Excerpt from Sermons, Lectures, and Essays
Difficult it is for any one to speak of himself, or his own work, the author of this book has but a short Preface to write. The book was written at the suggestion of many friends. If it should appear that their judgment is exceeded by their friendship, he trusts that the reader may not see as many faults as he does himself. We have not al lowed the severity of our taste to have full sway, knowing that many a book has been Spoiled by excessive -nicety and precision. These discourses are not reproductions as de livered, but contain many of the same thoughts.
