Excerpt from Select Metrical Hymns and Homilies of Ephraem Syrus

At the commencement of the year 1850 I entered into an engagement with the editors of the Library of the Fathers, printed at Oxford, to translate into English the Festal Letters for that series of works, and this task was accomplished, and the manuscript delivered to the Rev. H. G. Williams, the editor, in May, 1851. I had hoped that long since that valuable relic of ecclesiastical litera ture would have been in the hands of the public, but the unavoidable delay will be productive of this advantage, that I Shall be able to revise and correct my translation with all the light which the after study of the language may throw upon it. I may mention that about this time I became acquainted with another valuable acquisition, secured from threatened ruin in the East by the aid of our Government: I mean the Syriac text of a version of the Theophania of Eusebius, which, like the Letters of Athanasius, had long been lost in the original Greek. This was presented to me by the editor, the Rev. Dr. Samuel Lee (5 itaxapt'flys and formed a valuable addition to my small store of Syriac books.
