TO THE

FIRST EDITION.

The dialogues in this volume are selected and altered from a work, cntitled “The Village Manual.” In the revision of them, the Editor has made considerable alterations in the style, and has occasionally amplified the sentiments. It is the object of these dialogues to exhibit and enforce the various exercises, duties, and privileges of the Christian life; to awaken the careless; to excite the lukewarm; and to instruct and comfort the penitent believer.

The exhortation to ejaculatory prayer, with suitable forms of ejaculatory devotion, has been altered from an original treatise on this subject, recommended by Bishop Horne, and the Rev. William Jones, of Naylana; and their names are pledges for the soundness and the fervour of its devotional exercises. The Editor thought that the various articles in this volume were admirably calculated to excite and

cherish evangelical and fervent piety; and he has, therefore, felt himself gratified in the humble offic of compiling this Manual of Christian Faith and Devotion, and presenting it to the public.

J. H. HOBART. New-York, May 28, 1814.
