CORRESPONDENCE.

AS we appear to have referred to Mr. Fuller's sentiments, in reviewing his “ Dialogues,” p. 161. in a manner liable to misconception, we lay his letter to us on the subject before our readers, declining any comment; it is scarcely necessary to observe that our words were thenot a certain dominion of motives," as their meaning seems to have been correctly understood.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ECLECTIC REVIEW.

SIR,

In your No. for Feb. 1807, p. 161, speaking of my sentiments on the atonement of Christ, you say, “ In this part of his views Mr. F. has no controversy with the Arminians, though he considers that it is foreknoen to whom this atonement will really prove beneficial, and they contend that it is contingent. Here they are at issue on a point of fact; the real question, however, on which this difference chiefly turns, is a question of mere mental science, whether moral accountability consist with a cerinin dominion of motives on the human mivd.”

If I understand the meaning of this critique, the amount of it is this: that with respect to the atonement, I am of one mind with the Arminians, though as to its effects being foreknown, or contingent, there is yet some diffGrence between us; and that as to this, the question on which it chiefly turns is a question of mere men. tal science.

If, Sir, I had been conscious of the justice of this account, or even if it had been
