DEDICATION.

To your Excellencies, viz: ex-Presidents ANDREW JACKSON,

MARTIN VAN BUREN, JOHN TYLER, and Bishops ONDERDONK

and Huges, this work is here very ceremoniously inscribed. It will strike all minds acquainted with this work, and with you, that there are no personages in North America, so worthy of a dedication of a work of this kind, as yourselves. All of you have preached, and harrangued, for many years, to the members of the vast congregation, for which these sermons are designed; and all of you have stoutly professed to wish well to asses.

If I have offended your excellencies, by encroaching upon your employment, it is fit I should beg your pardon, or offer some apology; but as I have often seen your public declarations, that there was plenty of work for you, and hundreds more in that line of business, I trust you will not be offended at receiving a little assistance from one, who means well to every member of each of your congregations.

Cherishing the hope, that you will recommend these sermons to your numerous acquaintances and friends, I am,

Your most humble servant,

THE AUTHOR.
