ROBERT PORTER, of this town, has issued proposals for publishing the above excellent Book, by suhscripiion, on good paper, and with a plain common sized type, at the very low price of fill;/ coils. Perhaps, next lo the Bible, this is the best book extant for private and family use....No one is better calculated to awaken, convince and convert sinners, rtnd to conduct them in the straight and narrow path to Heaven ; as doubr less tile experience of many can witness...No one is more highly esteemed by pious people of all denominations, as is abundantly evident from the numerous editions it has passed through both in this country and Europe. As the proposed price is only half the sum ii is now selling for in most of our Book-stores, it will be seen, that neither the Printer, nor any persons who promote the woik, have any oh jeet in view, hut the good ol souls, and the glo of God.
