After the ample recommendation by the Author's near relation, and two other re-, spectable clergymen, contained in the preceding pages, it will be necessary only farther to add, that these Discourses have been faithfully transcribed from the originals in the Author's hand-writing, and correctly printed from them. It is not doubted but that these volumes will be highly acceptable to the religious of all denominations, who, we trust, will unite with the Editor and Publishers, in sincere and fervent prayers, that, through the divine blessing, they may be extensively useful.
