"We are glad to see these miscellanies republished, and think all who read them will enjoy their spirit even when they disagree with their doctrines. The tone of earnest conviction, the glow of feeling, the occasional beauty of expression in these pages, is very refreshing.—Merchants' Magazine.

"The essays are written in a style which combines the plainness of COBBETT with just the slightest sprinkling of modern literary Euphuism; a combination less unattractive than might at the first blush be inferred from such a coalition."-Knickerbocker.

An Offering of Sympathy to the Afflicted: Especially to Parents bereaved of their Children. Being a collection from Manuscripts never before published. With an Appendix of Extracts. By Francis Parkman. Third Edition. 18mo.

"Though small, it is rich in comfort and instruction. Prepared by the editor in a season of peculiar personal affliction, it contains many of his own thoughts, with the judicious selections which he made from books from which he drew consolation, besides the original articles which at his request were furnished by his brethren in the ministry. In the present edition not only is the Appendix of Extracts - enlarged, but an original article is given not found in the former editions.”—Monthly Miscellany.

"We are not surprised that Dr. Parkman's excellent little volume has reached a third edition. It has carried comfort to many a heart. We wish it well on its errand of peace."-Christian Examiner.

"A volume deserving a cordial welcome to every house and heart. The variety of thought and expression, and yet the perfect harmony of tone of feeling which marks this spiritual wreath for a Christian cemetery, will make it live and bloom as long as sorrow is known."-Hunt's Magazine.

TO THE

CONGREGATION

WORSHIPPING IN THE FIRST INDEPENDENT CHURCH OF

BALTIMORE:

SINCE the commencement of our connection you must be aware, that I have abstained almost entirely from the introduction of subjects of a purely controversial nature into the public instructions accompanying our social worship. It has been my first object to promote in you the great end of religion, a pure heart and a pure life, rather than to make you able advocates of sectarian peculiarities. The Lectures, to which you have been listening the past winter, are a deviation from this course. They were designed to meet the wants of the rising generation, who justly demand to know the reason of the faith of their fathers. To demonstrate to them that this faith is the religion of the New Testament, and not as it is represented "another Gospel;" that it is a sure foundation of hope, and a sufficient guide of life, was the object of those discourses. For the same purpose and in compliance with your desire, they are now given to you through the press.

That they may contribute something to "stablish, strengthen and settle you," to give you "all joy and peace in believing," is the humble wish and prayer

Of your friend and pastor,

JUNE, 1835.

G. W. BURNAP.
