Notes

First edition; a second and a Dublin edition followed the same year. The work consists of a series of imaginary conversations, in which the literary-minded bishop of Worcester emulates the style and views of Shaftesbury on foreign and Locke on domestic education, following the method of his popular Moral and Political Dialogues (1759).
