TO HER MAJESTY,
THE QUEEN DOWAGER,
TO WHOSE MUNIFICENT PIETY, AND EXALTED
THE BRITISH INHABITANTS OF MALTA
ARE INDEBTED FOR A CHURCH
WORTHY OF THE NAME AND THE RELIGION OF
THIS SMALL VOLUME OF SERMONS,
PREACHED TO THE TROOPS IN THAT GARRISON,
WITH HER MAJESTY'S GRACIOUS PERMISSION,
MOST RESPECTFULLY INSCRIBED
BY HER MAJESTY'S
FAITHFUL HUMBLE SERVANT,
THE following Sermons were delivered by the Author, in the discharge of his duty as Chaplain to the Forces. In regard to the style of their composition, it is, perhaps, needless to remark, that brevity and plainness are generally deemed desirable in such discourses.
They are now published under the encouragement of kind, it may be partial, friends. And, whatever may be their defects in other respects, the Author ventures at least to hope, that the thought and the language will be found alike practical and scriptural.
