First Sentence

SINCE the Knowledge of Ourfelves, and of all Beings around us, is of the greateft Benefit, as well as the moft pleafing and entertaining Subject of the Inquiry of Mankind; and fince the Knowledge of the Creation and Continuance of dependent Beings, governed by the eftablifhed Laws of the Almighty Being, although in Speculation it be high and unbounded in Speculation it be high and unbounded; yet fo far as it inlarges our Underftanding, and gives us a greater Idea of the Immenfity of the Power and Goodnefs of the Great Creator and Supporter of all Things; by fo much it will conduce to our forming ourfelves, and conforming our Actions to his Will, in hopes of attaining to that everlafting Happinefs we expect in a future State: I therefore hope it will be pardonable in me to attempt to inlarge our Notions, and to endeavour to foar above our common Conception of Things, in hopes that by feveral Attempts to inquire into the hidden Ways of Providence, fome Hints may be given to others to inlarge upon, and to induce others to think upon thefe Parts of Metaphyfical Knowledge, which may probably employ great Part of our Time in a future State, in contemplating the Works of Creation and Providence.
