RECOMMENDATION.

“HAving seen the plan, and a part of the execution, of

a book on Family Religion, about to be published by the

Rev. William Cogswell of Dedham, we the undersigned,
would express our cordial approbation of the same. It
is on a subject vitally important to the interests of the
Redeemer’s kingdom; and which claims the serious and
earnest attention of the Christian Community. The plan
and execution of the work, so far as we have attended
to them, appear to be judicious, and well calculated to
accomplish the end in view. The work we think will
be very useful, and highly deserving the attention of in-
dividuals and families. We earnestly hope, that the
publication may meet with liberal patronage, and be
accompanied with the Divine blessing.”
.April, 1826.

The above recommendation is signed by the following gentlemen, Rev. Dr. Holmes, Cambridge, Rev. Dr. Kellogg, Framingham, Rev. Dr. Park, Providence, Rev. Dr. Jenks, Boston, Rev. Dr. Codman, Dorchester, Rev. Mr. Fisk, Wrentham, Rev. Mr. Wisner, Boston, Rev. Mr. Emerson, Salem, Rev. Mr. Fay, Charlestown, Rev. Mr. Curtis, Sharon, Rev. Mr. Ide, Medway, Rev.
