Excerpt from National Duties, and Other Sermons and Addresses The Sermons contained in this Volume are a small selection from the manuscripts left to us by our Father, and were written for the most part during the earlier period of his ministry in Liverpool; but were afterwards delivered (in their present revised form) during the term of his London ministry at Little Portland Street Chapel. To make this clear, we have given the dates at the end of each. Although t included by him when producing his two Series, - the Endeavours (in 1843 and 1847) and the Hours of Thought (in 1876 and 1880) - we have felt that they would be welcomed and found helpful by many; and we owe to Dr. James Drummond's kindness the judicious choice, from among a much larger number, of what seem to be the most valuable and characteristic.
