Side 22 - ... acquainted with persons of all principles and characters. One day I remember I dined in company with an eminent popish priest; the evening I spent with philosophers, determined unbelievers ; the next morning I breakfasted at his own request, with a most zealously orthodox clergyman, Mr. Toplady, and the rest of that day I spent with Dr. Jebb, Mr. Lindsey, and some others, men in all respects after my own heart.
