THE following selections from the Lectures of the late Dr. Punshon are printed in the same order as that in which the Lectures were first published, so far as that order is known. Two of them, “ The Men of the Mayflower,” and “Science, Literature, and Religion,” are now printed for the first time. be well to remind the reader that the lecture on
Science, Literature, and Religion” was prepared more than thirty years ago, while Dr. Punshon was still a Probationer for the Ministry. Necessarily, therefore, it here and there looks at the relative positions of the subjects compared from a point of view determined more by the state of questions at that time than at the present. The immense circulation which, as separately published, most of these Lectures have already had, is a guarantee that in this collective form they will possess a lasting interest.
