Evangelical Repository. — Never before, at least in this country, has love intertwined so lovely and so sweet a wreath a true Immortelle — to lay on the grave of departed childhood.
Glasgow Herald. - It will help to wipe away those tears which, we suppose, are well-nigh the hottest that gush out even in this sad and sorrowing world.
British Controversialist. - This is a casket of affection, full of gems of heart value, and precious to the soul. It is an anthology of parental love and sorrow, and an encyclopædia of pure and holy consolation.
United Presbyterian Magazine. — The plan and execution of this little work are alike most admirable. We cannot exaggerate its merits; and rivals, that see it put above and before themselves, will frankly acknowledge that this is just as it ought to be.
Reformed Presbyterian Magazine. — We heartily cominend it to the perusal of those from whom God has in His mysterious providence removed “household treasures.”
London Quarterly Review, April, 1869. — A most beautiful and blessed book. Here are treasures of consolation, in prose and poetry, for all that are bereaved.
The Morning Star.—It is so true to its title, and so admirably adapted to comfort houses of mourning when the flowers of earth have been transplanted to the heavenly soil, that it cannot fail to be a real household treasure.
Union Magazine for Sunday School Teachers. — A treasury of the consoling utterances of genius and sympathy, admirably adapted to soothe those who weep because their children 66 are not.”
Pulpit Analyst. — Never, to our knowledge, was the literature of infant salvation so extensively ed, or so wisely and carefully distributed.
NOTE TO THE AMERICAN EDITION.
This volume, of which fifteen thousand copies have already been printed in Great Britain, hardly needs commendation to the American reader. But the testimony of two eminent clergymen - one in England and the other in Scotland — may not be out of place.
Dean Alford, in the “ Contemporary Review,” says: “This charming book originally sprung out of a bereavement, which has indeed brought forth choice fruit. Mr. Logan has brought together an ample collection, from writers, English and foreign, in prose and verse, of passages which could bear on this subject. The large diffusion of the volume is of itself testimony of the truth of our recommendation, when we say that it is one which would form a precious gift to bereaved friends, and would be admitted into counsel with the wounded heart, at a time when almost all words, written and spoken, are worthless. Higher praise could hardly be given.”
George Gilfillan, in the “Dundee Advertiser,” says: “ Cordially do we wish that it may find its way into every room of the vast house of mourning, and do there its benevolent mission as a portion of the grand ministry by which God is yet to 'wipe away tears from all faces.'”
That its lessons, so full of healing balm, so enriched with truth, so clothed in beauty, may relieve, console, and gladden many a stricken heart, is the hope of the American Publishers.
