whilst their right use tends to promote holiness in heart and in life, to secure domestic and public order, loyalty and confidence, prosperity and peace.

Such an exhibition of the power of God's holy Word as these pages contain, appears to be most seasonable. The glory of our country, and of the churches of Christ therein established, lies chiefly in this, that unto them are committed the oracles of God; but should the aggressive powers of darkness by which we are now assailed obtain a footing amongst us, and succeed in closing or perverting the Bible, from that moment, crime, lawlessness, and slavery will prevail. The mighty stream of testimony to the power of written and inspired truth has been flowing down through the history of the world to the present time, when ONE COUNTRY, namely, GREAT BRITAIN, stands pre-eminent among the nations as having been, through the mercy of God, preserved from revolution, anarchy, and bloodshed, and THAT COUNTRY IS THE ONE WHICH IS ESPECIALLY DISTINGUISHED BY THE FULL POSSESSION OF AN OPEN BIBLE!

Most earnestly would we pray that the devout and patriotic wish of his late Majesty GEORGE THE THIRD may be fully realised, namely, that every subject in this mighty Empire may be in possession of a Bible -an OPEN BIBLE, and be found able with facility to read it. The Lord, in his abundant mercy, grant this; and to his great and glorious name be all the praise !
