Resting-places is chiefly compiled from English sources. Many of the best known and most valued forms of devotion have been, for that very reason, excluded. It seemed better to seek new and unfamiliar treasures, than to re-print what had already been edited so frequently and so well. This may account for the fact that the present work does not contain ten pages in common with any of the most popular books of devotion now in use.

Many of the hymns are new or unfamiliar, though a few favourites could not be passed by. My brother's verses, marked by his initials—T. B.P.--will, it is hoped, add to the usefulness of the book.

There is an apparent lack of intercessions marked as such. Those which seemed most important are added to the short forms of prayer arranged for private and family use in a week.

The book is divided into a number of short Chapters for the sake of more easy reference. Each “Part,” however, is complete in itself, and is intended to supply a short manual of its subject.

The “form" and type of the book were chosen with a view to its being bound up with a convenient edition of the Book of Common Prayer; that its Instructions and Devotions might lead up to and prepare for the words of the Church.
