Written by Fox later in his life with the benefit of hindsight, at a time when the Religious Society of Friends was struggling for acceptance. It was later edited after his death by Thomas Ellwood, under the direction of the Second-day Morning Meeting, and published in 1694. Two editions (mentioned above) are in print. The 1908 Rufus Jones edition (available at this site) is greatly abridged. The Nickalls edition includes passages that were edited out when it was first published.
