By the desire of the Rt. Rev. Dr. Murphy, tho R C. Bishop of Cork, I have attentively perused the Manuscript of a Book entitled The UrsuMne Manual; or, a Collection of Prayers, Spiritual Exercises, fyc, interspersed with the various Instructions necessary for forming Youth to the Practice of solid Piety,

The fervent Piety, interesting Instructions, and useful Doctrinal Expositions contained in this Work, are exlvemely valuable; and few books appear to me better fitted than it is tc advance the Cause of Religion, Morality, and Virtue. It >s calculated, in my opinion, not only to be serviceaoie in Religious Communities, but likewise in Private Families, and as a DevotioJa Book to the Faithful in general.
