In critical cases and complaints, physicians are generally obliged to compound medicines, and call them MIXTURES. They care little as to their numbers, so that they imagine they prescribe the right medicines for the fevers, &c. according to the respective syMPTOMS, requiring firm judgment and experience, as to quantities and quality ; so, I, perceiving England's heart and soul sickness, in CHURCH and state, have ventured to mix, in this book, to the best of my humble skill and knowledge, many subjects, forming strange mixtures of civil, political, and religious matters : regardless, like physicians, how disagreeable soever they may be to the PALATES, or rather (on this occasion) to men's consciences, eyes, and understandings; there. fore, I admit, NECESSITY has obliged me to use the strongest comPOUNDS ; but all, not possessing common sense or reflection, will “ THROW PHYSIC TO THE DOGS,” regardless of THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, who daily offers his divine medicine, GRATIS.
