Excerpt from Letters on Theron and Aspasio: Addressed to the Author

If 'tis truly good, Is best rewarded when best understood.

He has had the satisfaction to find, that his leading scope has been as generally understood, as could well be expected of a subject destined to be the object of envy and disgust in every nation; yea, so generally, that even those who have thought fit to declare publicly, that, upon reading the whole performance, they were not able to collect a single idea from it, have at the same time acknowledged, that it occasioned them no small' fretfulness and disgust - an effect neither uncommon nor improper for the gospel to have on its oppo neuts. Men are commonly much more chagrined at stubborn truth, than at the nonsense and folly of their neighbours. For it is an old maxim, that we suffer fools gladly, knowing ourselves to be wise.
