gleaned for the purpose of making it a work of reference for the friends and supporters of Missionary Societies. Some of the incidental matter

is eminently interesting."-Athenæum. "Mr. Long's book relates to Church of England Missions in the Bengal

Presidency. He is candid and tolerant, and there never was yet a book written, on the statements contained in which more reliance might with

safety be reposed.”- Atlas, Sept. 2, 1818. See also Christian Observer, Sept., 1848, Colonial Church Chronicle and

"This very valuable book abundantly fulfils the expectations which the

announcement of it awakened in the minds of those who were acquainted with the very peculiar qualifications of the writer for the work he had undertaken

We have certainly not met with any book which we could, with equal confidence, recoininend as a suitable basis for Apocalyptic studies, and so well adapted to render such studies interest

ing to those to whom they are new.”--Kilto's Journal of Sacred Literature. “This work is not by any means to be confounded with the mass of writing

of which the Apocalypse has, for the last two centuries, been the subject. We know not one of them with which it may not, in some respect or other, be advantageously contrasted. This volume is one of the best, in some respects the very best, of all that we have seen on the Apocalypse." --Eclectic Revicu.
