ADVERTISEMENT.

This work is not mine; it is that of a man whose name lives enshrined in the hearts of English Protestants-of John Fox, who himself, through the mercy of God, escaped the flames of martyrdom, that he might become the faithful chronicler of events which it was his lot to witness. The beacon-light, kindled to consume the bodies of our blessed martyrs, was destined never to go out: and to Fox was the privilege granted, of instrumentally perpetuating those sacred fires.

The exigency of these trying times has called for a republication of the original work: but the voluminous work of Fox being scarcely suited to very general reading, it was deemed right to furnish the female and the youthful portion of our people with this abstract of what it especially concerns us, as a Protestant church, universally to know.
