N O T E .
For the preservation of the first of the following discourses, which was
delivered extemporaneously, I am almost wholly indebted to the notes of
the Reporter. Neither this, nor that which follows it, was prepared with any reference
to its publication through the press. But as a desire for such publication
has been expressed by those who heard the sermons, I am happy to have
it gratified,—particularly as it gives me the opportunity to put on record,
in this permanent form, my most grateful and affectionate regard for the
Church and Congregation to which it has so long been my privilege to min
ister, in the hope and service of the Gospel.
