"From Geneva to Rome" by Charles H Thomson

Opening line: "I am writing this for my dear good grandchildren. Sooner or later they will be asked to justify their adhesion to the Roman Catholic religion by someone for whom they have a respect, possibly for whom they have ventured to develop an affection."

Thomson, Charles H

"Red Letter Men" - an History of Brindle Mission 16th /17th Centuries - Draft Manuscript

First Paragraph:
"The old Church Calendars had important Holy-Days printed in red the rest being in black. As the principles of the Reformation spread the observance of these Holy-days fell into disuse, only there she refused to have anything to do with these principles paid any serious attention to them. These latter called themselves "Catholics" or "Roman Catholics", their opponents had for them nick-names whose courtesy values varied considerably. In the Ribble Valley the term "Red Letter Men" was a popular one, arising from the fact that those so denominated held steadfastly to the observance of the Red Letter Holy-days. "
