The printer, who has published this pamphlet at his own risk, agreed to do it, on condition that the Subscribers would previously peruse it, and engage to give their recommendation of it to the public.

They are persuaded that it is well calculated to render every porson, who seriously and candidly reads it, both a better Christian and a better Citizen; and therefore they sincerely wish that it may have an extensive circulation,
