    Excerpt from The English Dominican Province: 1221-1921

    For seven hundred years the children of St. Dominic, at their Father's command and helped by his prayers, have sought to meet the needs and answer the call of each succeeding age. The present book seeks to show how they tried in the past to do their duty.

    Seven hundred years have passed since the first English Dominicans came to their native land to plant the Dominican tree. With many great successes and many great failures, with many great joys yet many deep and terrible trials and sorrows, their work through the centuries has gone on, and it is a great subject of rejoicing to see them to-day still at work in the land that gave them birth.

    To pursue the simile of the tree (for the tree that St. Dominic planted is still growing in Rome in the garden of St. Sabina) we can always expect and indeed look for many branches to wither and to die. Each year the tree puts off its leaves and each year fresh ones come up. Though the new leaves know little of the ones that went before, save to see them lying dead at the foot of the tree, it is the hidden sap unseen by both that gives life to each and clothes them all with glory year by year - how foolish if the leaves were to boast and to take the glory to themselves So when read ing these pages, if the children of St. Dominic take the glory of the tree's appearance unto themselves and boast, they will do a very foolish thing.

    The present book is not brought before the public eye in a boasting spirit, but in order that those who read may praise the Providence of God, who through His weak and sinful creatures has, by His life-giving grace, done such great things.
