Re: Puritans.net Home School Curriculum and the Reformation Party
Thanks for confirming about the completeness of the materials. They looked that way to me, but I haven't had time to go through them thoroughly and make that determination.
And, now that I look at the posts, I think at this point I became confused.
On Dec 29, when in response to Charles, you changed the title of the Subject to include ..."and the Reformation Party." You added to this post script:
