Excerpt from The Works of the Reverend William Law, M. A., Sometime Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, Vol. 2 of 9: I. Remarks Upon a Book, Entitled, 'the Fable of the Bees,' &C.; II. The Case of Reason, or Natural Religion, Fairly and Fully Stated, &C.; III. The Absolute Unlawfulness of Stage-Entertainments Fully Demonstrated

I shall spend no Time in Preface, or general Re?ections, but proceed directly to the Examination of such Passages as expose moral Virtue, as a Fraud and imposition, and render all Pretences to it, as odious and contemptible.

Though I direct myself to you, I hope it will be no Offence, if I sometimes speak, as if I was speaking to a Christian, or show some ways of thinking, that may be owing to that kind of worship which is professed amongst us. Ways of thinking derived from revealed Religion are much more suitable to our low Capacities, than any arrogant Pretences to be wise, by our own Light.

Moral Virtue, however disregarded in Practice, has hitherto had a speculative Esteem amongst Men; her Praises have been celebrated by Authors of all kinds, as the confessed Beauty, Ornament, and Perfection of Human Nature.

On the contrary, Immorality has been looked upon as the greatest Reproach and Torment of Mankind no Satire has been thought severe enough upon its natural Baseness and Deformity, nor any Wit able to express the Evils it occasions in private Life, and public Societies.
