Of the other Latin pieces, viz. the treatise entitled "Pax Terris," and a few Letters among the Polemical Works, the Editor, not finding any translation already made, did not think them of such importance as to require one.
The Editor originally proposed to accompany this edit tion with a NEW life of the AUTHOR: but, finding the materials for such a work accumulate very much in his hands, he has judged it best to limit this publication to the Bishop's own writings; and has, therefore, prefixed only such memoirs as the Author has left of himself; reserving whatever else he has been able to collect together for a separate volume, to be published hereafter, and to be independent of the present undertaking. He would only here add to what the Author has said of himself in the "Specialities" of his Life, his "Letter from the Tower," and his "Hard Measure," that he was gathered to his fathers in a good old age; dying at Higham, near Norwich, Sep. 8. 1656, aged eighty-two years: and was buried in the church-yard at that place.
