Excerpt From Text: THE OXFORD MOVEMENT TWELVE YEARS 1833-1845 THE revision of these papers was a task to which the late Dean of St. Pauls gave all the work he could during the last months of his life. At the time of his death, fourteen of the papers had, so far as can be judged, received the form in which he wished them to be published and these, of course, are printed here exactly as he left them. One more he had all but prepared for publication the last four were mainly in the condition in which, six years ago, he had them privately put into type, for the convenience of his own further work upon them, and for the reading of two or three intimate friends. Those into whose care his work has now come have tried, with the help of his pencilled notes, to bring these four papers as nearly as they caiinto the form which they believe he would have had them take. But it has seemed better to leave unaltered a sentence here and there to which he might have given a more perfect shape, rather than to run the risk of swerving from the thought which was in his mind. It is possible that the Dean would have made con siderable changes in the preface which is here printed for only that which seems the first draft of it has been found. But even thus it serves to show his wish and purpose for the work he had in hand and it has therefore been thought best to publish it.
