Excerpt from The Works of the Rev. Robert Hawker, D.D., Late Vicar of Charles, Plymouth, Vol. 3 of 10: With a Memoir of His Life and Writings
The Zion's Pilgrim hath not come within my view for many years. Indeed from the time it first made its appearance, in the little periodical work, called Zion's Trumpet, I have seldom seen it; and most probably, but for the request of my book seller, in wishing me to introduce the present new edition with a short preface, it would not have fallen under my inspection now.
Upon the revision of it, I see much, very much to be humbled for before God; and had I the service to perform again, many pages might be added of improvement, and not a few of cor rection take place; but these would make it a new work; for which the purchasers of the former editions would not be pleased; and my advanced life and daily labours would not well admit.
