IN justice to the author of the following Remains, it is proper to apprize the reader, that, with the exception of some of the juvenile pieces, the MSS. from which this volume has been compiled were found in a rough and unfinished state, and in a style of writing which has rendered some passages perfectly illegible. This circumstance will account, in part, for any want of elegance and accuracy which may be observable in a few places; though, at the same time, it is confident] hoped the volume, as a whole, will not be conside:ed as needing this apology.
The Lectures and Sermons, in particular, are given, not as finished compositions, such as the author himself would have prepared for publication, but merely as specimens of his train of thinking, and of the form in which he was accustomed sometimes to write out his preparations for the pulpit.
