This is an extremely rare pamphlet, unknown to WorldCat. The above file is based on a photocopy I received from Hereford Library in 2002.

Interestingly, excerpts from this pamphlet were reprinted (evidently in ignorance of the author and with a wrong date, 1838) in a pamphlet entitled The Remedy for Division: An Enquiry as to the State of the Church to-day in Relation to Christian Unity (London c. 1934), pp. 6–7, as well as in G.H. Lang’s Anthony Norris Groves: Saint and Pioneer (London 1949), p. 109. A short extract is also quoted in Gordon Pratt, ‘The Breaking of Bread (2A)’, Scripture Truth 50 (1989–91), p. 186, repr. as In Remembrance of Me (Morpeth, 2001), p. 14; here the date is correct (1839), but the quotation is attributed to Darby!

Acknowledging my debt to Michael Schneider, I quoted the passage on page 22 of this pamphlet about the Brethren's readiness to receive at the Lord's Table the Russian Emperor Alexander and Archbishop Fenelon in my Life and Times of Samuel Prideaux Tregelles (p.36 n.6). I'm ashamed to see that I mistook the reference and cited it from page 21 instead of page 22. Mea culpa for which I apologize. Timothy Stunt
