IT may be proper to inform the Reader, that this interesting discussion commenced so far back as the early part of 1821, with an Essay over the signature of "PAUL," (in the CHRISTIAN REPOSITORY,) charging the Society of Friends with holding doctrines and practices inimical to the principles of the Gospel, as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. These charges were ably met by another writer over the signature of " AMICUS." Seldom have the productions of anonymous writers excited a more lively interest than have these of "Paul" and "Amicus," especially among Presbyterians and Friends.
As the Authors have never been recognized, they only dre responsible for the sentiments expressed in their Essays.
