It is now twenty-one years since - Psalms and Hymns first published, and offered to the Churches of our Denomination. It has long been a favourite book amongst our people, as is evident from the fact that during that period some Eight HUNDRED THOUSAND COPIES have been sold; and, further, that out of the profits arising from the sale of the book a sum exceeding Eight Thousand Pounds has been given to the Widows of Deceased Baptist Ministers.
