out her roots by the rivers; that your leaf may be green; that you may never cease from yielding fruit, either thirty, sixty, or an hundred fold; that you may grow as the lily of the vallies; revive as the corn (after refreshing showers); that you may be indulged with such views of a reconciled God and Father shining in the face of Jesus Christ, as that with open face (in opposition to the veil upon the heart,) you may so look as to be changed into the image of Christ, and under these transforming views his glory may be seen upon you, and be your everlasting light, your God and your glory, and consequently your never-setting sun; is the desire and prayer of,

To the Congregation assembling at Providence Chapel ''in Gray's Inn Lane; and to all those Friends in

the Country, who love us in the truth, and for the truth's sake.

DEAR FRIENDS,

The following letter was not written with a

some

view to its publication; but more privately to bear my testimony against what I conceive to be an error of no small magnitude.

Before sending it, however, to the friend to whom it is addressed, I put it into the hands of some of my friends in town, for their perusal-towhose judgment and experience I pay great deference and respect; and, as they unanimously approyed of it, and recommended its publication, with their solicitations I have complied.

As a church, and individually, we consider that we have been uncourteously treated by some of Mr. V--ll's London friends, who have exulted over us on the subject of their favourite theme, the mortality of the body of Christ, as though it was a truth that could not be successfully controverted-a doctrine that could never be scripturally overthrown.
