HON. FRANCIS 0. WATTS:
MY DEAR FRIEND,
Allow me to inscribe your name upon this volume, both as a tribute of respect and Christian affection, and as due to the interest which
have been pleased to express in its preparation. It was at your suggestion that the work was at first undertaken ; and in now presenting you the consummation of your wishes, and my gleanings through the precio... and abundant fields of Christian biography, I am oppressed with but one painful sentiment - a sorrow that so noble a theme has fallen into hands so unequal to bestow upon it adequate justice. Trusting that He who “ hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty," will sanctify this work for the accomplishment of some pious offices, it is humbly placed upon his altar.
B. K. PEIRCE.
