After my mum died recently myself and my 2 brothers have been clearing through her house and amongst many things we have found this book, an original copy. It is not in the best of conditions but the most intriguing this is that on the inside cover has the following hand written detail.
William Foxwells Book, 1810,
with a further hand written detail of
(appears to say) Miles Matthews 1846.
Furthermore a couple of pages later it repeats in handwriting;
William Foxwell, His Book 1810.
it would strongly suggest that this book is an original from its publising date of 1808.
we are naturally stunned to find it. If anyone has an interest in knowing more etc then please email me at petehut@talktalk.net.

Page 128 - For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.
