W. EADE, PRINTER, LINDFIELD:

INTRODUCTION.

The "Apology," by Robert Barclay, (a work that has been always highly esteemed by the Society of Friends) being too voluminous for the generality of readers, and containing much controversial matter, better suited to the period in which it was written than to the present time, the following selection has been made from those parts of it, which are most illustrative of the views of Friends, on the experimental application of the great truths of Christian doctrine.

The contents of the following pages are calculated to prove deeply interesting and instructive to all, especially to the youthful reader; not only to those of our own religious Society, but to every sincere Christian.
