ADVERTISEMENT, To Subscribers, an:l to the Members of the Presbyterian

Church..

The publication of the following Letters, has been delayed sometime beyond the period contemplated. The author was fully aware of the serious responsibility attached to the publication of his views, which some consider new, and of very injurious tendency to the Church, which God has purchased with his own flood. He has now heard the main subject partially investigated in a session, and presbytery and his general and more peculiar views discussed in the Synod of Kentucky; and no books have been neglected that were within his reach, which could afford any aid, in the examination of the important subject. It is impossible to say how the author may hereafter be treated, or his sentiments canvassed; but nothing has yet taught him to expect, a calm, scriptural REFUTATION. If such a thing, however, should appear, he will be thankful for it. Replies—personal remarks-dogmatical assertions, impeaching of motives, &c. he. has experienced in some measure, but these things cannot destroy FACTS-or make the word of God of none effect-cannot in the present day screen error, or refute sound arguments. The publication is now made under the deliberate and mature conviction that the cause of TRUTH requires it, and that it may profit the Church of God,

Paris, Ky. March, 1828.
