REV. C. F. A. STEINKOPFF, D.D.

MINISTER OF THE GERMAN LUTHERAN CHURCH,

SAVOY, LONDON, &c.

MY DEAR FRIEND,

It is now some years since you offered and rendered me very timely assistances towards securing the

correctness of the present translation; it was a kindness

not to be forgotten, and I take this opportunity of publicly and gratefully acknowledging it. To “paint a diamond” I shall not attempt; either by here saying more of yourself, or by praising the real jewelry of this book. Neither the one nor the other has any need of the kind. My thoughts will be better directed to whatever failures are attributable to my work or to myself, who have such bright examples before me.

Yet as I have often said how much reason I have to

be thankful that I ever became acquainted with Bengel,

so allow me to add, that the benefit I have thus alluded

to will, I am confident, ever be increased by my remaining, what I now subscribe myself,

Most gratefully and affectionately

Yours,

R. F. WALKER.

PURLEIGH PARSONAGE,
