ADDRESS.

SOLDIERS,

THE contents of this volume were written by men who take a deep interest in your temporal and spiritual welfare. They know from experience the temptations peculiarly incident to your profession, and the sins which easily beset you: but they know also the safeguards and encouragements which are afforded by the service of which you are members, to shield you from the attacks of the world, the flesh, and the devil, and to cheer you on the way which leads to everlasting life. The education which your Queen and country so liberally provide for your benefit will, if you take advantage of it, benefit you

intellectually, morally, and spiritually. The religious services which it is actually part of your military duty to attend regularly will, if you heartily join in them, give you grace and strength to fight manfully under Christ's banner, and to

continue His faithful soldiers and servants unto your life’s end. The lessons contained in the Holy Scriptures, which are supplied to all of you, illustrated by the examples of God's saints and servants, of whom you read therein, will teach you how to follow the example of the great Captain of your salvation, and to be made like unto Him. The sacrament of the Lord's Supper, which you are frequently invited to partake of, will strengthen and refresh your souls, and be to you a continual memorial of your Saviour's death, to your great and endless comfort.

It is hoped that these short treatises, written expressly for your use, may by the blessing of Almighty God tend to awaken the sinner, to settle the waverer, and to confirm the faithful follower of Christ in the course which he has chosen. May God of His infinite mercy grant, for the sake of His beloved Son, that when this life's warfare is over you may enjoy everlasting peace, and obtain that crown of glory which fadeth not away.

R. W. B.
