The modern Christian; or, practical sinner: exemplified, in the monstrous villanies of the age, and the great coolness and indifference of mankind towards their Creator, and the vast concern of salvation. The Farce of a Sick-Bed, and the Humours of the last Hours, in most Examples of Life. Punch and Port, the great Reliefs, in troubled Consciences. H-ll thought no hotter than a Town-Bagnio; and the D-l a sine well-bred Gentleman. Fasting, forgot in South Britain and Ireland. Our Roast-Beef, a weightier Incentive than our Religion, for Foreigners to visit us. Hypocrisy, a certain Sign of Insolvency. A Story of a 6 per cent. Lady, who pray'd her Friends and Acquaintances out of 30,000 l. principal Money. Marriage, a Separation for ever: The false Education of young Ladies the Cause of it. Christian Behaviour, much out of fashion: Quadrille and Ombre, obtain'd their Freedom of the City of London. All Men running mad and bewitched, and pursuing their own Destruction
