Doctrine " in two volumes. He was too sagacious not to foresee and forestall the criticism which his work would encounter in that " it be- tokens subjective qualities unduly for a historical production." Under the same impression, the reviewer, with caustic twang, says the work is not so exactly Dr. Shedd's History of Doctrine as the " History of Dr. Shedd's Doctrine." The remark may be meant for stigma, it may be taken as compliment, for, if a sincere man set out to compose an ac- count of the Christian Doctrine, excluding in his preface " the latitudi- narian drift of thoughtf' what could he exhibit but that which he believed to be true ?
