Excerpt: ... ADVERTISEMENT THE EDITION OF M.DCCC.XXIII. rpHE Discourses contained in the three last volumes of the present edition,1 with the exception of the Appendix, were first published in the year 1744, with the following title: "Five additional Volumes of Sermons preached upon several Occasions.

A list of the words or passages corrected is subjoined to each volume. 1 These Discourses form the fourth and fifth volumes of this edition. THE CHIEF HEADS OF THE SERMONS. VOL. IV. SERMON I.
