SANCTION OF THE MINISTERS
WHOSE DISCOURSES APPEAR IN ITS PAGES.
FREDERICK WESTLEY AND A. H. DAVIS,
M DCCC XXXI.
PREACHER affords the
THE Completion of the First Volume of THE BRITISH Publishers an opportunity of tendering their thanks for the patronage with which
their attempt has been favoured.
Avowing, at the outset, their determination to admit nothing which could give offence to any class of Christians, they have obtained the aid of Ministers of various denominations, whose doctrinal sentiments are in accordance with those of the Reformation. Their object is still the
same, to supply for Family, and Private Reading, Discourses which may be useful beyond the bounds of the preacher's own immediate influence.
The Publishers have to acknowledge the kindness and promptitude with which their applications to Ministers have been uniformly met; and they appeal with confidence to the pages of this Volume, as a proof that they have endeavoured to fulfil their engagements.
To the Public they are indebted for the warm and increasing support which this attempt has received; and they pledge themselves to renewed exertions, that they may render the Work the best of its class. They flatter themselves that its avowed principles will procure for it the recommendation of Ministers, and that the excellence of its contents will render it more acceptable to the reader, than the sketchy, and often incorrect, Reports which are presented by other publications.
