Excerpt from Lectures on the History of the Church of Scotland, Vol. 1 of 2: From the Reformation to the Revolution Settlement
It has often been the subject of regret to others, as it was to himself, that the pressure of engrossing public duties prevented the Author from accomplishing a pur pose for which, by the concurrent testimony of those of his contemporaries who were best entitled to give an opinion, he was so eminently qualified and it is due to his memory to say, that the present work, however valuable, and although presented in a form perhaps more adapted for the general reader, in many respects differs in its character from such a contribution to the history of ecclesiastical affairs in this country as he him self desired to give to the world.
