  I have long consider'd the gross abuse of astrology in this kingdom,and upon debating the matter with myself,I could not possibly lay the fault upon the art,but upon those gross impostors,who set up to be the artists.I know several learned men have contended that the whole is a cheat;that it is absurd and ridiculous to imagine,the stars can have any influence at all upon human actions,thoughts,or inclinations:And whoever has not bent his studies that way,may be excused for thinking so,when he sees in how wretched a manner that noble art is treated by a few mean illiterate traders between us and the stars;who import a yearly stock of nonsense,lyes,folly,and impertinence,which they offer to the world as genuine from the planets,tho'they descend from no greater a height than their own brains.
