This volume contains all the printed papers which display the religious principles of the Associate Presbytery of Pennsylvania, and the people of their communion.

The Presbytery have studied plainness and perspicuity, in stating their religious profession, more than elegance of style. The Apostle says, 1 Tim. 3: 15, that the church of Christ is “the pillar and ground of the truth;" that is, the church is a public witness of the truth, and he alludes to the custom among the Romans, of inscribing the edicts of magistrates, presently in force, upon pillars erected in public places, and in courts of judgment, that all might know them, and govern themselves accordingly.

That this collection may be the means of spread-
ing the knowledge of reformation principles, of
removing prejudices from the minds of the genera-
tion, and uniting the hearts of the Lord's people in
love and in the truth, that they may stand fast in
one spirit, with one accord, striving together for
The faith of the gospel, is the hearty desire of

WILLIAM MARSHALL.
