Excerpt from Judgment and Mercy: For Afflicted Souls; Or, Meditations, Soliloquies, and Prayers

In this edition, the original text of Quarles is faith fully adhered to except in about ten or twelve places, where some verbal corrections became necessary, from the palpable corruption of the copy. The orthography' is modernized; in justification of which (if justifica tion be requisite) I avail myself of the remarks of Mr. Burnett, in the Preface to his Specimens of English Prose Writers.f To prevent any repellent efl'ect to the general reader says he, it was thought advisa ble to adopt the modern orthography. The ancient spelling, indeed, was quite unsettled, and in some de gree arbitrary; the same author often writing the same word in two or three different ways. To many readers this might have been a source of obscurity.
