Excerpt from A Compendium of Religious Faith and Pratice: Designed for Young Persons of the Society of Friends
To imbue the tender minds of youth with the great principles of piety and virtue, with that knowledge which will promote their true happiness, both here and hereafter, is an object of incalculable importance: and more especially so, from their susceptibility to receive impressions, and their aptitude to retain them. Every attempt, therefore, to accomplish so desirable an end, will, doubtless, be received with some degree of attention and indulgence.
The Author of this Compendium, influenced by these considerations, has endeavoured to select for the use of young persons of the Society of Friends, the most important principles of religious faith and practice; to arrange them in a regular and intelligible order; and to express them in language adapted to their capacities.
