I do not mean this so much of the present Liturgy, (whose modern language however newer translations and valuable improvements are hereinto as of that original and much better Liturgy which our pious Reformers, upon mature considera tion and consultation of the old books of our religion, drew up, and made use of in the first and best period of the Reformation, under King Edward VI.
