DOMESTIC CHAPLAIN TO HIS GRACE THE ARCHBISHOP OF
CANTERBURY, AND LATE FELLOW OF
AT THE UNIVERSITY PRESS FOR THE AUTHOR.
MOST REVEREND FATHER IN GOD,
BY DIVINE PROVIDENCE,
LORD ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY,
PRIMATE OF ALL ENGLAND,
My LORD In seeking a patron for the Volume now presented to your GRACE, it was natural that I should address myself to one, to whom, though already under deep.obligations, I had found, by experience, that it was not painful to be a debtor. There seemed too to be a propriety in placing under your GRACE's protection a course of Sermons, preached before that body, to my connection with which I primarily owe my introduction to your GRACE, and the distinguished honour of an appointment as one of your Domestic Chaplains.
For the readiness with which my request to that effect was acceded to, I have now to renew my acknowledgments; and publicly to express my sense of your GRACE's kindness and condescension, in permitting the following Work to appear under the sanction of a name, which cannot but ensure it a favourable reception, in the first instance, from those, whose judgment must finally decide upon its merits.
With unfeigned sentiments of duty and respect,
I have the honour to be,
WILLIAM VAUX. October 6, 1826.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them.
