"Universally and cordially do we recommend this delightful volume. We believe no person could read this work and not be the better for its pious and touching lessons. It is a page taken from the book of life, and eloquent with all the instruction of an excellent pattern: it is a commentary on the affectionate warning, 'Remember thy Creator in the days of thy youth.'

"We never in all our experience met with a more interesting work, and one breathing more fully and firmly the very essence of Christian philanthropy and national patriotism, and that too in the most simple and unambitious language, as if the writer were not aware of his power of influencing all the better feelings of the human heart."— Literary Chronicle.

"The intention of this book is not less admirable than the manner in which it is written.

MORTAL LIFE; AND THE STATE OF THE SOUL
CONFORMABLE TO DIVINE REVELATION. By ALEXANDer Cop-
thick vol. 8vo., price 15s. bound.
"The work will afford in perusal, to all sorrowing relations, the consolation and diversion of mind of the most congenial kind. It neither leads the thoughts to dwell painfully on one idea-that of loss-nor does it altogether withdraw the mind from its contemplation: an effort still more painful. The study of a work like this, on the contrary, while it gradually weans grief from its melancholy occupation, supplies it with the sweetest and most cheerful of all balm-the happy certainty of re-union, not after the lapse of vast ages of time, but of the instant term of mortal existence."-Theological Review.
Comprising The CREATION-The CHRISTIAN SCHEME-The INNER

The author thinks for himself; and so writes that his readers must think too, or they will not be able to understand him.-To the sacred volume, as a revelation from God, he pays uniform and entire deference-and the thoughtful and prayerful reader will soon find that he has not the thinkings of a commonplace mind before him."-Methodist Magazine.

"It would be impossible to find, in the whole range of our literature, a work so admirably suited to the present times as this invaluable little volume.
