ON SINCERITY.

FROM A. B. P. TILLOTSON, (ABRIDGED.) Truth 7 1 7 and sincerity | 7 have | all the ad vantages | 7 of ap | pearance, | 7 and many more. 717 If the show of any thing I 7 be good for any thing, I 17 I am sure 1 7 the re | ality 7 is better:|| 7 for / why 7| 7 does | any man 7 dis | semble, 17 or seem to be that which he | is 7 | not, 7 | | but be cause 7 17 he thinks it |

1 good to have 7 17 the qualities 17 he pre | tends to? || | Now the best 7 | way my 1 7 for a man to | seem to be any thing, I is to be in re | ality, 1 | what he would seem to be: 117 be | sides, 717 it is often as | troublesome | 7 to support the pre | tence of a good 7 | quality, 1 7 as to have it;/ 7 and | if a | 7 man have it not, 1 7 it is / most 7 | likely | he will be discovered to want it; 117 and | then, | all his | labour to | seem to have it, 7 is | lost. 7 || 17 There is something | un | natural 17 in | painting, | 7 which a skilful | eye 7 | 7 will | easily discern 7 | 7 from native | beauty | 7 and com | plexion. 1 1 1

Therefore, | 7 if | any man | think it con | venient to | seem 7 | good, 7 | let him be so in deed: 71

1 1 17 and then 7 | 7 his / goodness will ap | pear

ing | 7 to every one's | 7 satis | faction. || 1.7 Par | ticularly, | | as to the affairs of this 7 | world, 7 1 7 in / tegrity | 7 hath | many ad | vantages over | all the arti | ficial | modes 7 | 7 of dissimu | lation 1 7 and de ceit. 7| | | 7 It is much the / plainer 17 and | easier, | | much the 1 safer, | 7 and more se | cure 7 | way of dealing in the world; 7 | 17 it has | less of trouble and difficulty, | 7 of en tanglement | 7 and per / plexity, 1 7 of danger and

| hazard | 7 in it. 71 | 17 The | arts of de | ceit and | cunning 1 7 con | tinually | grow weaker, / 7 and less serviceable | 7 to 1 those that practise 1

1 them; | 17 where | as | 7 in tegrity | I gains |

| strength by | use; 7|17 and the more and lon

[ocr errors]

ger | any man | practiseth it, | 7 the greater / service 17 it does him; | 17 by con / firming his repu / tation, and encouraging | those | 7 with | whom he hath to do, 717 to re 1 pose the

1 greatest | confidence / 7 in him: 1 | which is an un | speakable ad | vantage | 7 in | business, 1 7 and the af | fairs of life. 7 ||

7 But | insin | cerity | 7 is | very | troublesome to | manage. |17 A | hypocrite | 7 hath | so many | 7 things | 7 to attend to, 17 as make his 1 7 lite | 7 a | very per plexed and I intricate | thing. 7 1117 A | liar | 7 hath | need of a / good 7 | mem

1

7 ory, | | lest he | contra | dict 7 | 7 at / one 7 | time 717 what he said at an other: 711 7 but | truth

7 717 is | always con | sistent, | 7 and 17 needs nothing to help it out: 71 | 7 it is | always | near at hand, 7 1 7 and I sits upon our I lips, 71 17 where | as a | lie 7 1 7 is troublesome, / 7 and | needs a great 7 | many more 7 | 7 to make it | good. 7111

7 In a word, 7 | whatso | ever con | venience | 7 may be thought 7| 7 to l be in | falsehood 7 and dis | simu | lation, | 7 it is soon 7 | over:|| but the incon | venience of it | 7 is per | petual; | 1 7 be cause 7 | 7 it brings a 17 man | under an | ever | lasting | jealousy | and sus / picion ; ! | so that he is not be | lieved 7 1 7 when he speaks the | truth; 7 || 7 nor | trusted | 7 when per haps, 7 17 he | means 7 | honestly, 1 | | When a | man
