    PREFACE HIS is not the first time that the idea of a volume like the present has cntered the minds of some of William Laws admirers. John Sterling, writing in l849 to Professor Maurice, his brother-in-law, cnthusimtically announces his dis covery of one of Laws earliest philosopllical Essays, and suggests to Blaurice that he should see to its being reprinted for the sake of his students and other thoughtful young men. In a subsequent letter Sterling puts forward the idea that a volume might be made out of Law somewhat similar to Colcridges well-known volume, the Aid8 to R ection. And though, uil happily, the larger undertaking was never carried out, yet the Essay referred to, -the Remarks on the Fable of the Bees, -wvm republished by the Messrs. Riacmillan in 1844, with a singularly characteristic Introduction by Professor Mauricc, a piece of work that will make all who rcad it greatly regret that its able and versatile author did not go on to render iu our day the same scrvice to William Law that Coleridge had rendered to Arcllbishop Leighton. I need not say that it never entered my head to attempt the task that Sterling had in vain called upon Mauricc to undertake. As it is, X hare often felt that I have been alnlost too bold even to make bareextracts out of a11 author concerning vl o M m a urice homolo gates the saying of another literary friend of his to the effect that Law is the most continl ow - writer in the English lan guage. At the same time, what I have ventured to do in this voluine I have done with immense enjoyment and ad vantage to myself. The study of this quite incomparable writer has been nothing less than m epoch in my life. The Introductory Lecture st, ulcls verymuch as it was delivered at the opening of my classcs for the study of Law this winter. The Rules and Irayers 011 pp. 311-328 are from Christopher TValtons Notes and Mentorials for a BiograpIty of JVilZiam Law. Printed for private circulation. London, 1854.
