Excerpt from History of the Presbyterians in England: Their Rise, Decline, and Revival

This, though a Sectional, will not, it is hoped, be found a Sec tarian history. Written, no doubt, under deep and slowly formed convictions which the Author has not been careful to conceal, he has made every effort not to allow these to warp his judgment or embitter his style. The Book has been pre pared at the request of the Presbyterian Church of England's Law and Historical Documents Committee, over which the late Professor Leone Levi so long presided; but the Author alone is responsible for everything about the work, except the finan cial arrangements, of which he has been generously and eu tirely relieved. That such unexpectedly large numbers of copies should have been subscribed for on special terms, seems to indicate a widespread and public-spirited interest on the subject in many quarters, and gives reason for indulging the hope that the book may help to supply a felt need. N 0 one is more aware than the writer himself of the many possible short comings which may attach to his labours but he has not been insensible to the honour done him by his brethren, nor to the obligations laid on him to meet it. Intelligent and discrimi nating readers will speedily find, that while some portions of the work have required a considerable amount of research, other parts have been compiled from a variety of more or less easily accessible sources, to which attention is called in their proper place.
