that but for them this tribute would hardly have ap-
peared. With a generosity as rare as it is praise-
worthy, they have undertaken to publish the work in
the best style of theirart, ata low price, and without
any pecuniary risk to Sister Allen; and, indeed, in all
their transactions with her they have given abundant
proof that men can carry into business the benevolent
spirit of pure and undefiled religion.
It only remains to be said that whatever profits
arise from the sale of this book go to the wife and
children of its lamented author, and that should suffi-
cient encouragement be given, a companion volume
containing the letters and miscellaneous productions of
Bro. Allen may in due time be issued.
