“It has often occurred to me, as something wonderful, that, amongst the vast variety of books which are to be met with, on the important subject of Religion, there should be wanted a manual for the information and direction of the Minister in his daily intercourse with sick persons and other members of his flock.
“Having been in the habit, then, for several years, of remarking this defect of instruction with regard to practical divinity, and the whole business of a Parish Priest, and having myself, meanwhile, been thrown perpetually into the most interesting and awful scenes with my own Parishioners, I determined at length to take up my pen, and to commit to paper whatever having passed under my per. sonal observation, might be most likely to be useful to others of the same profession.
"I had no thought originally of doing more than assist my younger brethren of the clerical order, who might be appointed to the management of large parishes, without time or opportunities to prepare themselves in an adequate manner for so difficult and momentous an undertaking: But, in proceeding with my work, 1 began to flatter myself with the notion that I may possibly both amuse and instruct every description of readers. Many persons may be tempted, upon the recommendation of the clergy, to peruse the book ; and may find unexpectedly their fancy pleased, their knowledge increased, and their hearts touched and improved.”
