on Sunday-School Books.")

AMERICAN UNITARIAN ASSOCIATION.

TO THE SECOND EDITION.
The present edition of the “Lives of the Twelve Apostles” will, it is hoped, be found an improvement on the first. The work has been considerably enlarged, and its form has, in some respects, been changed. A Life of John the Baptist is now prefixed to the other lives, and a Life of the Apostle Matthias is added at the close. The Notes, which, in the first edition, were printed at the end of the volume, have either been incorporated with the text, or printed in their several places as foot-notes. Authorities have been reconsulted, and critical conclusions reconsidered.
It has been suggested to the author, from more than one respected source, that lives of Saint Paul, and of the Evangelists Mark and Luke, would be a desirable addition to the biographies
