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."

Committee of General Synod.
