PREFACE.

THE Author of this work rejoices that so much has been written of late years, and well written, in defence of the Sabbath Day. But he conceives, that the sacred observance of the Sabbath may be greatly promoted, by putting into the hands of Christians, and especially young persons, a book of a strictly religious and practical kind, for reading on that Holy Day

In the selection of his topics, while the Author has had in view the good of all, he has had specially in view the spiritual interests of the young and rising generation ; and in order to arrest attention, and avoid tediousness, his sketches are short, and intended to be suggestive rather than illustrative. It is his earnest prayer that God may

bless these “ Words in Season" to all who shall

read them, in commending to them the youthful piety of the Bible—in fortifying them against temptation—in helping them to keep the Sabbath as a day of sacred rest—and in preparing them for another and a better world.

H. B.

CUMBERNAULD, Dec. 1855.
