AND ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF HIS MAJESTY'S COUNCIL.
PRINTED FOR C. & J. RIVINGTON,
ST. PAUL'S CHURCH-YARD,
LORD BISHOP OF NOVA SCOTIA.
The following discourses, which I have
presumed to dedicate to your Lordship, have been preached on various occasions within the Diocese of Nova Scotia ; and some of them which have been delivered before the Bermuda District Committee of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, have had the good fortune to elicit considerable liberality, in aid of the Society, from the inhabitants of this Colony.
Although I have not the vanity to hope that this Volume will serve to justify the
patronage which your Lordship has, on the purest motives, extended to a Clergyman known to you only through the exercise of his profession ; yet, my Lord, I trust it may be considered the humble instrument of expressing to your Lordship the earnestness of my gratitude, and of evincing to the public my sincere desire to merit a promotion which has been so generously and disinterestedly conferred.
