Dedicatory Epistles, Introductions, Prefatory matter relating to the descendants of Bishop Hopkins, and Editorial notices addressed to the critical and inquisitive reader, have been omitted also.
The Editor has embraced the Opportunity furnished by a re publication of the best edition of the Author's works, to make some amendments and improvements in a direction pointed out by Mr. Pratt, and in which he proceeded to some extent. The work had reached the middle of the second volume before it came into our hands. Hence, all the changes adopted could not be made in that part of the publication.
The typography has been changed, and the page made more pleasing by the curtailment of the use of Italics.
Scripture quotations have been restored. To exact agreement with the standard text, and their quotation indicated in the usual way.
