DAILY DUTIES, inculcated in a Series of Letters, addressed to the Wife of a Clergyman. By Mrs. Adams, Author of Parlor Lectures, &c. &c.

IF This volume will doubtless be hailed with satisfaction by those who occupy a similar station to the individuals particularly addressed. It will also be taken up with interest by those who are anticipating the untried, and to them almost unknown duties, of a Pastor's wife. We are happy after an examination of its pages to say, we apprehend that neither the one, or the other, will be disappointed in the perusal. We hope every minister's wife will be able to possess so valuable a directory in her Daily Drties, as we are sure it will not be without a happy influence on every sincere inquirer. We further hope, that the circulation of this book will not be restricted by its locality of title, to either of the classes which have been adverted to. - Newburyport Register.

DWe have had repealed occasion to acknowledge the satisfaction and instruction, for which we have been indebted to former publications of Mrs. Adams. We greet this new volume as another most useful labor, des. tined to have an important influence in promoting “whatsoever things are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and of good report,” in the families of clergymen.- Portland Christian Mirror.

TO THE

REV. J. PYE SMITH, D. D.

THEOLOGICAL

TUTOR IN THE OLD COLLEGE, HOMERTON.

Ganges-ni-8

DEAR SIR,-I count myself happy in having this opportunity, of publicly testifying the high esteem and veneration in which I hold your character as a valued Friend, and a distinguished Theologian.

It is among the goodliest allotments of my heritage, that I was placed under your theological instructions, and introduced into the circle of your friendship.

As my attendance on your Divinity Lectures, and my perusal of your polemical writings, have had no small share in directing and forming my mind to the study of the Christian Propitiation, I feel bound, in affection and duty, to present to you the first cluster that has ripened under your training.

God has raised you to a high elevation in English theology. In that eminent position, may God long preserve you, the amiable expounder, and the able defender, of the SACRIFICE and the TESTIMONY of Christ.

Accept of this volume as an expression of the deep and sincere affection with which

I am your attached Friend,
And obedient Servant,

T. W. JENKYN.
Oswestry, Nov. 5, 1833.
