To all who may enter upon the office of Churchwarden with an earnest desire conscientiously to discharge their important functions, and, by upholding the fabrics of the Church, by preserving due reverence within the Consecrated Precincts, and by checking to the utmost all gross impiety and immorality in their parishes, to promote the glory of God and the well-being of their fellow-parishioners, this book is respectfully dedicated, by

THE AUTHOR.
