"During the period of nearly forty years, in which he was theological professor, the author had an exercise, for the most part weekly, in Mental and Moral Science; as a transition from college work and a recapitulation of juvenile studies. The lectures thus delivered were the basis of the succinct manual now made public. All its parts were thrown into a shape suitable for the printing, except the closing chapters on the Being and Attributes of God, and the duties resulting from the relation of the Creator and creature. A casual inspection will be enough to show any reader that this is a book of elements; laying down principles, dealing the statement of fundamental questions, and marking limits around the science. It does not descend therefore to the more usual and far easier work of gathering, naming, and tabling the human duties. This labour he did not undervalue; indeed it was part of his course of instructions; and his unfinished manuscripts contain large contributions towards a separate work in this kind, embracing even all the range of duties which are properly Christian and even ecclesiastical. But the treatise now presented was intended to lay foundations and elucidate principles; in other words it is upon the Philosophy of Morals"--Preface.

This was originally released in 1827 by an anonymous author simply called A Village Pastor with an outstanding Introductory Essay by Archibald Alexander. It went on to be one of the best selling books by the American Tract Society. It was also published in the UK by the Religious Tract Society of London where it became very popular. "To the lambs of Christ's flock, whom Peter was enjoined by the Good Shepherdf to feed, I dedicate this little book. The letters which compose it were written to instruct one of their number, the daughter of a highly valued friend. Since they are now made public, it is the ardent prayer of the author, that they may comfort and edify many more."--The Author. "The following letters are well calculated to turn the attention of the Christian public to the importance of diligence and punctuality in performing the duties of the closet. They were forwarded to me by an esteemed young clergyman, who is settled as a pastor in a distant and retired village. These letters are seasonable, judicious, and pious, and that as they are written in an animated style they will be extensively perused by the young." - Archilbald Alexander
