when uncommon zeal is displayed, and unusual means are employed, to sap the foundations of the faith once delivered to the saints, and to rob the Son of God of his glory; we deem it incumbent on those, who stand for the defence of the gospel, as effectually as possible to counteract that zeal, and expose and frustrate those means. As from this part of our duty, though certainly the most painful, we hope never to shrink; so our devout prayer is, that we may ever perform it with such a spirit and in such a manner, as shall entitle us to the continued liberal countenance and support of the christian public. Fully aware, however, that this department of our work, highly important as we deem it, cannot be equally interesting to all our readers; our care will be that it shall not engross too large a share of our attention. The edification, entertainment, and profit of many is the desire of our hearts; and to render the Panoplistand Missionary Magazine as extensively agreeable and useful as we can, shall be our unceasing study. To our numerous Patrons we tender our grateful acknowledgments; together with our fervent wishes for their best improvement and happiness. Our obliging Correspondents, who have contributed to enrich our pages, are entitled to our particular thanks. Still in this way to do good and to communicate, we trust they will not forget. To the Public at large we pledge our most sacred assurances, that pains on our part shall not be wanting to deserve a continued and even increased patronage. We have no private or party interests to subserve; unless the great interests of the Redeemer's kingdom come under this denomination: but a leading and principal object with us is to promote union among christians, under the influence of that wisdom, which is first pure, and then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. If successful in our designs, our reward will be abundant, and our everlasting gratitude will be due to Him, whose divine honors we would vindicate, and to whose glory our labors are most
