PREFACE.

The following Sermons have been collected from among those preached between the years 1832 and 1840; and have been chosen with a view to the illustration of Scripture, “ either by explaining certain passages or portions of the sacred volume, or by stating some general rules of interpretation which may apply to the whole of it.” The present volume will thus, in some measure, fulfil the intention expressed by my husband in the Introduction to the third volume of his Sermons.

Having been mostly preached in the chapel at Rugby, these Sermons must necessarily be of a practical character; but it will be found that they all bear more or less upon Interpretation—with the exception of three or four, which seemed to demand insertion from their peculiar subjects.
