For the errors and imperfections which he fears will be found in the work, he must offer as his best, though (he is sensible) feeble apology; that from some unavoidable circumstances, the work, amidst the pressure of professional duties, was written and printed with a haste and rapidity that prevented those frequent and careful corrections, by which only a young and humble writer can hope to attain accuracy and excellence.

That the work, notwithstanding its imperfections, may tend to excite the attention of the careless to that inestimable ordinance which is the means and pledge of the Saviour's Grace and Mercy—that it may aid the Christian to receive, with lively penitence, gratitude and faith, the hallowed symbols of the Body and Blood of his blessed Redeemer, by which he is to be nourished and strengthened unto everlasting life—is the humble but earnest Prayer
