WHEREAS a number of editions of our smaller Catechism have of late years been published without authority, and are now in circulation among the children of this Diocese, which are filled with faults and wrong quotations of holy Scripture, this is to certify, that the only edition which I approve of, and the circulation of which I uthorize, is that to which have affixed my signature and the seal of the Diocese of Boston.
