Γνοϊεν δ', ως δη δώρον εγω πολέμοιο πέπαυμαι.
FIRST AMERICAN, FROM THE FIFTH ENGLISE EDITION.
PR 1191 •L8 1844
The following compositions have been reprinted from the British Magazine, where they had the advantage of originally appearing, in the humble hope that they may be instrumental in recalling or recommending to the reader important Christian truths which are at this day in a way to be forgotten. The publication, having no other object but this, would, according to the original intention, have been strictly anonymous, but one of the writers, in whom the work originated, having been taken from his friends by death, it seemed desirable so far to depart from it, as to record what belonged to him, while it was possible to do so; and this has led to a general discrimination of the poems by signatures at the end of each.
