Dedication

of:
Christian Patience: the Strength and Discipline of the Soul
by Archbishop Ullathorne
Burns & Oates: London

To His Eminence,
THE MOST ILLUSTRIOUS AND MOST REVEREND
CARDINAL NEWMAN

My Dear Lord Cardinal,

I do not forget that your first public appearance in the Catholic church
was at my consecration to the Episcopate, and that since that time
forty years of our lives have passed, during which you have honoured
me with a friendship and a confidence that have much enriched my life.
Deeply sensible of the incalculable services which you have rendered
to the Church at large by your writings, and to this Diocese of your
residence in particular by the high and complete character of your virtues,
by your zeal for souls, and by the influence of your presence in the midst
of us, I wish to convey to you the expression of my affection, veneration,
and gratitude, by the dedication of this book to your name. It is the last
work of any importance that I shall ever write, and I can only wish that
it were more worthy of your patronage.

I am ever, my dear Lord Cardinal,
Your devoted and affectionate Servant in Christ,
@ WILLIAM BERNARD ULLATHORNE,
Bishop of Birmingham

Birmingham, 18th July, 1886
