The matter it contains was prepared as a part of a larger and perhaps more important historical work, on which I am now engaged, and which I hope will soon be in print. Happening to show some of the chapters to a friend, in whose judgment I had great confidence, he said to me: Why not publish these chapters as a separate book? The matter they contain is only remotely related to that of the main book, and the two should not appear together. It happened that my own mind was running in the same direction, and had nearly arrived at the same conclusion. The publication of this book, in its present form, is, therefore, mainly due to that interview. It is, as it were, a leaf torn from another book.The chief reason for writing so fully, or at all, about the Covenanters is given in the opening sentences of Chapter IV of this book.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
