The 13th chapter must be compared with the gth chapter of Revelations, and various parts of Daniel's visions; there is no occasion to mention any particular verses, the attentive and serious reader cannot possibly mistake them.
The remaining chapters will be found to be peculiarly applicable to the Apocalypse and Daniel's visions, and are wonderfully sublime and beautiful; but dreadfully terrific in their dea nunciations.
I close this short postscript with the 35th verse of the 14th chapter.
- For after death shall the judgment come, when we shall live again : and then shall the names of the righteous be manifest, and the works of the ungodly shall be declared.”

The “ LITTLE BOOK” was ready in London on-the 12th of February 1811, (the day parliam ment was opened by commission from the Regent, but being prevailed upon from issuing it ibere (which I now look upon as a peculiar interposition of the Divine Being.--O Almighty Father! may I be enabled to perform thy whole will), I had the four thousand books conveyed to the carrier, to be forwarded to my residence at Great Hucklow near 'Tideswell, Derbyshire. Soon after their arrival reflecting upon the 9th & 10th versos of the 17tli chapter of Revelations where the seven heads are “ seven mountains," and they being the
seven kings," I judged it right to delay their publication, (not a single book having been sold) until the SIXTH KING had bi
come up" as it would then make the prophecy more correct, and enable me to come forth with a still greater degree of accuracy; my great wish being the establishi. ment of Scripture Truth.
La conséquence of this Act, all the restrictions on the Regent's power would expire and the law would devolve upon liimi ALL THE ROYAL AUTHORITY, AS POSSESSED BY THE SOVEREIGN, IN ALL ITS VARIOUS BRANCUIES.” Sce the Minister's Speech on Thursday Jan 12, 1812. HEtherefore will be the “Sovereign with “ Royal Authority and the 6 SIXTH KING” the “ onę is” and when TIIE LITTLE BOOK is opened. in an actual state of being or existence. See the latter part of the 41st page of the said Little Book.
Examine the 29, 30, and 31st verses of the
fourth chapter of Daniel ; they begin with "at the end of the TWELVE MONTHS,” and end with " the kingdom is departed from thee." A kingdom cannot be departed from one monarchi, until another monarch has come up,” therefore the “ seven times" (see the 5th page, introduction,) mentioned in the subsequent verses, must cop:mence at that period.
The passages cannot be misunderstood, or misapplied.
The vials, with various other connected circumstances (such as those in the notes page 28, 42, and 43 of the Little Book,) must likewise take date from the said period, and not from the commencement of the restricted regency, and let it be remembered he is still the same individual, one of the seven mountains (figuratively so, being highi, raised up, or exalted,) and the first of Daniel's two kings.
A greater attention to the 4th and 17th verses of the 11th chapter of Daniel induces me to give them the following clucidation, “That" his posterity (A-bad- on’s alias Napoleon's) will rich rule according to his domirion" (the poster, or allthority he possesses) but that "his kir gdom” will " BX PLUCKED UP even for others beskues thoro" (for others besides his posterity) and that“she”. (bis present Empress) shall it be for him (or will not be for his views.) Compare the passages with the 26th yerse of the 7th chapter.

and compare those verses with the 36th,3711, 38th, and s9th verses of the 11th chapter. He is to “ work deceitfully for he shall COME UP” and “honour a God (esteem, or give glory to) whom his fathers knew not” (did not properly bow down to, honour, or worship.) See the 23rd and 38th verses of die said Ilth chapter..
The two remarkable 4th and 5th chapters must be duly and properly regarded --- My reason returned unto me; and I was established in my kingdom," See the 36th verse of the 4th chapter.
The awful and tremendous COMET, which Miilton says shakes pestilence and war, with vam rious other wonderful appearances, alarming concussions, horrid murders, multiplied robberies, and crimes of different descriptions : great commercial distress, dreadful storms, and lamentable shipwrecks, with the holy cities midday darkness; cannot but be viewed as barbinguls or signs of the calamitous vials.
