To all devout Chriftians. D E pleased to observe, that the preference, which

D the truly pious and judicious have given to this: · New Week's Preparation, has lately tempted several

Booksellers to reprint Keble's OLD Week's Preparation, with an Engraved Title-page, and a new Print before it, so as to make that Old Book somewhat resemble this New Week's Preparation to the eye of the purchaser: and therefore the public are desired to be careful, that they have not that Old Book imposed upon them for the future, instead of this New Week's Preparation, which is published by the King's Authority, and is, by Afflignment from the Executors of the late Mr. Wicksteed; printed ONLY for John Hinton, at the King's Arms, in Paternofter Row, near Warwick Lane, LONDON.

Beware also of a Book intitled, The New Week's Prepara. tion for tbe wortby receiving of the Lord's Supper, IMPROVED, &c. (pretended to be printed at GLASGOW, LONDON, and several other Places) which for some Time past has been sold in and about MANCHESTER, and has been published, as it is presumed, with the same lucrative Viewus, as that above mentioned,
