MADAM,

TH E following Work was composed with a view to assist young minds in the acquisition of Religious Knowledge, by removing the difficulties which prevent their obtaining an early acquaintance with the Holy Scriptures. I presume to hope that my design will excuse me, both to Your Maiesty and the world, for the boldness of the undertaking, and the defects in the performance of it.

The public will not wonder, that I should be particularly solicitous to obtain the honour of Your Royal Patronage, as Your Malesty is so eminently distinguished for the practice of Virtues which are no where perfectly taught but in the Sacred Volume.

'>;''-. .. It is the peculiar felicity of this nation, that every mother may look up to the Throne for a pattern of the truly maternal character, and behold Your MAjESTY»instructing Your Ro^al Progeny in the discharge of those duties which lead to, ^mortal Happiness.

May the influence of Your illustrious example be universally extended! May Your Maiesty long continue to bless this land, arid soften the cares of Royalty to the best of Sovereigns! Arid when you shall obtain an incorruptible crown, may it be remembered by posterity, that Your MaJesty added lustre to an earthly one, by

adorning adorning your mind with the graces of Christianity, and diffusing happiness to all around you!

I am, Madam,
With all humility and gratitude,
Your Malesty's
Most dutiful, and most devoted Servant,

SARAH TRIMMER.
