to say

If it be asked why I have thought it desirable to place before this Protestant country a book from the pen of a Roman Catholic relating to religious education, I can only answer that though the critical reader would readily detect the Author's creed, yet I did not see anything in it likely to spread opinions repugnant to the leading Articles of the Faith of all Protestant Churches, to which I would be permitted

I am most sincerely attached. If this little book should be found in any degree to facilitate to the rising generation the acquisition of sound babits of reasoning along with the knowledge of Grammar; and above all, if it should lead mothers and teachers to imbue their instructions with a more religious tone, while avoiding the danger of an irrelevant introduction of religious observations, I shall feel amply rewarded for any trouble the publication may have involved.
