TO THE

RIGHT REVEREND WILLIAM WHITE, D.D.,

Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocess of Pennsylvania, and Senior Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the

United States.

Right REVEREND AND Dear Sir,

If it were in my power to consult my brethren of the clergy, I am sure that all would name you as the individual to whom a work, concerning any part of the Protestant Episcopal church in this country should most properly be inscribed. To this consideration of propriety, allow me to add, that I, at least, find another in the ready kindness and advice with which you have furthered my purposes, and encouraged my efforts in the prosecution of this work.

I beg leave, therefore, to offer it as the humble tribute of affectionate respect justly due to one who for more than half a century has watched the progress of the church in America; and who to the piety which becomes a prelate adds the learning of a scholar, and the courtesy of a gentleman. With affectionate veneration,

I am, sir, your grateful friend and servant,

THE AUTHOR.
