ΔΕΙ-ΜΝΗΜΟΝΕΥΕΙΝ ΤΩΝ ΛΟΓΩΝ ΤΟΥ ΚΥΡΙΟΥ ΙΗΣΟΥ.-ΠΛΥΟΣ
TWO VOLUMES IN ONE.
TO JAMES DOUGLAS, OF CAVERS, ESQUIRE.
My Dear Sir,
Your honored name is placed in the front of these volumes, not 80 much to grace them (though, as Selden says,
“ bookes are most fitly consecrated to true lovers of goodnesse and all good learning"), as to gratify their author, by giving him an opportunity of expressing the deep conviction he has long felt, of the important and enduring service you have in your writings done to the cause of christian truth and love ; and of record ing the pleasure and advantage derived from intercourse with you, for nearly thirty years, and the ever-increasing cordial regard which has grown out of that intercourse.
May God, “even our own God," who has blessed you and made you a blessing to the church and to the world, bless you more and more, and more make you a blessing. May you long continue, Sir, to adorn your station, to bless your family, to “ devise liberal things,” and to add to those literary gifts by which, without impoverishing yourself, you are "making many rich" on earth, and, I doubt not," laying up for yourself treasure in heaven."
I am, My Dear Sir,
Most respectfully and affectionately,
