TO THE

UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE.

ONE of her grateful Sons,—who always confiders acts

of voluntary justice towards himself as Favours *,dedicates this humble offering. And particularly to her chief ornament for virtue and talents, the Reverend Doctor Beadon, Master of Jesus College.

* Notwithstanding the additional authority of Plato's despicable sayingCum omnibus solvam quod cum omnibus debeo '—the affertion of Machiavel, that-Nissuno confesfera mai haver obligo con uno chi non l'offenda?--and the repetition of it by Father Paul, that-Mai alcuno si pretende obligato a chi l'habbi fatto giustitia ; stimandolo tenuto per le stello di farla .--are not true. They are not true either with respect to nations or to individuals : for the experience of much injustice will cause the forbearance of injury to appear like kindness.
