RECTOR OF THE UNITED PARISHES

J. SEYMOUR, PRINTER.
HE Executors of the late Rev. John Newton feel highly gratified in presenting to the public a.complete edition of his works. The first five volumes are already well known, having been published many years, and were nearly reprinted at the time of the Author's death.
