, and better Views impart,
Flaming with Zeal to rise to Hearn above,
And make the Tri-une God the object of its hove.

HÆCLAUS, HIC APEX SAPIENTIÆEST, EA VIVENTEM
APPETERE QUÆ MORIENTI FORENT APPETENDA.

This is true Praise, this lifts our Wisdom high;
Always to live, as we would wish to die.
