Issue 1 - January 1877
P. 1 - "Some men may cry, "Peace, peace; oh sacrifice anything for peace!" but there can be no real peace while our Church tolerates and fosters Popery. Is ecclesiastical peace so sweet, that it is worth purchasing at the expense of truth? Is a quiet life so precious, that in order to secure it we will tolerate transubstantiation and auricular confession? God forbid that we should say so! What others think I know not. For my own part my mind is made up. I have come to one decided conclusion. I say, give me a Protestant and Evangelical Church of England, or no Church of England at all. When the reformed Church of England renounces her Protestant principles and goes back to Popery, her glory will have departed. She will be an offence to God, and not a resting-place for any true Christian." - Rev Canon Ryle.

They have acted throughout under a deep conviction that they were engaged in a momentous struggle; that their controversy was not with individuals, but in the defence of principles, and they are content to await the judgment of the future as to the value and importance of their labours in defence of the principles and order of the established Church. . . .'
