Rev. Dr. Emmons'," The Rev. E. Smith read to me, some time ago, his Treatise on the Character of Jesus Christ, and on the Trinity. I much approved of his sentiments ; and am very desirous that his piece should be published ; because I think it is ably executed, and directly calculated to refute some dangerous errors, which are at the present day industriously propagated.

Rev. Dr. Griffin's.-"I have had the pleasure of hearing the Rev. E. Smith read a considerable part of his Treatise on the Character of Jesus Christ, and on the Trinity; and am one of those, who have urged him to lay this work before the public. In my opinion it is the most ample, consistent and satisfactory exhibition of the Filiation of Christ, that I have seen. The author has evinced an extensive acquaintance with the holy scriptures, and indefatigable industry in collecting their testimony. In this age of error, I cannot but think that the publication of this work may be of essential service to the cause of truth ; and do heartily wish it a general circulation, and the most distinguished success.
