Many Parishes Are Doing This for the Soldiers
ANY parishes are giving an Oxford Prayer Book or Testament to each man in the parish who goes to the front. The best plan is to give one in durable leather-fit for hard usage, compact (an Oxford India paper edition) for the soldier or sailor cannot carry much. His name ought to be stamped on it in gold-as identification and to make it doubly valuable. It ought to be a fine book to adequately express the regard of the home-folks. Such a book brought back from the war will be a priceless heirloom. Rectors who have explained this plan to their congregations have met with hearty responses and ample contributions to cover the cost of giving each man a book of good quality.
We will gladly send a list of suitable styles.
At all booksellers or from the publishers.
