Praise for the Print Edition
Next to that most primitive and sacred history of all, the records of which are only to be found in Scripture, there is hardly one subject of historical inquiry more interesting than that of the early and singular Church of the Vallenses of Piedmont. The particular object of Miss Willyams is highly commendable, and most deserving of success.
