These sermons are Eleven in number; and to those (particularly of the uninitiated) who have read the elaborate productions of the Abbe Barruel, or the minor publication of Professor Robinson, intended to bring into disrepute the meetings of the Fraternity, we, from a sentiment of candour, and even a sense of justice recommend the careful perusal of Mr. Inwood's Masonic Sermons...

When Thomas Winnington died Horace Walpole described him as; "...one of the first men in England, from his parts and from his employment’ who had ‘left nobody equal to him, as before nobody was superior to him except my father". In 1752 he wrote of Winnington in his memoirs: "His jolly way of laughing at his own want of principles had revolted all the graver sort ... He had infinitely more wit than any man I ever knew, and it was as ready and quick as it was constant and unmeditated. His style was a little brutal; his courage not at all so; his good-humour inexhaustible: it was impossible to hate or to trust him..." - See History of Parliament *** "Robert Simson (14 October 1687 – 1 October 1768) was a Scottish mathematician and professor of mathematics at the University of Glasgow. The pedal line of a triangle is sometimes called the "Simson line" after him.... In 1756, appeared, both in Latin and in English, the first edition of his Euclid's Elements. This work, which contained only the first six and the eleventh and twelfth books, and to which, in its English version, he added the Data in 1762, was for long the standard text of Euclid in England." - See Wikipedia . **** Full title reads: " Elements of Euclid VIZ.
