To be used yearly upon the Fifth Day of November,

For the happy Deliverance of King JAMES I. and the Three Estates

The Minister of every Parish shall give warning to his Parishioners publickly in the Church at Morning Prayer, the Sunday before, for the due Observation of the said Day. And after Morning Prayer, or Preaching, upon the said Fifth Day of November, shall read publickly, distinctly, and plainly, the Act of Parliament, made in the third Year of King James the First, for the Observation of it. The Service shall be the same with the usual Office for Holydays in all things; except where it is hereafter otherwise appointed. If this Day shall happen to be Sunday, only the Collect proper for that Sunday shall be added to this Office in its place.
