THE INTRODUCTION.
CHAP. I. Wherein the Case is briefly stated, and all those Texts of Scripture alledged which relate to it: Toge∣ther with the Arguments and In∣ferences which result from them.
CHAP. II. Wherein are manifested the great Mischiefs which Mothers by trans∣ferring the Nursing of their Chil∣dren to other Women, threaten their Families with; both in point of Succession, and that Mutual Affection which ought to be a∣mong the several Branches of it.
CHAP. III. In which is contained an account of the Inconveniencies resulting to the Children themselves that are Nursed by Strangers, in re∣spect of their Bodies, either through the Nurses want of Care, the unsuitable Nourishment, or Contagious Diseases that may be transmitted in her Milk.
CHAP. IV. Wherein are shewed the Mischiefs which may be propagated from Mercenary Nurses to the Minds of Children.
CHAP. V. In which are mentioned the Com∣mon Plea's for Nursing Children abroad: Together with the Insuf∣ficiency of them, and the true Causes thereof are represented.
The Conclusion. Wherein a Pathetick Address is made to all, both Fathers and Mothers, that they will admit the preceding Particulars into their Serious and Impartial Consideration.
