ADDRESS.

SOLDIERS,

THE Contents of this volume were
written by men who take a deep interest in
your temporal and spiritual welfare. They
know from experience the temptations pecu-
liarly incident to your profession, and the sins
which easily beset you but they know also
the safeguards and encouragements which are
afforded by the service of which you are mem-
bers, to shield you from the attacks of the
world, the flesh, and the devil, and to cheer
you on the way which leads to everlasting life.
The education which your Queen and country
so liberally provide for your benefit will, if you
take advantage of it, benefit you intellectually,
morally, and spiritually. The religious ser-
vices which it is actually part of your military
duty to attend regularly will, if you heartily
join in them, give you grace and strength to
fight manfully under Christ's banner, and to

continue His faithful soldiers and servants unto your life's end. The lessons contained in the Holy Scriptures, which are supplied to all of you, illustrated by the examples of God's saints and servants, of whom you read therein, will teach you how to follow the example of the great Captain of your salvation, and to be made like unto Him. The sacrament of the Lord's Supper, which you are frequently invited to partake of, will strengthen and refresh your souls, and be to you a continual memorial of your Saviour's death, to your great and endless comfort.

It is hoped that these short treatises, written expressly for your use, may by the blessing of Almighty God tend to awaken the sinner, to settle the waverer, and to confirm the faithful follower of Christ in the course which he has chosen. May God of His infinite mercy grant, for the sake of His beloved Son, that when this life's warfare is over you may enjoy everlasting peace, and obtain that crown of glory which fadeth not away.

R. W. B.
