Excerpt from A Life of Archbishop Laud

In making quotations from old books or manuscripts, it is a question whether the better course is to give them as they stand, or in modern spelling and phraseology. Some critics object to the former as wearisome, others to the latter as too commonly inaccurate. I have adopted both; but, for the most part, I have given the literal rendering; partly because the English of the period with which I had to deal was not so different from our own as to present difficulties, or prove unpalatable to the modern reader, and partly because a moderniser, like a translator, rarely succeeds in leaving all its original freshness and force in the work which he manipulates.
