The following notes have been used by the writer in conducting Mothers' Meetings amongst the poorer classes, and it has been suggested that they may be useful to other ladies engaged in a similar work.
It will be seen that they are merely skeletons, and will require to be filled up by each person who makes use of them. Thus it will be necessary to turn to the texts referred to, and to enlarge on each head as familiarly as possible, illustrating it by simple, and telling facts.
If this is done, and the subjects well studied, it will often be found, that, although each subject has been generally compressed into one chapter, it is better to take one, two, or three heads, as affording sufficient matter for the conversation of a single evening, rather than too hastily to go over the whole section.
It will be a cause for thankfulness, if these short notes may be the means of leading any mothers to search the Scriptures more diligently with reference to their own especial duties.
