RISE AND PROGRESS
Of Religion in the Soul.
o
U. 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.
It is presumed that every one who wishes for
the spiritual rise and progress of religion in hi*
soul, or his family, will subscribe, and
that all friends of religion will encourage the
worlc.
