“ The greatest danger, that ever the Common Prayer-book had, was the indifferency and indevotion of them that used it but as a common blessing."

JEREMY TAYLOR, vol. VII. p. 312.

“ If any man, who shall desire a more particular account of the several alterations in any part of the Liturgy, shall take the pains to compare the present Book with the former; we doubt not but the reason of the change may easily appear."
