Of the authors who are quoted in this work, mostly in the History, who have written some more and some less, in support of the doctrine herein advocated (except three or four.) I have classed all together, as Universalists, who have believed in the final salvation of all men; having paid no regard to their different sentiments how God will deal with souls hereafter to make them fit subjects of happiness.

The writer wishes Universalists of the present day to particularly notice Murray, pp. 317, 318. Universalists agree in so many things, they should not differ about non-essentials, and give enemies to the glorious doctrine we believe, cause to speak evil of it. The doctrine of universal salvation, and the final restoration, are both good, or infinitely better than the doctrine of the eternal existence of sin and misery. Murray, speaking of Winchester, says, 66 Though we are not agreed in sentiment in every particular, we join in one glorious truth; and on this ground I hail him as my friend and brother." So do ye one to another, and all be united.See page 362.
