The first thousand copies of this Manual were sold Within a month after publication; and the Second and Third Editions followed too rapidly to permit of changes in the plates. The author has received several hundred letters, many of them making most valuable suggestions, which have served as the basis of a care ful revision. The few liturgical forms in the First Edition evoked a large number of requests for additional orders of service, and for forms for marriages, funerals and other special occasions. In response to those requests an entire new section has been added to the' present edition. The services here presented contain some that are time-honored, and others that have never appeared in print before. But all have grown up out of actual experience and have proved their value. The author heartily thanks the multitude of friends Whose suggestions have helped in the improvement of this book; and he will welcome further suggestions.
