SEVERAL applications having been made for the Second Volume of the “ Sacred Poetry of the Seventeenth Century,” as also for the “ Sermons” of Bishop Butler, and for Bunyan's
Pilgrim's Progress,” the Subscribers to the Sacred Classics are informed, that these works are preparing for immediate publication, and will appear in the above order.
The Editors and the Proprietor take this opportunity to acknowledge the receipt of many communications during the ast year, suggesting an early issue of various works. They hope their apparent neglect of the suggestions of many valued correspondents will be excused, when they state, that so numerous have been these applications, that it has been found quite impossible to comply with the greater number of them without materially interfering with the original design of their undertaking. The volumes will, for the future, appear on alternate months.
London, Dec. 21st, 1835.
