Page cliv - Church. Evil deeds, the imagination of which may perhaps have dimly floated through our minds in our darkest moments, are here tabulated and reduced to a system. It is hard to see how anyone could busy himself with such literature and not be the worse for it.
Page xxviii - To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech thee, a place of refreshment, light and peace.
