PUBLISHER'S ADVERTISEMENT.

The second day after the author of the following sermons commenced a protracted meeting in Burlington Vt. Dec. 8, 1835----the Publisher engaged Mr. B.J. Tenney, at a stipulated price, to attend all his meetings, and report his sermons, and what other matter he might deem of general interest, in short hand, and write them out fully with a view of publishing them.

Mr. Tenney commenced, at once, to fulfil his engagement, and, being capable of following any speaker, and reporting his sermon or address fully, no doubt was entertained of his giving true and faithful copies.

On the 17th, Dec. the publisher left town and did not return untill the 9th of January, during all which time, he heard nothing directly, or indirectly from his reporter, until he arrived at Montpelier on his return,(8th January) where he heard many reports of Mr. Burchard's buying Mr. Tenney's notes &c. &c. A statement of which may be found in the Appendix.

That Mr. Burchard, or his friends, should not be able to bring the charge that the publisher in

tended to misrepresent or 'garble' his sermons, he addressed a letter to 'him, at Hinesburgh, of which the following is a copy.

BURLINGTON, Jan. 19, 1836. SiR :-I have some six or seven of your serinons delivered in this town,-address to the anxious—address at communion-Prayers, &c. which I intend to publish. Should you wish to correct them, copies will be furnished you for that purpose.

at the same time, addressed a letter to the Post Master at Hinesburgh, of which the following is a copy

BURLINGTON, Jan. 19, 1896. SIR - I have, by this Mail, sent a letter to your office, for 'Rev. J. Burchard. Should he leave your town before you receive it, I wish you to ascertain where it may reach him, and forward it.

Your obedient servant.

CHAUNCEY GOODRICH. To T. W. Gibb, Esq. P. M. ?

Hinesburgh, Vt. As this publication has been often charged to the Faculty of the University of Vermont, it is due to them, and to the public generally, to say, that they had nothing to do, directly or indirectly, with any transaction connected with, or relating to this publication. The plan was formed and the Stenographer had been some time engaged in taking notes before it was known to any one of them.

Many, may object to publishing from notes of sermons, taken at the time of their delivery.
