before they use this book.
As we are again called to the grateful task of preparing another edition of the Visitatio Infirmorum for the press, we avail ourselves of the opportunity of expressing our sincere gratification that the demand for the two editions which have already appeared, affords us grounds of hope and of thankfulness that the work has been assistant to the ministrations of our brethren, and to the comfort and consolation of the sick.
In compliance with the principles put forth in the Advertisement to the Second Edition, we have continued our endeavours to make such improvements as our own experience or the valued communications of our brethren suggested to us. The additions are principally a short Office in time of Pestilence, an Office to be said some time after the Communion of the Sick, and some prayers preparatory to administering it.
