TO THE

SECOND EDITION.

The following tract was first published in the year 1830, and has long been out of print. I suffered it to remain so under an impression that it had been superseded by larger and more elaborate works on the same subject; especially those of my learned friend Dr. Todd of Dublin. But, finding that it has been recently enquired for, two reasons induce me to reprint it.

First, the knowledge that some persons will look at a small pamphlet on such a subject, who would not set about reading a large and learned volume.

Secondly, an apprehension that my suffering the work, small as it is, to remain out of print while there was any enquiry for it, might look as if I had either changed my opinions, or wished to conceal them.

I have reprinted from the British Magazine for July, 1848, some remarks on the publications of Mr. Frere, because I consider them not only as illustrative of the subject generally, but (so far as I can judge from notices and advertisements) seasonable for these times in particular.
