This manuscript, together with some further fragments found in the late Mr. Rssll's own interleaved copy of his Prayer-Book of Free Man's Worship, which was fortunately rescued with a few of the great author's other belongings, was first given to the world in the Monist for October 1911 and January 1916, and has here been arranged and completed by some other hitherto undecipherable manuscripts. The title of the above-mentioned Prayer-Book, it may perhaps be mentioned, was apparently suggested to Mr. Rssll by that of the Essay on "The Free Man's Worship" in the Philosophical Essays (London, 1910, pp. 59-70) of Mr. Rssll's distinguished contemporary, Mr. Bertrand Russell, from whom much of Mr. Rssll's philosophy was derived. And, indeed, the influence of Mr. Russell extended even beyond philosophical views to arrangement and literary style.
