LONDON : GILBERT & RIVINGTON, PRINTERS,

ST. JOHN'S SQUARE.

ADVERTISEMENT.

Of the following Sermons, the First and Fifth were preached by the Author in Vice-Chancellor's Preaching Turns; the Second in his own; the Third, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth, in his turns as Select Preacher.

The Six which close the Volume, since 1832, were preached on such casual opportunities as the kindness of private friends has afforded him.

Though he has employed himself for the most part in discussing portions of one and the same subject, yet he need scarcely say, that his Volume has not the method, completeness, or scientific exactness in the use of language, which are necessary for a formal Treatise upon it; nor, indeed, was such an undertaking compatible with the nature and circumstances of the composition.

Littlemore, Feb. 4, 1843.

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which

we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and
our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the Life
was manifested, and we have seen It, and bear witness, and
show unto you that Eternal Life, which was with the Father,
and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and
heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship

with us
