THE HAPPY CHRISTIAN,BY J. B. WATERBURY;PREFACE.Thb unexpected favor with which the religiouspublic received the ''Advice to a Young Chris-tian'' — ^the author's first production — induces thehope that, after the lapse of several years, someadditional observations on practical religion fromthe same pen, may not be unacceptable.This little book, though designed for all classesof readers, was written, it must be confessed, withan eye rather to the young ; whether professors ornon-professors. The former, it is hoped, may bestimulated by it to greater activity in the divinelife ; and the latter, by the accompanying convic-tion of the Holy Spirit, be persuaded that piety isthe only foundation of true and substantial joy.
 
If this sequel to the '' Advice,^' following in thewake of its humble predecessor, shall but serve —like the life-boat in the storm — to rescue fromimpending danger, any who were induced by theformer to st^er for the port of peace, it will affordits author the most heart-felt satisfaction*J.
