To the noble President, and the honourable Managers of that Institution, as well as to the liberal-minded audiences before whom the whole series was delivered, it is but justice to add, distinctly, that they are in nowise responsible for any thing in these Lectures which was unworthy to be repeated before them. The author would disdain to shelter himself under their sanction from any censure which honest criticism can inflict upon him, in cases where he may have abused their confidence. The Lectures have been anxiously revised, especially those parts which the limited time allowed for delivery required to be omitted on the spot, but which appeared to be more necessary for their intelligence when submitted to cool perusal, than when uttered before indulgen: hearers with the living voice.
