ATURE'S TESTIMOY TO ATURE'S GOD.FOUR SERMOS, PREACHED I THE CHURCH OF THEATIVITY, PHILADELPHIA.BY Wm EWTO,Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1873, byTHESE Sermons arose from a felt wantof the times. They were preachedwithout manuscript, and were writ-ten out after their dehvery The exactorder of thought and illustration — and, inmost instances, the precise form of expres-sion — is here preserved. The Sermonsare, on the printed page, pretty much asthey came from my lips.Members of the Church and Congrega-tion, to whose judgment I am accustomedto defer, thought, that as they did good tothe congregation reached by the voice,they would be equally beneficial to thelarger congregation reached by the Press.Therefore they are herePhiladelphia, April 30.I.
