TO THE MOST REVEREND HIS GRACE THE LORD ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, METROPOLITAN OF ALL ENGLAND, AND ONE OF HIS MAJESTY'S MOST HONORABLE PRIVY COUNCIL, &c. &c. &c.
IT is with much diffidence, that I presume to offer THIS HISTORY OF THE METROPOLITICAL CITY AND CHURCH OF CANTERBURY to your notice; but it is a subject in which your GRACE is so materially interested, that I should have deemed myself guilty of the greatest disrespect, had I omitted to solicit YOUR PATRONAGE of it.
That it may meet with your Grace's approbation, and that you may long continue to preside over the church of Canterbury, to its prosperity and happiness, is the sincere with of,
Your Grace's most respectful,
and most obliged
DEC. 1, 1800.
