I am grateful for what you say of the Scripture Readings, I did consider of the use of paragraphs, but as I meant the book primarily for school reading I though the loss of verses would be inconvenient, and I myself do not like using a paragraph Bible because I can never find anything quickly in it

Perhaps I was actuated by my childish dislike to Lloyd’s Bible which used to seem to me unnatural.

yours truly
