47, Washington Street:
REV. J. PYE SMITH, D. D.
TUTOR IN THE OLD COLLEGE, HOMERTON.
Dear Sir, I count myself happy in having this opportunity, of publicly testifying the high esteem and veneration in which I hold your character as a valued Friend, and a distinguished Theologian.
It is among the goodliest allotments of my heritage, that I was placed under your theological instructions, and introduced into the circle of your friendship.
As my attendance on your Divinity Lectures, and my perusal of your polemical writings, have had no small share in directing and forming my mind to the study of the Christian Propitiation, I feel bound, in affection and duty, to present to you the first cluster that has ripened under your training.
God has raised you to a high elevation in English theology. In that eminent position, may God long preserve you, the amiable expounder, and the able defender, of the sacrifice and the TESTIMONY of Christ.
Accept of this volume as an expression of the deep and sincere affection with which
I am your attached Friend,
T. W. JENKYN. Oswestry, Nov. 5, 1833.
