In the words of the author, this short account of the people called Quakers was written: “First, as a standing testimony to that ever blessed Truth in the inward parts, with which God, in my youthful time, visited my soul, and for the sense and love of which I was made willing, in no ordinary way, to relinquish the honours and interests of the world. Secondly, as a testimony for that despised people, that God has in His great mercy gathered and united by His own blessed Spirit in the holy profession of it; whose fellowship I value above all worldly greatness. And thirdly, in love and honour to the memory of that worthy servant of God, George Fox.” This publication is the complete and unedited edition that first appeared in 1694 as a preface to the original version of George Fox’s valuable journal.
