PREFACE

DEAR READER : You are aware that knowledge in a great measure, forms the true dignity and happiness of man. It is that by which he holds an honorable rank in the scale of human existence, and by which he is rendered capable of adding to the felicity of his fellow creatures. Hence, every attempt to enlarge its boundaries, and facilitate its acquisitions, must be considered worthy of our attention and regard.

The present work is designed to promote these valuable and important ends. Notwithstanding there may be defects in this publication which have escaped my observation; yet considering the leading features of this work, gleaned from the writings of the celebrated Mr. Wm. DYER of England, and ISAAC Watts, D.D., the source ought to constitute an over whelming argument, and its worth a satisfactory apology for offering it to the public patronage at the present time. It is a

work of that description for which there ever has been, is, and ever will be a constant demand! It has been executed with the single purpose of public utility, hoping to awaken hypocrites, convert sinners, establish Christians and comfort souls. Let this be the effect, and we have fully gained our end in its publication. May the Lord make the perusal of this compilation effectual in accomplishing these valuable purposes on all, into whose hands this work may

chance to fall! It is submitted to the ordeal of public opinion.

S. S. HENDERSON.

My dearest friends, whom I love dearly, remember daily, long for greatly, pray for earnestly, and praiso God heartily, to whom I could write with my purost blood, and do send these lines from my very inward bowels.

Though I cannot say I am so transported with affuc. tion and zeal as Paul, to wish myself accursed from Christ for your sakes; yet I am persuaded I could be content with Jonas to be cast into the sea, for the paci. fying of God's wrath for you ; that I may be free front the blood of all men, I am resolved in the strength, and by the power of God, to deal plainly, and I hope sin. cerely with all men; not valuing the smiles, nor fearing the frowns of wicked men; it is better to lose the smiles of men, than it is to lose the souls of men; tho' there be

many that be enemies to me, yet I am an enemy to none, a hater of no man's person, but a lover of every man's soul : he that loved me when I was an enemy, commanded me to love my enemies Dear Christians,
