CONSTITUTION, FAITH, AND PRACTICE OF THE
ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM :"
VOL. XIII.-NEW SERIES,
THE season has again returned in which our Printer reminds us that an “Index” and a "Preface" are required. The latter, it falls within the range of our duties to supply. We shall fill it neither with apologies for our editorial inefficiency, nor with murmurings at the little help (beyond mere words of encouragement) which we are accustomed to obtain from brethren who profess to hold dear the sentiments which we advocate. We have done the best that a scanty supply of materials, and an equally scanty measure of spare time to devote to the work, have enabled us to do.
The “Essays” and “ Expositions” we have inserted we believed to be (for the most part) of considerable importance and excellence, doing credit alike to the heads and hearts of the writers, and fitted, in no small degree, by the Holy Spirit’s blessing, to promote sound, scriptural principles.
The “Choice Sayings” and “Poetry” we have been at great pains to collect from unexceptionable sources. We believe this department to be always acceptable to those who have little time for reading lengthy articles, and yet a keen appetite for spiritual things,
The “Reviews” have unavoidably been neglected of late, owing to the lamented cessation of our brother Stock's kind assistance. We beg hereby to tender him our public thanks for the valuable help he, for some time, furnisbed.
