ASSEMBLING AT

RANELAGH CHAPEL.

AS very many of you have frequently expressed your vish that I would prepare a Hymn Book for your use, thich should include the majority of Psalms and Iymns of Dr. Watts, and also those which are in eneral use, from other Authors of eminence, I have at ength complied ; and although I am conscious of imberfection in the present publication, yet I can assure you that it has cost me very considerable labour and mriety; but I never have, and I hope never shall, regret the employment of my best energies at the request, and for the welfare of those, to whom I am so cordially attached, and from whom I have received so many proofs of affection and esteem : and it affords me great pleasure to avail myself of this opportunity of leaving on record my fervent prayers for your present happiness, and eternal salvation.
