In an attempt to forestall criticism, More's preface extolls her virtues, while simultaneously admitting the notebook's lack of philosophical cohesion: "Thou art to understand, that they are only Writings abruptly and scatterdly, I may add also obscurely, written in a Paper Book, with a Black-lead Pen, towards the latter end of her long and tedious Pains, and Sickness; which She never had Opportunity to revise, correct or perfect" (3).
