I HAVB read the “FAMILY PRAYER Book," and do not find anything in it repugnant to the Faith, Morality, or approved Discipline of the Catholic Church. It is a work of high character; combining solid devotion and fervent piety with that judicious selection of pious exercises which is 80 peculiarly necessary at the present moment, and that chaste simplicity and primitive dignity of expression which ever befits the communications of man with God in Prayeras they every where characterize the communications of God with man in the inspired writings.

I consider the Family Prayer Book” G paluable addition to our works of piety; and, as such, I approve of it within the limits of my jurisdiction. + PETER AUGUSTINE, BISHOP OP S10A,

Vicar Apostolic of the Western District.
