Scotland is is in a ferment respecting the occupancy of the Hebrew Chair in the University of Edinburgh.

And as the sentiments and arguments which you use, and maintain in these several publications on that sub- ject, are such as I am fully persuaded have not the authority of the ' Word of God' to rest upon, but are contrary to it, and consequently of a delusive and ruin- ous tendency to the souls of mankind—I shall in this letter, and in any others that I may find it necessary to address to you, take the liberty to test them by this unerring standard, with as much clearness and brevity as ever I can. In the beginning of the first of these publications, you say that the ordinance of circumcision has been superseded in the Christian Church by that of Bap- tism. Now, Sir, I not only question the truth of this assertion of yours, but positiv...
