"HAVING seen the plan, and a part of the execution, of a book on Family Religion, about to be published by the Rev. William Cogswell of Dedbam, we the undersigned, would express our cordial approbation of the same. It is on a subject vitally important to the interests of the Redeemer's kingdom; and which claims the serious and earnest attention of the Christian Community. The plan and execution of the work, so far as we have attended to them, appear to be judicious, and well calculated to accomplish the end in view. The work we think will be very useful, and highly deserving the attention of individuals and families. We earnestly hope, that the publication may meet with liberal patronage, and be accompanied with the Divine blessing."
