There are several instances where the letter "C" appears to be capitalized and I transcribed it as such. But I was uncertain if capitalization of the letter "C" was indeed warranted.


Transcription lines 11 & 19: the word "Liberatine" appears to be a misspelling of "libertine." "Liberatine" seems to be used as a noun by the author. I interpret its contextual use to mean 'an immoral, promiscuous society or lifestyle.'

Line 24: The Hibbert Journal was titled as a Quarterly Review of Religion, Theology and Philosophy.
