PREFATORY NOTE.

The Lectures in this volume have been delivered in Glasgow, St Andrews, and Edinburgh, in connection with the Lectureship founded by the late Mr James Baird of Auchmedden and Cambusdoon. They will be followed by a volume on Anti-Theistic Theories, containing the Baird Lectures for 1877.

The author has to thank the Baird Trustees for having twice appointed him Lecturer, and for much indulgence extended to him during his tenure of office.

His special thanks are due to James A. Campbell, Esq., LL.D., of Stracathro, for kindly revising the sheets of this volume, and for suggesting many corrections and improvements.

PREFATORY NOTE TO THE

THIRD EDITION.

In revising this edition, I have made a considerable number of verbal changes in the text of the Lectures, and some additions to the text of the Notes. Notes XXXIX. and XL. are new; and the latter may be read as a preface by those who deem further preface necessary or desirable.
