[TO THE EDITOR OF THE " SPECTATOR.1 was naturally gratified to read the extract on the Trinity which you gave from Lord Amberley's " Analysis of Religious Belief," and characterised as the most interesting in the book, but I think, if you will refer to my "Thoughts for the Times, " sec. 74, and my " Speech in Season, " sec. 122, you will see that the thoughts you praise and the very order of them are not Lord Amberley's, but mine. However, it little matters, and I dareaay that the late amiable nobleman was not conscious of following so closely without acknowledgment what sounds to me very like my own printed sermons.—I am, Sir, &c., 16 Welbeck Street, Cavendish. Square, W. H. R. HAWEIS.
