AN ACCOUNT OF THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR.

o -
—Because the Preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge;
yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.

The Preacher sought to find out acceptable words; and that which was
written was upright, even words of truth.

The words of the wise are as goads, and as mails fastened by the masters
of assemblies, which are given by one shepherd. Eccles. xii. 9, 10, 11.

At your request we readily express our opinion of ARRowsMITH's ARMILLA CATECHETICA, or CHAIN of PRINCIPLEs, a handsome New Edition of which you are about to publish. That opinion is in a high degree favourable. In an age when learned judicious Theologians were perhaps in an unparalleled degree numerous, DR ARRowsMITH held a distinguished place. None of his writings are more worthy of his high character, than that you are about to republish, with the exception of the Assembly’s ShortER CATECHISM, in the compilation of which he had a principal hand. His ARMILLA CATECHETICA exhibits the first Principles of the Christian Faith with remarkable accuracy, and supports them by the most satisfactory arguments. In reprinting this work, we consider you as having done an important service to the Christian world, and hope your success will be such as to encourage you to give a modern form to some more of the little known, but highly valuable, Treatises of the Nonconformist Divines.
