The First Course of Sermons, adapted to the service of the Sundays and Holidays of our Church, having passed into a Second Edition; the Editor has been encouraged, by this approbation of his labours, to arrange a Second Course of Sermons, with a strict adherence to the principle of his former plan. He ventures to hope, that to some of his Readers who have adopted his Volumes into the system of their Sabbatical instruction, this fresh series will not be unacceptable, if comprising either new subjects, or the former subjects stated by different writers, in new points of view. He commits these volumes to the Public with the greater confidence, from having been permitted to inscribe them to his respected Diocesan. This condescending permission, on the part of that distinguished Prelate, although it cannot be supposed to sanction the propriety or the judgement evinced in the selection of the following Discourses, must yet be deemed the strongest testimony to the utility of the intention.
The Editor designs to publish (if time and opportunity be afforded) one volume of Discourses, relating to the principal subjects comprised in the Psalms. He would thereby complete his plan of forming a copious collection of the most orthodox and instructive sermons, tending to illustrate and enforce such portions of Scripture, as the framers of our Liturgy have incorporated in the service of the Church.
