Rev. HENRY W. HAWKES, Waterloo, Liverpool
by the late Dr. W. B. ROBERTSON of Irvine.
Mr. T. H. GILL has also allowed me to purchase the use of many of his hymns, and permission to use a hymn by the late Miss CHRISTINA G. ROSSETTI has been obtained on their usual terms from the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. I have taken much trouble to avoid the infringement of any proprietary rights, but if I have unwittingly transgressed in this particular, I crave beforehand the kind indulgence of the owner. Few, I am sure, are the hymn writers who are not prepared to re-echo the words of Dr. Horatius Bonar, spoken in reference to his own hymns: “I consider them not as my property, but the property of the Church of God.”
For assistance in correcting proofs and for many
suggestions, I am much indebted to my friends, Mr. JOHN BROOKE GREENWOOD of Manchester and Mr. WILLIAM WHITWELL of Balham.
Mr. B. SYKES, Organist and Choirmaster of Trinity Church, has revised the pointing of the Psalms and Canticles.
