wrought by men, which yet are utterly rejected by God, and shall never
stand upon record in order to an eternal acceptation, because they took no
heed to keep their heart with Him."-Flavel.

TO THE RIGHT REVEREND

CHARLES RICHARD,

LORD BISHOP OF WINCHESTER.

MY LORD,

It has frequently in the course of my duties as a Clergyman been matter with me of thankfulness to Almighty God that I received my

authority to preach the Gospeľ by the laying on of your hands, and of those of another devoted, and since right reverend, Presbyter, nearly related to yourself, who was then present. The solemn Charge which you then addressed to us, and the Sermon then preached, and since printed, by that eminent Prelate, (from Rev. xi. 15.-"THE KINGDOMS OF THIS

WORLD ARE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, AND OF HIS CHRIST;

AND HE SHALL REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER”)--together with your Lordship’s earnest and fervent counsel and truly pastoral feeling to all your candidates, will, I trust for myself, abide always for good in my remembrance. Your Lordship's permission to inscribe to you this small effort in the cause of truth is, therefore I need not say, a gratifying encouragement to me in such an undertaking. That he who is “ the Head over all things to his Church” may long preserve to it your faithful and zealous labours is the sincere prayer of

MY LORD,

YOUR LORDSHIP'S DEVOTED AND FAITHFUL SERVANT,

J. K. CRAIG.

Oulton Parsonage,

November 22nd, 1832.
