Excerpt from Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Mr. William Whiston: Containing Memoirs of Several of His Friends Also
The first edition of these Memoirs, which were published by the Author himself in 1748, being entirely sold off, and the demand still continuing, it was thought proper to reprint them; not only as they contain the Author's last corrections to several of his works but as many particulars of an historical nature are interwoven in these Memoirs, which deserve to be preserved and handed down to posterity. The strict integrity and sincerity of the Author were probably the strongest motives for the favourable Reception which the publick have given to these Memoirs, and those will rather encrease, than be diminished by time. For as personal prejudices die away, the character of the writer will be more highly and justly esteemed. This edition is printed from the former very carefully with those alterations and corrections disposed in their proper places which the Author upon his revisal of the work had thrown together at the end of the former edition.
