“I have now kept it on my table for several months. I found it of great use in interpreting certain passages in the Lessons, and other portions of Holy Scripture, which I had occasion to read privately and before my congregation. On the points it more especially examines, it is more thorough and exhaustive than any com. mentary I have ever met with. I don't wonder that our learned friend, Dr Tayler Lewis, speaks of it so warmly, as a valuable addition to our sacred literature."W. Payne, D. D., Schenectady.
“The Book of Books on this question. I trust steps will be taken by some friend of truth and humanity in cach church in this Union, to supply his own pastor with a copy."—Hon. E. C. DELAVAN, Schenectady.
