Excerpt from The Church of England Before the Reformation
It is with pleasure that, in response to a kind wish of the Author's, I commend the present work to the careful and candid attention of my brother Churchmen.
A pressure of duties exceptionally heavy has made it impossible for me to go through the volume with the detailed care which I could wish to bring to it. But I know enough already of Mr. Hague's literary work to be assured of his scrupulous desire to be accurate in matters of fact, and just in matters of inference. And I have made proof enough of this book to feel confident that he has done his utmost to carry out that desire in its pages, and with very valuable results.
As regards the main position of the book, its thesis so to speak, my own convictions have long taken the general line which it lays down.
