DANA'S LETTERS.

* Letters addressed to Relatives and Friends, chiefly in Reply to Arguments in Support of the Doctrine of the Trinity. By MARY S. B. DANA, Author of the Southern and Northern Harps, &c. 12mo. pp. 318. Cloth. 62c.

"It is one of the most readable books of controversial theology with which we have ever met. Its argument is relieved of all dryness, by being colored with the feelings of a woman who is anxious to justify to her nearest friends a course which is very painful to them, but which she feels bound in conscience to take. To any one interested in the subject, it is well worth the reading, and, if we may judge from ourselves, whoever begins it is not likely to lay it down till he sees the end.”.

Examiner.
