Excerpt from The Poetical Works of John and Charles Wesley, Vol. 7: Reprinted From the Originals, With the Last Corrections of the Authors; Together With the Poems of Charles Wesley Not Before Published
IN these Hymns for the Use of Families, as in two former there is a refer... ence at the commencement to Mr. Lampe's volume of tunes, the first twenty-four hymns being adapted to the several tunes contained in that volume, and following each other in nearly the same order. In the former publications the reference was avowed; but not in this 3 the reason possibly being that after the lapse of twenty years the tunes were sufficiently known in Methodist circles.
The Editor cannot deny himself the pleasure of inserting here a just and beautiful criticism on this work of his author, from the pen of a venerable friend whose name will be had in honour as long as the memory of his sound theology, cultivated taste, pro found wisdom, and brilliant wit are perpetuated.
