JOHN W. DAVIS,
Clerk of the District of Massachusetts,
THE FIRSI AMERICAN EDITION.
The following work, though it has hitherto appeared without the author's name, is well known to be the production of a Member of the British Parliament, who, to the speculations of a correct mind, appears to have added the result of sound experience. Having been successful in the education and govern. ment of a numerous family of children, till they became heads of families themselves, at their request, and for their benefit especially, he prepared this View of Christian Educa. tion. The work, after coming under the public eye, met with so favourable a reception, that within a short period it passed through three editions. The writer of this article, having access to a copy of it through the kind. ness of a friend, lias carefully perused it, and is free to say, that, with merited reproof, he has also experienced instruction and delight.
