Entered according to the Act of Congress, in the year 1839, by E. FRENCH, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the Southern District of New-York.
TO THE AMERICAN EDITION.
BELIEVING the following Sermons would be read with interest and profit, as well from the excellent spirit by which they are pervaded, as from the truth and importance of the leading views, to the support of which they are devoted, I gave a copy of them to the worthy publisher by whom they are put out in this country. At his suggestion, in order to make a more sizeable book, I have added a few pieces of my own, which, in their principles and spirit, will not, I hope, be thought unsuitable to accompany the discourses of Professor Whewell. It is proper to observe, that one of these pieces-that on the Moral Requisites for the Knowledge of Divine Things
is the main part of an article published a few years ago in the Literary and Theological Review.
New-York, February, 1839.
