This volume is composed of Charges, Discourses, Addresses, and Pastoral Letters, which have been prepared by the author, in the course of his official duties during the last thirteen years. With one exception, they have been printed already. They are now collected and reprinted for more convenient reference, and in the hope that they may possibly prove useful to some, to whom they were not at first addressed. In arranging them, the author has beguiled some hours of lassitude and sickness, which could not be given to more active duties; and he now commits them to the indulgence of his friends, and the candid consideration of the public. Should he speak no more through the press or with the living voice, in this volume may be found his settled opinions upon many topics connected with the interests of the clerical profession, the extension of the Christian Church, and the welfare of society.
