q.
Your chiefefl
Refuge
to
whom
your
hearts
retire
on
all
occafions.

Whether
you
fet
him vp in
your
heàrts
for
the
chiefefl
Commander.
My
Beloved,
if
you
finde
all
this done
by
you, then out
of
doubt, Chrifi
belongs to you;
Theyare
all
feverall, but they
meet in
one
cent
,
and
(erne
together to
make vp
one
rule
oftriall
to you,
to
know
whether
you
haue
tooke
Chrifi
to you or no and I will han
die
them
all
difiinóly
as
I haue named
them
vnto you.
I
Therefore
confider
whether
Chri
fi
be
thy
chiefefi
Excellency;
for it
is
naturali
to
every
man
to
feeke
force excellency or
other. Indeed
beafis,
fo
they
may
haue
that
which
is
necefla-
ry for
the
life
of
nature
&
fervice,
it
is
enough
for thern;and it may
be it
is
enough for
all bru-
tifh
men
,
whofe
foules
are
buried
in
their
bo
-
dyes
that
but
fepulchres
of
men,
in
whom
that
s
of
excellency which
is
rationall,
that
belongs to
a
man,
is
quenched
in
fenfuali-
ty
;
And
thefe
men it
may
be
feeke
no
excel-
lency at all, but
foe
they
may liue
in pleafures,
fo
they
may
haue
that
which
belongs to
their
bodies,
and
to
this
prefent
life
it
is
enough for
them.
But
of
a
man
that bath
any
thing
ofa
man
in
him,
as
he
is
a
man,
fo
a
man
i
fay
con
-
f
dered
in
thefe
higher
parts
of
his
foule,
his
mind
and
his
rvill;
he
feekes
another
excellency
