Coëgisti me, Nepotiane chariffime, lapidato jam virginitatis libello, quem fanctæ Euftochio Romæ scripseram, poft annos decem rursus Beth leem ora reserare, & confodiendum me linguis om. nium prodere. Aut enim nihil scribendum fuit, ne hominum judicium subiremus, quod tu facere prohibuifti : aut scribentes nosse cunctorum adverlùm nos maledicorum tela torquenda. Quos obfecro ut quiescant, & desinanț maledicere. Non enim ut adversariis, sed ut amicis fcripfimus. Nec inveci fumus in eos qui peccant, sed ne peccent monuimus. Neque in illos tantum ; sed & in nofmetipfos severi judices fuimus. Volentesque feftucam de oculo alterius tollere, noftram prius trabem ejecimus. Nullum læsi; nullius nomen saltem descriptione fig. natum eft. Neminem specialiter meus fermo pulsavit. Generalis de vitiis disputatio eft. Qui mihi irafci voluerit, ipfe de se quòd talis fit, confitebitur.

D. Chryfoftomus de Sacerdotio.
D. Gregorii Nazianzeni Apologetica Oratio.

These two Pieces may be found amongst their respective Works, in Greek and Latin. But there is a Greek and Latin Edition of them both together, printed at Cambridge in Oktavo in -1712. with preliminary Differtations by Mrr Hughes, and also with the Notes of Mr. Hughes on St. Chryfoftom, and Mr. Thirlby on St. Gregory Nazianzen,

the First or Second Edition. Mr. Houdly's Reasonableness of Conformity.

lumes in Oétavo, Lond. 1708. Mr. Nelson's Companion for the Festivals and Fafts of
