PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.

In this Memoir, very much has been preserved of Mi M'CHEYNE's own words, as well as feelings. Still there is a defect quite apparent. All who knew him not only saw in him a burning and a shining light, but felt also the breathing of the hidden life of God; and there is no narrative that can fully express this peculiarity of the living man. Yet, nevertheless, as I have had the prayers of many, and havé myself throughout asked the cr to guide ms with his eye, I believe he will not let this record of;

his servaatiga forth unblessed. Some of his most precioas-Letters may be found, in whole or in part, in the Memoir; the injst, however, are reserved for the second volume. The foştrais is not an exact likeness: it was executed after his death from a very imperfect sketch -but it will recall his form to all who knew him. It is now year

since he rested from his labours; and this Memoir is a record of some of those works that follow him.
