PREFACE.

It has been a conjecture of some, who have read the former editions of the following discourses, that the author has a special view to certain sects, as Methodists, and Baptists; and aimed to place them in an odious light. But the conjecture is unfounded. He had no particular view to these, or any other denomination ; but a general view to disorderly teachers of all denominations.

The discourses were written and preached, when methodists were scarcely known in this part of the country, and when baptists were little distinguished by the intemperance of their zeal

for proselytism, and when neither of them attempted to make divisions among his people.
