be easily judged to apply to the miraculous Birth, though not to be previously discovered. Of such a description are many allusions under the following heads:
Where the Bridegroom and Brkle are only mentioned—Where the marriage of the Lamb occurs only generally—The like with respect to heirs and joint heirs—The bone not to be broken— The good fruit—Born of the Spirit—Second Birth or New Birth—Christ in the Woman's form—The Woman made to complete the happiness of man—The standard, or ensign—Sun of Righteousness—The Prince of Peace—The sword left to guard the tree of life, being the promise made to the woman, for her seed to bruise the head of the serpent—The promise made to the woman to complete the happiness of man.
All generally under the above heads, we may now understand as exclusively applying to the subject of this collection j but as they appeared too mysterious heretofore, to say how they could be fulfilled, they have been mostly excluded, excepting in some instances where the context pointed out their application to the Child in a more particular manner.
PRINCE OF PEACE.

"When the fulness of the time was come, God 6ent his Son made of a woman, made under the law,"—a mystery which no man can explain. If it began with the woman at first, it must end with her at last; and now I must stand the trial of what I say, as I am ordered to put in print, that the woman in the xii of Rev. is myself.

Bring now the woman, let her come,
That writes or acts as thou hast done;
Then an impostor thou shalt be,

No woman ever did assume'
Tosay a Child was ever born.
As Mary did the Son <>f God—
Now where's the woman will appear
To shew herself the Bride so clear I S. E. of F. 92.

All by their forefathers done
If they to the purpose come. S. E. of F. 119.
'Twas the Two Lights that Simeon be did see,
The Jews and Gentiles, glorious lights to be;
And why so glorious did these two appear?
Because the Virgin did the Saviour bear;

"Break forth in singing, thy Deliverer's near.

E. of F. 277.
But by my Bone I'll prove it here,
I am the living head. S. E. of F. 278.
I bid you persevere—
Improve Jouf call, I tell you alf,
I'll act like Satan there.
For to bring on the fall;

I ask, when was this vision seen, of the Woman* .travailing in birth and crying to be delivered? Was it before our Saviour was born, or since? Your answer must be, since.
