In sending forth a Third Edition of “Chilcot on Evil Thoughts," I heartily thank Almighty God that I have reason to know that it has been of much comfort to many poor afflicted souls. The two former impressions have been spread far and wide. The late Bishop Wainwright of New York expressed himself greatly pleased with it, and took it with him to the United States, and it has reached our most distant colonies. Little did the writer of the author's epitaph think that the words on his monument, αποθανών έτι λαλείται, would be so singularly fulfilled. The present Edition has been printed in a more popular form, and a few notes have been added. May God continue His blessing!
