JOHN F. TROW, In the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the Southern District of New York.
If the author succeeds in presenting to the Christian world for its decision the question, whether the prophecy of the Revelation be double or not, he will regard his labors as eminently successful. He believes this question will be answered in the affirmative; and its answer in the affirmative will be a matter of no small consequence.
