THE SECOND EDITION.
THE Tracts which are contained in this volume, had been out of print for some years before the death of their venerable Author. It is to be lamented that he had not put in execution the design of republishing them, which, for some months, he had entertained; as valuable additions might have been expected from his practised pen. In the present publication of them, the Editor, after mature reflection, has deemed it best, to reprint, without deviation and without comment, the edition of 1817. His various avocations, and his unexpected absence, for several weeks, from the
press from which they issue, have prevented his making such occasional literal corrections as were necessary in a text, which was not originally printed with accuracy. Should the volume, as is confidently expected from the great anxiety which is expressed for its appearance by all Protestant Christians, pass to another edition, the opportunity will be embraced for making
such improvements, and furnishing such accompaniments, as may be found desirable. Meanwhile, the Editor confidently commends the Tracts of Dr. WHARTon, to the inquiring and intelligent of every Christian name, as admirable for their scriptural authority, their extent of research, acuteness in argument, and elegance of style, and unsurpassed in Christian tone and temper.
