IN THE BIBLICAL REPOSITORY, APRIL, 1833,

BY HENRY J. RIPLEY,
Professor of Biblical Literature in the Newton Theological Institution.
LINCOLN, EDMANDS & CO.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1833,

Samuel N. Dickinson, Printer,
THE performance, which is examined in the following pages, is an article which was published in the Biblical Repository at Andover. It may very naturally be asked, why the Examination was not given to the public through the same medium, so that the same class of readers might have each performance. In reply to such an inquiry, I have to say, that I sought for a place in the Repository, but my application was unsuccessful.
The following note and the reply to it, will furnish a full view of this matter.
NEWTON, JULY 24, 1833. To the Editor of the Biblical Repository: DEAR SIR,
There is an article by me in a state of forwardness, intended to occupy a place in the number of the Biblical Repository for October, 1833. It is an Examination of Professor Stuart's article on the Mode of Christian Baptism, which appeared in the April number of the work. It would probably require between forty and sixty pages, perhaps more. As intended for the Repository, its spirit and language will not, I trust, be unworthy of your publication.
