TO THE

MOST REVEREND AND RIGHT HONOURABLE

His Grace

THE LORD ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY,

(Dr. William Howley.)

MAY IT PLEASE YOUR GRACE ;

HAVING completed this new edition of the Works of my revered Ancestor, I was anxious to send it forth to the World under the patronage of some eninent character. To whom therefore could I so properly look, as to the highest Dignitary of our Church; win the history, discipline, and doctrines of which one following volumes are so closely connerted? And I entreat your Grace to allow me to add, that I was more especially led to desire permission to send out this edition under you Grace's sanction, by the remembrance of our having passed together, as companions and friends, in the same class, and during the same years, through Wickham's Colleges both at Winchester and Oxford.

But while I mean only to thank your Grace for having so kindly complied with my request, and accompanied that consent with the valuable statement, that

my celebrated Great Grandfather's writings have long since received the approbation of Divines and Scholars;" I will not forget the latter part of your Grace's letter, in which you desire, that I would confine myself “ to a simple inscription, and without compliments.” I hope I shall not be considered guilty of disobeying that injunction by saying, that

your

Grace's amiable virtues are too universally acknowledged to require any testimony from so humble an individual as I am; instead of which, may it please your Grace, with your usual condescension and goodness, to accept this offering from me as a mark of my high esteem and respect.

That Providence may be pleased to bestow on your Grac., for many years to come, life and health to promote the interests of our Church and Nation, shall be among the prayers of him, who has the honour to be

Your Grace's
obliged and most obedient servant,

RICHARD BINGHAM, New-House, Gosport, 26 February, 1829.
