THE lamented author whose literary remains are here imbodied neither designed nor prepared his writings for publication. They appear from the press in compliance with the wishes of those who received the word of life from his lips during the brief period of his ministry; and in the fulfilment of what the editor has felt to be a sacred duty devolving on him since the decease of his beloved brother. It is difficult, as must be evident to the reader, to prepare for publication the manuscripts of one who is no more; and whatever may be the care bestowed on a posthumous work, it must appear with imperfections. In the selection and preparation of the sermons and other writings which constitute the present volume, the editor has laboured under an almost painful sense of his responsibility—under the pressure of feeble health and afflictive circumstances; he has done the best he could, and now submits the work in the
humble expectation that, with the blessing of God, it will prove not to have been labour in vain.
For valuable assistance in the revision of the following pages, the editor is indebted to the kindness of his esteemed friend, the Rev. Edward Otheman.
