However, it was paged separately, so the decision was made to code it separately as well. The following publishing information as well as pertinent portions of the Remarks of the Publishing Committee and Table of Contents are copied from the beginning of The First Report document.

“Almighty God, the Giver of wisdom, without whose help resolutions are vain, without whose blessing study is ineffectual; enable me, I beseech Thee, to attain such knowledge as may quality me to render Thee acceptable service. Amen.”
REMARKS OF THE PUBLISHING COMMITTEE.
The discourse on the Millennium contains matter of high interest drawn from original fountains; and seems completely to overset the commonly received doctrine on that subject. For it must be confessed by intelligent divines, that the popular doctrine of the millennium is a modern one, totally unknown to the primitive and martyr church: so modern that it has never a place in the formula of the faith of any church. Catholic, Greek, Roman, or Protestant: but all their creeds involve the contrary: a doctrine alike opposed to the divine economy with all past ages, and opposed to the promises relating to this world, and to the destiny of man;-the law and the prophets uniting with the gospel to teach the vanity of this life and the reality of the resurrection and of the world to come.
