EDINBURGH: T. CONSTABLE,

PRINTER TO THE QUEEN, AND TO THE UNIVERSITY.

TO THE RIGHT HON. AND RIGHT REV.

ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL,

LORD BISHOP OF LONDON.

MY DEAR LORD,

I owe the opportunity of preaching the first of these Sermons to your kindness, and it is printed at.your request. For those that I have joined with it, I cannot venture to claim even such a measure of approval as that request may be supposed to imply as to its immediate object. Wishing, however, to collect a few Sermons, which had been published separately at intervals of some years, and to add to them others which I have preached recently at Oxford and elsewhere, I may be pardoned perhaps for bringing them out in connexion with what has, in some degree, commended itself to your judgment. I shall be glad if what I have thus added is in harmony with the spirit of cautious progress and reverential freedom which have characterized your Lordship's teaching, and the maintenance of which by the Bishops and Clergy of the Church of England, will best enable her to preserve or to regain her hold on the mind and the affections of the English people.

I am,

MY DEAR LORD,
Yours faithfully and obediently,

E. H. PLUMPTRE.

King's College, LONDON,

November 28th, 1865.
