TO HIS GRACE
LORD JOHN GEORGE BERESFORD,
PRIMATE, &c. &c.
The subject of the following compilation, most respectfully dedicated to your Grace, the Editors believe to be, under whatever aspect it is regarded, of the gravest possible interest. It is a faithful exposure of the system of social, moral, and religious instruction, adopted by the Church of Rome, for her Ecclesiastics and Laity, enforced in the authoritative standards of her theology, and painfully illustrated both in the past history and present condition of our distracted and unhappy country
The Editors are not so happy as to know that your Grace will pronounce a favourable judgment on their publication. They feel that the most appropriate tribute to offer you, would be one on which public savor was undivided. They cannot lay claim to such a recommendation;—but, conscious that their labors have been conducted in a spirit
of which they trust your Grace would approve, and confidently appealing to the invectives of unscrupulous adversaries, (who, aspersing their motives, have uniformly left their arguments unassailed,) for a tacit but satisfactory acknowledgment, that the statements are not chargeable with error or exaggeration; they allow themselves to hope, that unmerited calumny has not disentitled them to the honor of thus publicly testifying their respect for the eminent station in which your Grace has been providentially placed, and for the high qualities by which, as men of all parties confess, you have been enabled to uphold and adorn it.
