One of the best Meanes to conveigh Practical Divinity to the Church bejond Seas is a genuine and true translation of the best book's in Practical Divinity. But to translate aright is a very hard matter, for first hee must bee a Godly Man else hee wil never expresse the spirit of the Man et 2dly a Man of large abilities that hase a full compasse of the Language. The Germans have Notions enough but they doe not know How to apply them et to set them on vpon the Conscience. Also the Preaching Eloquence of English divines is very hard to bee exprest. For they have made a New Language as it were, vsing New Termes a New phraseology et therfore it were requisite one should make a new Lexicon for it, or Cause some English Godly-divine et able withal to translate some, such a one as Harris Sips or Cotton, their or other Treatises Rogers of Suffolk hase few new notions but several turnings et expressions to apply it, et Ca-

Hee thought wee had very few temporary Beleevers in Germany, for all their state seemed to bee meere Civility, only Civil Men, et therfore this is a fit subject for them. Hee hase preached it over a whole yeare, so that hee thought there was no deceit in their Estates left vntouched or vndiscovered. Yet in that too hee hase not handled the several Objections et Cavils which Civil Men might or vse to make against the highnes of the Rule, and then the Remedy is not handled neither.
