The Editor of the EvangeLIST would merely say to his readers, that he does not expect to be able to furnish them with a work worthy to be admired for its literary excellence. If he can furnish one executed in a style, sufficiently pure and elevated, to render it acceptable to men of cultivated taste, and at the same time, so adapted to the state of common readers, as to be useful to unlettered Christians, who, above all things, love “the sincere milk of the word,” his highest ambition will be gratified. He is, however, aware of the difficulty of accomplishing even this. Indeed, the diversity of tastes, which exist in the various classes of the community, is so great, and in many things so contradictory, that to please the whole, with the same thing, is impossible. He suggests the idea merely to show his readers, how much he must rely on their candor and liberality, in forming their estimate of his work, while he spares himself no pains to deserve their patronage.
