By supporting Galileo in his production of his final book explaining the scientific validity of the Copernican sun-centric system thus overthrowing the primacy of the church regarding natural laws and paving the way to a future of epidemiological science that can cure and prevent diseases?

Of great intereft to a divers body of Gentle Readers. An Account of the ways peculiar to the men of Venice of fighting the dread Plague,which may yet both edify and be of amufementto Englifhmen both in the mother country and in the colonies of Virginia, Maffachufettsand others in America.

Publifhed by D. Curtis, Printer of divers reports of the doings of Mankind, from the Virginia colony to the Ends of the Earth,who publifhes them for the edification and amufement of his fellow Englifhmen, and rejects and condemns the Slandersof any pretending to be among his Correfpondents,who might claim to have given a report a more amufing title than the one chofen for the Pamphlet in queftion.
