The publication of the Sermons, which were passing through the press at the time of their lamented author's decease, has given rise to the brief record of his life and character prefixed to them. An intimate knowledge of his various manuscripts, domestic habits, and parochial labours, was a privilege long enjoyed by the writer, as his daughter, secretary, and frequent amanuensis. This tribute to her father's memory has been called for by the affection of his friends, into whose hands it is committed, not without much apprehension of its unworthiness. She has only to add the expression of her earnest desire, that the volumes may be attended with the blessing, and thus be rendered subservient to the glory, of the most high God.
