RICHARD MANT, D.D. M.R.I.A.

BISHOP OF DOWN AND CONNOR.

How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace, and
bring glad tidings of good things! Rom. x. 15.

And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of
bonds and imprisonment:

They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with
the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute,
afflicted, tormented;

(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in
mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. Heb. xi. 36, 37, 38.
