I Have Perused a Pamphlet Entitled, Some Reasons Why the Practice of Inoculation Ought to Be Introduced Into the Town of Bury at Present, and Have Been Surprized to Find This Elaborate Piece So Little in Substance, and So Little to the Purpose: Insomuch That at the First, I Determined Only to Point Out, and Expose the Mistakes of It in Conversation, Being Under a Full Perswasion and Conviction, That the Author Would Triumph Neither a Week nor a Day, But That the Project Would Very Soon End in Confusion. Being Since Reminded of a Warm Resolution Made by Me, to Oppose Any Efforts to Revive a Practice So Justly Exploded and Condemned by All Rational Men, I Have Changed My Mind, and Set Pen to Paper; But If a Promise to Answer an Author Before I Knew the Weight and Strength of His Arguments, May Be by Some Thought Rashness and Prejudice, I Hope an Abhorrence I Have of a Practice So Cruel, Unsafe, and Uncertain to Mankind, an Impartial Consideration and Full Acquaintance of What Has Been Advanced Pro and Con, and a Great Diffidence of the Author's Abilities to Support It, May to Others Clear Me From the Imputation of Rashness and Prepossession [electronic resource]

    a| I have perused a pamphlet entitled, Some reasons why the practice of inoculation ought to be introduced into the town of Bury at present, and have been surprized to find this elaborate piece so little in substance, and so little to the Purpose: Insomuch that at the first, I determined only to point out, and expose the Mistakes of it in Conversation, being under a full Perswasion and Conviction, that the Author would Triumph neither a Week nor a Day, but that the Project would very soon end in Confusion.
