PREFACE.

The very favourable reception which the Christian public has given to the “ Memoir and Remains” of the author, by the Rev. Andrew A. Bonar, has induced the Editor of this Volume, with the sanction and approbation of a clerical friend of great eminence and piety, intimately acquainted with the author and his writings, and by whom the greater part of the work has been revised, to publish these Additional Remains, consisting of a selection from the various Sermons and Lectures delivered by Mr. M.Cheyne in the course of his ministry. Like those annexed to Mr. Bonar's Memoir, they are printed from the author's MS. notes, written as preparations for the pulpit, but not intended for publication, or revised by him with that view.

This volume contains specimens of Discourses delivered in all the years of the author's ministry; and the places and dates of delivery are given at the close of each Discourse, wherever they have been marked. The demand for their

publication by members of his flock and other friends, many of whom own him as their spiritual father, has been loud and urgent. To all such the book will be acceptable, as helping “to stir up their pure minds by way of remembrance;" and, notwithstanding many imperfections, which, in the circumstances of its publication, have been unavoid. able, the Editor hopes that, by the blessing of God, it may be useful to others also into whose hands it may fall.
