'The history of the following work is briefly as follows: In the summer of 1837, I prepared and preached to my people two discourses, in which I attempted to prove that Universalism is entirely a modern invention, and in its tendencies entirely opposed to godliness. These discourses, by the unanimous advice of the Association to which I belong, were, in the summer of 1838, given to the public. Their favorable reception, the advice of several prudent and enlightened men, together with the necessity of publishing something in reply to certain Reviews by Universalists, have induced me to publish another edition in the present form - a form in which it was thought they would be more acceptable to readers in general. The Second Part, it will be seen, consists of an examination of certain reviews of the First. The First Part is, in substance, the same as when originally published. A few paragraphs, with some notes, have been added: two or three which were deemed unnecessary, have been expunged, and such other revision made as criticism required. A. ROYCE.
