THE Christian Worid, for some years past, hath been in possession of manyvaluable writings of the Reverend SaMuel Eyles Pierce. And very sure I am, that the Lord the Spirit hath, in many instances, blessed them to his Church and People.

The present publication on the Pentateuch, by the same Author, carries-with it testimonies of being written under the same divine teaching. And these proofs, which every Reader taught of God will discover, supersede, and render useless every other recommendation. I venture to assume full confidence, that God The Holy Ghost will bless this little volume, wheresoever He shall be pleased to send it, and cause HIS Imprimatur of it to be Written in the heart of His people.
