clxxx.—The text of this hymn is from Dr. Raffles' Collection, whom I understand (on Mr. Sedgwick's authority) to have had it from the author.
clxxxii.—This, and No. ccxcvi. are by Dr. Ray Palmer, a living American writer. The text has been compared with authentic American copies, and found correct.
clxxxvi.—Eight out of eleven four-line stanzas, which constitute the latter part of The Covenant and Confidence of Faith, in Baxter's Poems (Pickering's edition, 1821 ; page 71). The stanzas omitted are the first, third, and fifth, at the page referred to.
clxxxix.—Four stanzas out of eight. The hymn is No. 32 in John Austin's Offices. The stanzas omitted are the first three, and the " Gloria" at the end.

cxci.—Five stanzas out of eight. Those omitted are Wesley's fifth, sixth, and seventh. The hymn is at page 30 of the Hymns and Sacred Poems (Second Edition ; Bristol, 1743).
cxciii.—The last stanza is wanting in Miss Elliott's Hours of Sorrow cheered and comforted (Fourth Edition, 1849 ; page 136). It is, however, as I have ascertained, the concluding stanza of the hymn, as originally composed by the authoress.
cxciv.—From a memoir of the Life of Oberlin. published anony­mously in 1830 (London, Ball). The translator is Mrs. Daniel Wilson, of Islington ; who has kindly permitted me to give her name. It is very doubtful if the original is Oberlin's, though its true source has not been ascer­tained.
cxcv.—Five out of ten stanzas {Theodosia's Poems ; vol. 1, p. 134, of the edition of 1780). The stanzas omitted are the third to the seventh inclusive.
