(BY WAY OF APPENDIX,) MEDITATIONS FOR THE SABBATH-VAY,
I am much gratified that you are about to republish Willison on the Sabbath. It is an instructive useful book, which I wish was in every family. It vindicates the sabbath from the objections of INFIDELS, and with a divine blessing, will teach l'every CHRISTIAN how to 66
UN TO THE LORD.
I am your affectionate friend,
JOHN CHESTER. Pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church, Albany.
The reputation of Mr. Willison as a judicious and pious divine has long been established in the Christian Church. Of his many useful works, all eminently distinguished, by a vein of experimental and practical piety, that now proposed for republication is not the least valuable. The 'style, indeed, and the manner of arrangement, mark the period and the country in which it was written, and may appear somewhat antiquated : but all who revere the Lord's day as the great moral institute for the preservation of his name, truth and worship in the world, and who wish to sanctify it to the high and happy ends for which it has been ordained, will find in this book an acceptable and useful aid. It is with the utmost cheerfulness that we recommend it as every way worthy of the patronage of American Christians.
ELIPHALET NOTT, President of Union College.
Presbyterian Church, Albany. 1 most cheerfully concur in the above recommendation.
