The rapid demand for the Memoirs and Writings of Miss Fanny Woodbury, havirg induced the Publishers to undertake the re-printing of them, they have availed themselves of every mean in their power to render this Edition worthy of general circulation. The Memoir has been carefully re-written, and considerable Additions made to it, from a minute examination of her interesting Journal and Correspondence; by which, it is hoped, that her character has been placed, if not in a new, at least in a more attractive and impressive light. To this Edition there are likewise subjoined, An Essay on Christian Usefulness ; An Address to Christians on the Importance of Time and Eternity; and some Reflections on the Fascinating and Deceitful Pleasures of the World ;-all by Miss WOODBURY, and till now unpublished.

The expence thus incurred has not been inconsiderable; but the improvements, as well as the enlargement which the present Edition has received, will, it is trusted, be deemed a sufficient reason for the addition made to its price. The Publishers also flatter themselves, that while it may be useful to all who shall be pleased to give it a serious perusal, it will be peculiarly acceptable to the young, whose best interests the truths which it contains are so highly fitted to promote.

Edinburgh, 1st Jan. 1818.
