,! -! ^ S the following meets contain
reflections which are the produce of many years enquiry: so, I hope, my reader will not be surprized, or make it a matter of complaint, is he should find me in one part to differ from myself in another; but would rather think it strange, is I should not, seeing it is what men of free enquiry are always liable to; because those evidences, which are the ground of their persuasions, are, by such enquiry, liable to be differently perceived by them. A proper and well-grounded assent to the truth os any proposition, is found- . ed on a perception of the evidence, upon which the truth of that proposition is supposed to depend: and, therefore, as our perception of such evidence is, in many cases, liable to alter and change; that is; what we perceive to
be conclusive to day may appear otherwise to morrow j so our opinions arc liable to alter and change likewise. And as I have, in the course of my enquiries, had a strict regard to truth, and this has led me sometimes to differ from myself, by a change of my opinions: so I am ready to retract and
give up my opinion I have embraced or maintained, when mch farther evidence shall appear, as renders it just and proper so to do.
