"Now I have mentioned this small but inimitable well wrote Book (Xenophon"s "Symposium"], which was recommended to me by Dr [italics] Swift [end italics], and which I in return commend to all such of my fair Readers as have a Taste for real Wit, in which the divine [italics] Socrates [end italics] as conspicuously shone, as he did in Purity of Life and Constancy in Martyrdom; that they peruse it with Care, as it will refine their Ideas and improve their Judgements, polish their Stile, shew them true Beauty, and lead them gently and agreeably to its prime Origin and Source. [LP then quotes from Milton"s "Comus" on beauty] I must here observe in my tracing Authors thro" each other, [italics] Zenophon [end italics] and [italics] Plato [end italics] borrowed from [italics] Socrates [end italics], whose disciples they were. [italics] Zenophon [end italics] acknowledges it as freely as I do the Instructions I received from Dr [italics] Swift [end italics]. Lord [italics] Shaftsbury"s[end italics] Search after Beauty, is copied from [italics] Socrates [end italics]; Mr [italics] Pope"s [end italics] Ethics stolen from both; and the leaned Mr [italics] Hutcheson[end italics]"s Beauty and Harmony, an Imitation of the great Philosophers and excellent Moralists first mentioned".
