INDEX.

N. B. The figures in this Index, and those in brackets at the end of many of the
sections in this work, both refer to the number of the sections, or topics, which, to
avoid confusion, is placed on the top of the pages, and correspond with those that occur
upon the pages. The usual paging is placed at the bottom, and will not be used. A
dash between figures, signifies inclusive: for example, 496——8, includes the numbers
496, 497, and 498. An occasional figure in a parenthesis, refers to some specification
under the foregoing numbers, which rarely occurs : for example, 17,(2,) refers to
the second specification under the seventeenth topic, or section. The reader will be
more sure to find the subject desired, by looking for the principal word first — by look-
ing for the noun before the verb, and both noun and verb before the adjective: for
example, for Divine Teaching, look for Teaching, Divine; and for Perfections of God,
look for God's Perfections.
