IT is now more than two months since the substance of the following pages was delivered from the pulpit, the Author having been exercised with personal affliction, and a very painful dispensation in his family; the death of one dear daughter, and two other children apparently brought to the gates ef death: during which time, he has had peculiar reason to admire the goodness and faithfulness of a covenant God, which he desires to record with gratitude; as alft the kind and affectionate attention of many dear Christian friends, during the painful visitation. Being through rich mercy in measure recovered, he has seriously reviewed the subject, and is satisfied that the fent'unents advanced are agree- . able to the. Word of God; and as such he commits them to the divine blessing. There are many faithful ministers of Jesus Christ, from whom he conscientiously differs, for whom he feels the most cordial ejleem, and with whom he desires to cultivate real friend/hip; and he breathes the language of his heart, when he adds—Grace, Mercy, and Peace be multiplied toward all those ivho love our Lordsesus Christ insincerity.
