AND SOLD BY HIM AT THE
CHRISTOPHER WORDSWORTH, D.D. .
MASTER OF TRINITY COLLEGE,
THE FOLLOWING DISSERTATION
WITH SENTIMENTS OF THE DEEPEST RESPECT,
CLAUSES from the WILL of the Rev. JOHN
HULSE, late of Elworth, in the County of Chester, clerk, deceased : dated the twenty-first day of July, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven ; expressed in the words of the Testator, as he, in order to prevent mistakes, thought proper to draw and write the same himself, and directed that such clauses should every year be printed, to the intent that the several persons, whom it might concern and be of service to, might know that there were such special donations or endowments left for the encouragement of Piety and Learning, in an age so unfortunately addicted to Infidelity and Luxury, and that others might be invited to the like charitable, and, as he humbly hoped, seasonable and useful Benefactions.
He directs that certain rents and profits (now amounting to about a hundred pounds yearly,) be paid to such learned and ingenious person, in the University of Cambridge, under the degree of Master of Arts, as shall compose, for that year, the best Dissertation, in the English language, on the Evidences in general, or on the Prophecies or Miracles in particular, or any other particular Argument, whether the same be direct or collateral proofs of the Christian Religion, in order to evince its truth and excellence ; the subject of which Dissertation shall be given out by the ViceChancellor, and the Masters of Trinity and Saint John's,
