Of law there can be no less acknowledged, than that her seat is the bosom of God, -her voice the harmony of the world. All things in Heaven and earth do her homage ; the very least as feeling her care, and the greatest as not exempted from her power : both angels and men, and creatures of what condition soever, though each in different sort and manner, yet all with uniform consent, admiring her as the mother of their peace and joy.—(Hooker's Eccl. Pol.)

TO THE KING,
