James Buchanan, North Leith,'— which I would affectionately recommend to every Christian mourner, wlio desires to drink deeply of the refreshing streams which the Fountain of all Comfort--the Word of God, supplies; for it is from this sacred source the pious and talented author of this excellent work derives • Comfort in Affliction,' which his pages so eloquently and attractively sets forth.”

We earnestly hope that it will soon find its way into every Christian family."-Scottish Guardian.
