RECOMMENDATION.

I am gratified to learn that you are about to publish Boston's "CROOK IN TAE Lot." Few books contain so much valuable matter within the same space. It may be considered an exposition of God's providence towards his people, while performing their pilgrimage through this vale of tears; and was evidently the fruit of much observation of the dispensations of God, and of profound acquaintance with the Holy Scriptures. I do not know that I could point out a work so well adapted to reconcile the afflicted saint to his lot in this world, and at the same time to teach him how to derive benefit from those events which are most adverse to his natural inclinations. I can, therefore, cordially recommend this little volume to all who desire wisely to interpret, and faithfully to improve, the dealings of Providence towards them; especially in the “ dark and cloudy day” of adversity.

A. ALEXANDER.
