PREFACE.

WHETHER we consider the variety of its contents,—the importance of the subjects discussed, -the character of the writing-or the tone that pervades the whole,—we entertain the hope that this Fifty-fifth Volume of the Baptist Magazine will not be deemed inferior to any of its numerous predecessors. We avail ourselves of this opportunity, most heartily to thank the many friends who have assisted our labours during the past year; and we are happy to announce that negotiations are in progress, which it is hoped will secure in the future a much larger circulation for the Magazine.

In common with all denominational publications, we have suffered considerably from the rivalry of periodicals which, not being restricted to any section of the Christian Church, command a far wider

range of readers than we can hope to attain. Without sacrificing any of the objects which our fathers had in view when they projected this work, we hope in the coming year so far to popularize its contents, as to render it an attractive visitor in the numerous families connected with our congregations. The earliest opportunity will be taken for the publication of plans, which at present await the sanction of the Proprietors.

D. KATTERNS.

W. G. LEWIS, JUN. November, 1863.
