ments, which the Society had entrusted to my care, I was generally given to understand that the Greek Priests would do all in their power to thwart and render ineffectual any such distribution. I determined, therefore, to go at once to the Patriarch, and, if possible, procure his sanction. Accordingly I got translated a large Extract from the "Summary Account" of the Soco-ciety, which I left with him, together with a Copy of the Modern Greek Testament.— When I next saw him, he told me that he considered the object of the Society highly laudable, and presented me with the inclosed Declaration.

FAC SIMILE OF A LETTER IN MODERN
GREEK, BY THE PATRIARCH OF THE
GREEK CHURCH.

It is not merely because we consider the Greek New Testament printed by the British and Foreign Bible Society, containing the ancient and modern Greek in opposite lumns, as one of the greatest curiosities which have issued from the modern press,as one of the literary honours of our country, in the present day, while at the same time a demonstration of British benevolence to distant nations, that we have inserted As the present Patriarch is considered a the document annexed, but, also, because person of great literary attainments, the opiit may give occasion to valuable remarks on nion of so competent a judge respecting the the nature of the Greek characters, employ- version adopted by the Society, may be ed as well in former ages, as at present. thought in itself satisfactory; but I conceive The learned will remark the nature and dif- the Declaration may be also extensively useficulties of the ligatures; the hazard of mis- ful, if the Society should think proper to takes from copyists, who often valued swift-print and prefix it to each Copy of the Roness more than correctness; the necessity maic Testament which may hereafter be isof fair and distinct transcripts for important sued. I have been credibly informed, that occasions, or services of a public nature, many Greeks have scrupled to purchase, or &c. &c. In short, that the great men of even receive the Scriptures, without some antiquity should have had their readers, and such authority; and I understand, that the highly valued them, too, will no longer ap- persons acting for the Society at Zante, are pear wonderful, supposing their MSS. re- of opinion, that the sale of the Testaments, sembled this, in compression, and confu- transmitted there, has been materially resion.

This may contribute to moderate surprise at variations in copies of Greek writers, historians or poets; while it assists in explaining the causes of variations in documents of still greater importance, which have employed the investigations of the learned, for ages, and which must be supposed to increase with the popularity of works, and with the frequency of their transcription.

TRANSLATION.

Cyril, Archbishop of Constantinople, New
Rome, and Ecumenical Patriarch.
Our Lowliness notifies by this present Pa-
triarchal Declaration, that, having examined
accurately, and with the necessary atten-
tion, the Edition of the New Testament in
two languages, Hellenic and Romaic, pub-
lished in England by the Society there esta-
blished, of British Typography, by John
Tilling, at Chelsea, in the year one thou-
sand eight hundred and ten of the incarna
tion of Christ our Saviour, we have found in
it nothing false, or erroneous; wherefore we
have judged right to give permission for it
to be used, and read by all pious, united,
and orthodox Christians; to be sold in the
Bookseller's shops, and to be bought freely
by all who wish it, without any one making
the least hesitation: for the manifestation
of which, this our present Patriarchal De-
claration has been issued,
