THE first fourteen of the following Lectures, were addressed to the Students of Codrington College, in the Island of Barbados, on the several Sundays, immediately after the opening of the Institution, in the year 1830. The two opening Lectures, were delivered as Introductory: the concluding one, on resigning the situation.
The Author having been compelled from ill health in the year 1835, to relinquish the superintendence of that most interesting charge, feels thankful, on reflecting that there are now twenty-five Clergymen, in different parts of the Diocese of Barbados, and the Leeward Islands, who were prepared for entering Holy Orders, in connexion with this College. He now ventures to put
forth these Exhortations on the Ministerial character, with humble prayer, that, while received among his former pupils, as a token of affectionate remembrance, they may be blessed, in other portions of the Church, to the good of those who are looking forward to the sacred calling.
It may tend to the explanation of some passages, to remark, that in addition to the Students, the Congregation consisted of the families of the Professors, and the domestics of the College.
Lambeth, Feb. 1837.
