Rev. Doctor Morse's. “The Rev.E. Smith has communicated to me the plan of his Dissertation on the Prophecies, and read in my hearing a considerable part of his MS. I deem his work seasonable, ingenious, and deeply interesting to the public. In explaining and applying some very important prophecies, he appears to differ from all the writers on the subject, who have preceded him, and for reasons, which, so far as my attention to the work enables me to decide, are as satisfactory as the nature of the case will admit. I cordially unite with my fathers and brethren above named, in their wishes to have this work published; and am persuaded it will be read with interest, and I would hope with profit, by multitudes of Christians who are anxiously observant of the signs of the times.

“The Hopkinton Association, in the state of New Hampshire, having given a hearing to the Dissertation of the Rev. E. Smith, on the Prophecies relative to Antichrist, do approve of the object and execution of the work. They view it calculated to promote the interest of Zion in this age of the world; and do therefore cordially recommend it to the careful and impartial perusal of every class of people.

Rev. Mr. M Farland's. “I have read in manuscript a “Dissertation on the Prophecies relative to Antichrist, and the last times,” by the Rev. E. Smith. In this eventful age, a work, that is calculated to explain the import and fulfilment of proph. ecy, is peculiarly seasonable and interesting. I can with sincerity concur with others, who have given their opinion respecting this work, and say, I believe it communicates new light on the prophecies, which relate to the last times. I wish it may be published, and have an extensive circulation. Concord, July 25, 1810.
