Publisher Description

The good old expression, 'family burying ground', has something pleasing in it, at least to me. " Alluding to his approaching dissolution, he thus speaks, in a letter addressed to a relative of his earliest schoolmaster:--"I have been at Bath these four months for no purpose, and am therefore to be removed to my own house at Beaconsfield to-morrow, to be nearer a habitation more permanent, humbly and fearfully hoping that my better part may find a better mansion. " It is a source of deep thankfulness for those who reverence the genius and eloquence of this great man, to state, that Burke's religion was that of the Cross, and to find him speaking of the "Intercession" of our Redeeming Lord, as "what he had long sought with unfeigned anxiety, and to which he looked with trembling hope. " The commencing paragraph in his Will also authenticates the genuine character of his personal Christianity.
