Notes: "The following pages are drawn from a very old and obscure work, of which the real good sense was hidden amidst a series of speculative points, and ridiculous allusions. The dereliction of principle so often unhappily manifested by that class to which this book is addressed, and the deviation from established good customs, into which the present age is fallen, have led to the attempt to save from oblivion that part of this book which appeared worthy of it: and the author has only to hope this feeble effort may not be altogether useless to young apprentices."--Preface, p. [5].
