Anticipating the approaching year, as auspicious to seamen, and eventful to the Society, the Directors have resolved on publishing an Improved Series of their“ Pilot," as noticed in the present and in the last numbers: and while they purpose sparing no pains to render it additionally interesting to their readers, they trust that it will find a, multiplication of its patrons; and thus, through the blessing of the Holy Spirit, render still more essential service to their great objects -- the honour of our national character, as represented to foreigners by our sailors the regeneration and salvation of our mariners,- and chiefly, the glory of God our Saviour.
“THE Pilot, OR Sailors' MAGAZINE," professes to be purely Christian-orthodox and evangelical in its religious sentiments-its Editor, and the Directors of the Society, holding sacred the grand and saving principles of the Protestant Reformation at the same time unsectarian, its pages excluding all reference to ecclesiastical peculiarities: while, therefore, it includes a record of the worthy efforts of all who labour to benefit seamen, and is adapted also, in its various contents, to be a family periodical, and being at the same time the only work of the kind published in the United Kingdom, it must have a powerful claim for support upon all classes, and upon all denominations of Christians in Great Britain.
The Editor offers his best thanks to his friends, and to his numerous correspondents, for their past favours, which he trusts will be renewed: and communications for the “ Pilot” are respectfully solicited from the friends of seamen, especially illustrations of the wonderful works of God, in relation to the sea and to rare marine productions, and still more, details of the progress of the Kingdom of Christ among mariners of all nations.
