ADVERTISEMENT.

The design of the following pages is, to console mothers mourning over the death of their children, by considerations, addressed chiefly to the reason and the conscience. These are suggested in rich abundance by the Holy Scriptures, and by the writings of eminent persons in every age of the Church. Such considerations, it is presumed, are more likely to influence reflective and thoughtful minds, than extracts which appeal merely to the sentimental and imaginative faculty.

THE RECTORY, STOKE NEWINGTON,

Festival of the Holy Innocents, 1861.
