Art. XVIII.

A Sermon, delivered at Newburyport,
on the
22d February, 1800. By
the Rev
. John Boddily, Minister
in the Second Presbyterian Church
in said town
. 8vo. pp. 15. New-
buryport
. Blunt. 1800.

THIS sermon, on the same oc-
casion, stands, in our opinion,
several grades lower, with regard to
literary merit, than those noticed in
the two last articles. Mr. B.'s man-
ner is serious and popular; but he
is neither rich in sentiment, nor ac-
curate in expression. We doubt,
also, whether frequent and long
quotations of poetry ought to be in-
troduced into the pulpit.
