Excerpt from Ecclesiastical Antiquities of London and Its Suburbs

The pages here presented to the reader demand little by way of preface. A work exclusively devoted to the Ecclesiastical Antiquities of the Metropolis has long been a desideratum. But when we proposed to ourselves to supply this deficiency, many difficulties presented themselves.

It is simply impossible for a writer who has only his leisure time to devote to historical inquiries to compete with those who have their whole time at command. At first sight it may appear that it is merely a question of time - that the work is done slowly in the one case, quickly in the other. But it is not so. If a man has turned his efforts to attain mastery over any one subject, he has probably crippled them when he would address him self to another, though his natural taste for it may be keen and strong as ever. His thoughts do not run, his words do not flow. What is interesting to him he fails to make interesting to a reader.
