MY DEAR SIR,

An examination of your rare Collection of the works of British Hymd-writers enabled me to constitute the basis of the present work. In the perfecting of my design, I have received from you many obligations. Now that the labour of nine years is consummated in the appearance of this volume, I inscribe it to you, as a token of rty.esteem. :

. That the Hymns contained in this Collection, which have cheered myself under the clouds of trial, may prove a source of consolation to you in the galley of years," and may be to both of us a foretaste of the Songs of the Redeemed, is the earnest desire and prayer of

My dear Sir,
Your very obedient faithful servant,

CHARLES ROGERS.
