When it may be necessary to abbreviate a word, the title of the article will be printed in an italic letter; as for exmple, c. for communications; w. for writings, fc. and after the article eluc. for elucidation--exp. for explained, and ans. for answered, will occasionally be printed.

For the sake of comprising a great quantity of matter in a small compass, I have omitted all the references to the scripture elucidations; the Reader will therefore be pleased to attend to the scripture Index for the portions he may be desirous to examine, and refer to the respective books for an explanation, as it would have taken several extra numbers to contain the articles that are there most Divinely elucidated by the Spirit of Truth: and if they were to mark the number of the book and page opposite the texts in their Bibles, it would afford them great assistance in baving an immediate reference and connection with the books.

I would also recommend those who have complete sets, to c.ark them in the margin with the numbers referred to in the Imex, immediately opposite the respective parts that are similar, explanatory, or connected ; and thereby form a complete marginal reference, like those in the Bible; by which means they will be enabled to compare and examine them with the scriptures, weigh the whole together, draw the link, lengthen the chain, see if one link will join with another compare the whole together, see if it adds link to link, chain to chain, like the dawning morning, higher and higher, brighter and brighter, to the perfect day: or like a flower in the bud, opening more and more, until the full blown flower appears. In this manner we must weigh the works of God; like the husbandman's seed, first thrown into the earth, and buried down without any appearance of seed till you see the blacie appear; then cometh the stalk, next the ear, then the blossom, and then the grain is fit for barvest. Just so we must mark the rising of all things that come from Gop,
