TO HIMSELF,

ARE INSCRIBED BY

HIS CURATE. .

April, 1847.

ADVERTISEMENT.

MANY reasons, unnecessary to be mentioned, have led to the publication of these Sermons. It is sufficient to particularize the hope, that, whatever salutary impression may have been made in the delivery, it may not only be thus revived, and, by God's blessing, perpetuated; but be spread over a wider sphere. While it will not be denied that many of the “words of warning” have a local origin, it is to be feared that they are very generally applicable to rural districts. May God grant that they shall not have been uttered in vain! It is a fearful text, which such a result suggests :- And the King of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, there is yet one man, &c. (1 Kings xxii. 8.)

W. T.
