THE “ Historical Catechism," was prepared by Dr. Isaac Watts. In this edition, a few ques. tions and answers are omitted, some expressions are altered, and a small number of articles are added.

The “ Elements of Religion and Morality," were first published in New England, with the initials only of the editors' names, and on ac. count of their plainness are peculiarly fit for the use of younger children. All will agree, that “ such Catechisms must be best for them, which they can best understand, supposing that all the articles of religion necessary for children are contained in them.”

It is hoped, that the variety here offered will prove a useful contribution of materials for the . religious instruction of children and youth, par. ticularly in Evangelical Lutheran churches.

Philadelphia, January 23, 1816.
