A SUPPLEMENT

TO

THE MORNING EXERCISE

AT CRIPPLEGATE :

OR,

SEVERAL MORE CASES OF CONSCIENCE

PRACTICALLY RESOLVED,

BY SUNDRY MINISTERS.

Our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity,

not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world.-2 Corinthians i. 12.

Conscientiam est nescio quid divinum, et nunquam perit, officium nostrum nobis semper

ad memoriam revocat.-DOROTHEUS, Biblioth. Patrum tom. iv. “ Conscience is an inexpressible and divine something, which never dies, but which is con

stantly employed in recalling our duty to our recollection."-Edit. Querimus, quomodo animus semper æqualis, secundoque cursu eat, et propitius sibi sit, et

sua lætus adspiciat ; et hoc gaudium non interrumpat, sed placido statu maneat, nec

altollens se unquam, nec deprimens.-Seneca De Tranquillitate Animæ, p. 678. “ This, then, is the subject of our inquiry : How the mind of man may be always calm and

equable, proceed onward in a prosperous course, may not be vindictive but benignant toward itself, and may contemplate its endowments and possessions with a joy of complacency; how it may avoid the interruption of this joy, and may itself continue in a state of placid tranquillity, being at no time unduly elated or depressed."-Edit.
