“ These things write we unto you, that your joy may be full."-1 John i. 4.
PRINTED FOR WAUGH AND INNES;
M. OGLE, GLASGOW; AND JAMES DUNCAN, LONDON.
The same reasons may be given for the publication of this Volume, which were given for that of the former. As the Letters in both were occasioned by the particular circumstances and inquiries of the individuals to whom they were addressed, they were not written according to any principle of arrangement. This will account for their miscellaneous nature, and their particular structure. The object of the writer was not to enter at large into the subjects introduced, but to give such views of their scriptural import, as, in the circumstances of those to whom he was writing, seemed best to exhibit their practical and consolatory bearings. He commends the work to the blessing of God, and to the candid reception of the friends of truth.
