Excerpt from The Elements of Logic, Vol. 1: In Four Books


If I lake this opportunity of publishing to the world the esteem I have for a character to which learning is so greatly indebted, I hope you will not think yourself injured by such a declaration from a man that honors you, and who looks upon the liberty of putting the following work under your patronage, as one of the happy incidents of his life.

From the first moment I formed the design of it, I had it in my thoughts to address it to you; and, indeed, what could be more natural, than that I should be ambitions of inscribing a treatise upon the elements of philosophy, to one, who has so eminently distinguished himself by his extensive knowledge in that, as well as all the other branches of human learning?

Your great abilities in every kind, have deservedly recommended you to the notice of your king and country, and occasioned your being courted and importuned to accept of those high offices of state, which others pursue with so much eagerness, and find it often difficult to obtain, by all the arts and endeavors of ambition. Nor have your talents been confined to the view of your country alone. Foreign nations have seen and admired you, and still speak with the greatest applauses of your wise and able conduct, when it was your province to act as a British minister abroad.
