Excerpt from An Appeal to Matter of Fact and Common Sense: Or a Rational Demonstration of Man's Corrupt and Lost Estate OF all the writers who have taken part in the great conflict of ages on the question of human depravity, none have excelled John Fletcher in plainness and sim plicity of style and force of argument. His Appeal to Matter of Fact has never been answered. Thous ands have been rescued by it from the various labyrinths of the Pelagian heresy and led to embrace the doctrine of man's native depravity. This little volume has been in circulation for nearly a' century, and it is as popular now as when it was first presented to the public. It is one of the few productions which, like Paradise Lost and Pilgrim's Progress is destined to live and exert a powerful\ influence long after. The immediate causes which gave rise to it have been forgotten.
