It is not intended that the minister should be confined to the
chapters selected in the above table, nor that every chapter should
be read through. The minister is at liberty to change the Lesson
whenever he thinks proper so to do; and also to read a portion
only of the appointed chapter, if it is not convenient to read the
whole.

The appointed Lessons from the New Testament are to be
found under the daily Collects. The Gospel is to be read in the
morning, and the Epistle in the evening.

Proper Psalms for particular days are to be found by referring
to the Table of Contents.
