THIS Abridgement of "Persuasives to
Early Piety" is particularly designed for
Sunday Schools, and for benevolent per-
sons who give away religious publica-
tions, and who find a book of this size
most suitable for their purpose. It
should, however, be understood, that
this volume does not contain more than
half the original work, which is inter-
spersed with prayers and meditations,
adapted to the state of mind referred to
in the various chapters.

The original work is published by
Thomas Richardson, Derby, and is sold
by him; and by Hurst, Chance, and
Co., London.

O that I could, with all the fervour of a dying man, beseech you to attend to your only great concerns!-It is not to a trifle that I call your attention, but to your life, your all, your eternal all, your God, your Saviour, your heaven, your every thing, that is worth a thought or wish
