Excerpt from The Causes and the Cure of Puseyism, or the Elementary Principles of Roman Error Detected in the Liturgy, Offices, Homilies: And Usages of the Episcopal Churches of England and America Being an Episcopalian, the author of this work has written with a desire, not to injure, but to benefit, the Episcopal church. He has attacked nothing essential to its spread in the world. On the contrary, he has assailed those things only which are destructive Of its interests, and which cast a mildew upon all its prospects of use fulness in this country. In a word, he has attacked those things only which he firmly believes to be essentially popish, and which engender popery. These, when at tempting to write on tractarianism, his christian honor, as well as his protestant instincts, have compelled him to attack. His Episcopalian friends will please to Observe that he is not assailing them. Far otherwise. They are his brethren, fastened to him by the bonds which surround a common household. Their interests are his interests. He has no private or public wrongs to avenge; and if he had, vengeance is not his. He has the kindest feel ings towards his brethren; and in their presence he now washes his hands Of any intent except that of doing.
