Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1847 edition. Excerpt: ...fore-cited, is the allusion made unto the blood of Abel, and the cry thereof; and he illustrates the cry of Christ's blood for us, by the cry of that blood of Abel against Cain--it speaks better things than the blood of Abel.
