ART. I.-A PURITAN'S APOLOGY FOR HIS MILLENARIANISM.*

If what I have said in my epistle to the former part had sufficed, I had not troubled thee with this; but that there is one particular, an account of which I judge it requisite to give unto thee, and that is concerning my opinion with reference to the thousand years. For, having wholly passed it by in my Discourse (albeit my point seemed to lead me to it), it may be thou wilt desire (and I think it meet to give thee) some satisfaction therein.

It hath been often whispered by many. (whose weakness I can well pass by) as if I had held some monstrum horrendum, some strange and dangerous opinion about the thousand years, and that I did secretly infuse it to the people, though I did wave it and pass it by in public. I can freely say, I have been sparing to discourse, and altogether silent as to an infusing my thoughts about these things into any. And I shall do more in this short epistle, in discovering my mind in this point, than as yet (to my remembrance) I have ever done to any person in all

my life.

* The following epistle, giving a “brief account of the author's opinion about the thousand years,” was written by “that eminent servant of God, Mr John Durant, preacher of the gospel in Christ Church, Canterbury ;” it is prefixed to the second part of his work entitled, “The Salvation of the Saints, by the Appearance of Christ: I. Now in Heaven--II. Hereafter from Heaven,” which was published in London, in the year 1653.
