Excerpt from The Primitive Saints: And the See of Rome
I have been asked by my dear and learned friend, Father Puller, to write a short letter by way of Introduction to the new edition Of his excellent book, the Primitive Saints and the See of Rome.
I am very glad to know that the book has been so much approved that a third edition is asked for.
There is no real need for any commendatory letter from me. Father Puller's accurate learning and his fearless honesty in argument are sufficient to commend all that he writes. Nevertheless, as I wrote a short Preface to the first edition, and some considerable additions have been made to the book, it was desired that I should see what the additions are, in order that the original Preface, if possible, might stand.
The additions in the new edition are considerable, and Show a great amount of careful work, including replies to such criticisms on the two earlier editions as had naturally come from Roman sources. But there is no change in the line of argument, or in the conclusion. The additions consist principally of certain new Lectures With Appendices, and a large number of explanatory notes. Attention may be specially called to Appendix M, which deals with The Principle of Development.
