THESE MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE OF WLLLIA3I PEXN,
THE FIRST STATESMAN,
WHO, BANISHING POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY,

FOUNDED HIS PUBLIC CONDUCT
SOLELY ON THE PRINCIPLES OF JUSTICE,
BY WHICH HE FURNISHED A MODEL OF GOVERNMENT,
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING TO HIS OWN PEOPLE
A SUPERIOR DEGREE OF MORALITY AND HAPPINESS,
AND ENSURING TO FOREIGNERS CONNECTED WITH TPIE SAME
PEACE, SECURITY, MORAL IMPROVEMENT,
AND THE RIGHTS OF MEN,

ARE INSCRIBED ENTIRELY OUT OF RESPECT TO HIS LORDSHIP'S OWN POLITICAL CONDUCT, ONCE AS IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE KINGDOM, AND NOW AS A PEER OF PARLIAMENT, WHEREBY HE HAS SHOWN HIMSELF A VINDICATOR OF THE RIGHTS OF INJURED AFRICA, A FRIEND TO PEACE AND CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM, A PATRON OF CIVIL AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, IN ALL WHICH THE GREAT WILLIAM PENN WAS AN EMINENT FORERUNNER,

BY HIS FRIEXD,

THOMAS GLARES ON.
