EPISTLES TO THE CORINTHIANS:
ATTEMPT TO CONVEY THEIR SPIRIT
BY JOHN HAMILTON THOM.
REPRINTED FROM THE ENGLISH EDITION.
111 WASHINGTON STREET.
THE REVEREND JAMES MARTINEAU.
MY DEAR FRIEND, —
Had I the hope of producing a Work more worthy your acceptance, I might postpone the gratification of joining your name with mine
page. As it is, I at least take the first opportunity of offering you this expression of gratitude and friendship ; and in making even this book my tribute to you, I try to feel that there is some fitness, — perhaps I should rather say that I am enabled to do so with the more courage,
inasmuch as, among living men, I know no one who will receive with readier welcome, or view with more generous indulgence, the humblest Work that aims to exhibit spiritual Christianity, as God's provision for the deep and glorifying Wants, that arise out of the inherent relig. iousness of Human Nature.
JOHN HAMILTON THOM.
OAKFIELD, LIVERPOOL, April 14th, 1851.
