The volume is committed to the care of the Christian public, with the prayer, that the humble services of its deceased author, may redound to the glory of God, and become, under his blessing, profitable to the souls of men.

The Editor ventures to add, in conclusion, that the texts of scripture in the Title Page, have been inserted in compliance with the Author's directions, as contained in the following note discovered in his diary.

ST. LUKE iv. 16-22.

And he came to Nazareth where he had been brought
up; and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue
on the sabbath-day, and stood up for to read.

And there was delivered unto him the book of the
prophet Esaias: and when he had opened the book, he

found the place where it was written,

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath
anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent
me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the
captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at
liberty them that are bruised,

To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

And he closed the book, and gave it again to the
minister, and sat down; and the eyes of all them that
were in the synagogue, were fastened on him.

And he began to say unto them, this day is this
scripture fulfilled in your ears.

And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gra-
cious words which proceeded out of his mouth.
