The Chronology Of Ancient Kingdoms Amended        To Which Is Prefix'D,  A Short Chronicle From The First        Memory
_As I Could Never Hope To Write Any Thing My Self, Worthy To Be Laid Before
Your Majesty; I Think It A Very Great Happiness, That It Should Be My Lot
To Usher Into The World, Under Your Sacred Name, The Last Work Of As Great
A Genius As Any Age Ever Produced: An Offering Of Such Value In Its Self,
As To Be In No Danger Of Suffering From The Meanness Of The Hand That
Presents It._

_The Impartial And Universal Encouragement Which Your Majesty Has Always
Given To Arts And Sciences, Entitles You To The Best Returns The Learned
World Is Able To Make: And The Many Extraordinary Honours Your Majesty
Vouchsafed The Author Of The Following Sheets, Give You A Just Right To His
Productions. These, Above The Rest, Lay The Most Particular Claim To Your
Royal Protection; For The _Chronology_ Had Never Appeared In Its Present
Form Without Your Majesty's Influence; And The _Short Chronicle_, Which
Precedes It, Is Entirely Owing To The Commands With Which You Were Pleased
To Honour Him, Out Of Your Singular Care For The Education Of The Royal
Issue, And Earnest Desire To Form Their Minds Betimes, And Lead Them Early
Into The Knowledge Of Truth.
