such a Work was much wanted, he ventured upon its publication, trusting, both for supply and demand, to the wants and good feeling of the Church.

The Publisher has been anxious to give as much variety to the contents of the volume as circumstances would allow,—only one re-printed sermon having been introduced, which is the production of one of the Ministers of the New Church in America, and can be but little known here and this must be his excuse with those friends who have favoured him with several sermons, for the appearance of comparatively but few of them.

The Publisher has pleasure in acknowledging that the demand has exceeded his anticipation; and he now returns his sincere thanks to those Ministers, and others, who have furnished him with Sermons for the purpose. If it be still acceptable to the Church, and an adequate supply of matter can be procured, he will with pleasure proceed with another, or other volumes.
