was particularly and deeply interested in some one great subject, it was clearly my duty, regardless of the censures of any clique or party or set of men, to let his views upon that subject appear. To have acted otherwise would have been alike cowardly and dishonest; and rather than be guilty of such treachery to any writer, I would that another edition of my work should never see the light.
In conclusion, I would only remark that I can wish no greater favor shown to this work than has been extended to its predecessor. Errors in judgment and taste may doubtless be pointed out, and most happy shall I be, before the work is put into a permanent form, to receive, from any quarter, any suggestions that may correct them. But, as I have before said, I have honestly endeavored to do my authors justice; and, having made my book for no classes or sects, for no particular latitudes, and for no special market, but to promote the cause of sound learning and education in harmony with
pure Christian morals, the best interests of humanity, and the cause of universal truth, I now commit it to the judgment of an intelligent public.
