IN compiling this Manual, the several different continental editions have been consulted and compared. In all of them the Rule is essentially the same, but in some an abridgment only is given. In the present Manual it is printed in full, with some explanatory notes.

To have given a more complete collection of prayers and devotions would have increased the book to an inconvenient size, besides adding to its cost. For the same reason the "Little Office of the B.V.M." has not been included. This is already printed in such convenient forms, that the want can easily be supplied.

The manuscript has been submitted to the Franciscan communities, and other members of the order in England, and has received their approbation.
