SYNOD REVIEW:

A Copy of the Opinion expressed by the Committee oj General Synod, after inspecting the Manuscript of the Memoir.

"The undersigned, having at the request of the author, and in compliance with the object of their appointment, as a Committee of Synod, carefully perused the manuscript Memoir of the late Professor Livingston, prepared by the Rev. Dr. Gunn; have much pleasure in bearing their decided testimony to the able manner in which the task has been accomplished. With much well directed labour, and in a manner that will not fail to prove gratifying to the church, the author has reduced to order a large amount of interesting and important matter."

"The volume now about to be presented to the Public, contains, it is believed, a faithful picture of the revered individual, whose eventful life it portrays; and at the same time exhibits all the most prominent features of the history of the Reformed Dutch Church in this country; together with valuable passing notices of many of her most distinguished sons, who have from time to time entered into rest."

"The work, we doubt not, will be perused with interest; and regarded as an important addition to the biography of those whose "memory is blessed." With prayer for its usefulness, we do hereby cordially recommend it to the patronage of the christian community and especially of every Minister, Consistory, and Member of the Reformed Dutch Church."

It was, indeed, due to his precious memory, that the Church, whose ministry he so long adorned as a star of the first magnitude, and to the promotion of whose best interests, from the dawn of celestial light in his soul, until his lamented decease embracing a period of more than half a century he was so warmly, unremittingly, and successfully
