Excerpt from The Ursuline Manual, or a Collection of Prayers and Spiritual Exercises: Interspersed With the Various Instructions Necessary for Forming Youth to the Practice of Solid Piety
The intrinsic merits of this Prayer Book, and the high place it deservedly holds in pub ... lic estimation, have induced the Publisher to reprint it in this city. Though the work was originally intended for the use of the young ladies educated in the famous Ursuline Con vent in the city of Cork, yet many editions of it quickly succeeded each other, both in Dublin and in London: a fact which alone bespeaks its worth; and a mere perusal of the table of its contents will show, that no book of the same kind contains a greater amount of pious and useful reading. The Publisher has the satisfaction to state, that no pains have been spared to adapt the work to the peculiar circumstances of this country, and that it comes before the public with strong claims on their attention. It has been care fully revised by the Very Reverend Divine whose name appears in the title page, and is approved of by the Spiritual Authority of this Diocese.
