PREFACE.

The objects contemplated by the Authors of the several Lectures contained in this Volume are set forth with sufficient distinctness. It only remains, therefore, for the Committee of the Young Men's Christian Association to express their grateful appreciation of the kind and valuable services rendered to the Association by the respected Lecturers, and to renew their thanks to those Friends who from year to year support this publication, and so aid the Committee in their endeavour to make the instructions and counsel provided for Young Men in London available for the general public.

The circulation of the Lectures of last year, both in separate Numbers and in the Volume, largely exceeded that of previous years, and the Committee venture to hope that equal favour will attend the present series, so that by its wide dissemination a large number of Young Men may be aided in the pursuit of knowledge, and may, under the blessing of Almighty God, be led to the adoption of the “Pure Religion” of the Gospel; and, in the enjoyment of that "peace of God which passeth all understanding," which

shall “keep their hearts and minds, throuqh Christ Jesus," may be sustained in the honourable and efficient discharge of daily duties, and prompted to such holy activities as may benefit and bless mandiside
