The Titles of the Books, from which the questions for Penitents preparatory to Confession at page 151, &c., are taken, are not given for sufficient reasons.
| Extracts, having the usual signs of a quotation, consist, in some instances, of two sentences combined for the sake of convenience; but no alteration in the sense, so far as is known, has been made.
TAs it was not possible to print the references to the various Works quoted from, the Author begs to say, that in case any reference should be particularly wished for, it may be obtained, if, with the request for it, a stamped and properly directed envelope be sent to his address, Rev. Thos. O. BEEMAN, Cranbrook, Kent.
The Author will be particularly obliged if the Reader will be good enough
p. 38, 1. 13, to write Latimer, Bishop of Worcester, for Ridley, Bishop of London ;
p. 53, 1. 21, to write said, for says;
p. 134, l. 18, to write says, for goes on to say : And in the copies from which it is omitted
p. 31, 1. 15, to insert of after tendency.
[ENTERED AT STATIONERS' HALL.]
The appearance of the following Notes in their present form may be thought to require some explanation.
At the conclusion of some Lectures on Ritualism, the Writer was unexpectedly asked to publish them. As the Lectures were not written, this was not in his power, but a long list of Subscribers' names having been put into his hands by a zealous friend of Protestantism, accompanied with the expression of an opinion that their publication might be of some service to the cause of Scriptural, and, therefore, Protestant Truth, it seemed to be his duty to do what he could.
He may, perhaps, be pardoned for mentioning another consideration which weighed with him. Oft recurring and wearying indisposition has for a long period prevented his doing what he would. He was, therefore, very reluctant, even to appear unwilling, to make an effort to do what little might be thought to be in his power on behalf of the Common Faith."
He accordingly proposed to gather together such of his Notes as might be comprised in about forty pages : this proposition was acceded to,—the result is before the Reader.
Instead of some forty pages, there are one hundred and seventy. The additional matter (given without any charge to the subscribers) will, it is hoped, be a sufficient explanation of any seeming delay in the issue of the Notes.
Had the Writer contemplated a publication of the size of the present, it would have assumed a different form, and been issued in a different way, but as the Title of "Notes" admitted of expansion, and as the course of events deepened his conviction of the importance of the present controversy, he, in the course of compilation, added, from time to time, as other engagements would permit, notices of such matters as seemed likely to throw light upon it.
