TO KIRWAN'S FRIEND
THE REV. WILLIAM BUEL SPRAGUE, D.D.,
Es affectionately Enscríbed.
THE author of this volume thinks it proper to state that with him its preparation has been solely a labor of love, performed at the solicitation of the surviving family of his lamented friend, to whom all the avails of the work exclusively belong.
The rich materials furnished in the manuscripts of Dr. Murray, and in the reminiscences by his friends, have made a memorial of rare interest and value, to which the biographer could add little or nothing. The strange and romantic incidents in the childhood and youth of the subject of these memoirs, his early and wonderful rescue from the wiles of a false religion, his rapid mental and moral development, his brilliant career and well-earned fame, and, above all, his vast usefulness as a pastor, preacher, and author, make him an illustrious example worthy of record for the encouragement of the young, the edification of the Church, and the praise of Divine Grace.
