THE FOLLOWING PAGES,

PREPARED FOR

THE USE OF MY CONGREGATION,

ARE INSCRIBED

WITH REGARD AND GRATITUDE

TO

MY VALUED FRIEND,

W. T. GAIRDNER, M.D.,

PROFESSOR OF THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE IN THE UNIVERSITY

OF GLASGOW.

PREFATORY NOTE.

BEING for the present prevented by ill health from the discharge of my usual duties, but being allowed by my medical advisers to spend an hour or two daily at my desk, I have been anxious to do something for the good of my Congregation and Parish. Accordingly, I have prepared the following pages, which, I know, my Congregation will not be unwilling to consider a gift, when I tell them that any profit which may arise from the sale of the present issue will be applied to the support of our Parish Missions. Through the kindness of the Publishers, there will be no deduction, save of necessary expenses.

In selecting matter for this little Volume, I have confined myself to subjects of a practical kind. I have not entered upon questions either of controversy or of speculation, farther than to state my views on the spirit in which they ought to be pursued.

J. R.

ST. ANDREWS, November, 1864.
