Cbriftian Reader,

Here present thee with a Third Vo lume of Modern Lives, concerning which some may objeâ, and say, That many of them have been Printed already, and in a more large and copious manner than we find them here? To which I answer, 'Tis true, and yet I judge it necessary thus to Print them

again. For I have observed, that being generally Printed in little Volumes, few of them come to a fc cond Impression, but after a little time, are thrown aside and forgotten; whereas, when many cxcellent Lives are collected into one or more Volumes, they do continue, and will ro do, till Printing shall be no more: Witness Plutarcbs and Melcbior Adams, oc. Lives

And if any except against my contra&ing of some of them, I answer, That if you please to compare them together, you will find nothing left out that is of special concernment. I liave always affe&cd mitun in pancis, to include much matter in few words, and yet withal, to avoid obscurity.

I have been cncouraged to make this Colle&tion, and row to Publish it, finding that my former Labours in this kird, have been accepred with the Saints, and in the Church of Christ ; which is apparent, for that they have becn Printed four tiines in a few years space, and yet never less than a Thou.
