“For effecting a recovery and re-establishment of the long-lost truth.”
SIR ISAAC Newton.
“One Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, one God and Father of all.”
JANUARY to DECEMBER, 1837
G. SMALLFIELD AND SON, 69, NEWGATE STREET.
The Editor of the UNITARIAN BAPTIST ADVOCATE returns to his readers and supporters his best acknowledgements for the encouragement which he has received during the past year. He ventures to hope that his labours may, in some small degree, have promoted in their minds an attachment to scriptural truth, however unpopular it may be; and in particular, that the ADVOCATE may have been found seasonable, and instructive in that section of the Christian Church to which the Editor himself belongs; though it is by no means his wish or expectation that its circulation should be confined to any one communion. The Editor avails himself of this opportunity, to inform his friends, that increased pecuniary support will be necessary to indemnify those who have undertaken to share the responsibility of publication; and ventures to persuade himself, that this will not be withheld. From the abundant literary materials which have, at different times, been placed at the Editor's disposal, he may safely promise a succession of instructive and pleasing articles on the sentiments and exertions of former labourers in the Christian vineyard. But he, at the same time, respectfully solicits from his former Correspondents the usual communication of Intelligence, to which the passing events may pected to give rise, and of such other matter as the inquiries and studies of his readers may suggest.
London, 27th November, 1837.
