For whatever reason you may want it, here is the gospel of Matthew in the 1611 old English.  I also included the introduction.

Maybe I am using the wrong font, but the long footed s's in the middle of the words print as a regular s.

My favorite font is Cambria and I used that.  I don't know if there is a font that will give you that or not.  If so on Windows just hit ctrl + a and choose your font.  The source I used didn't use that font.  Here is the web site I used.  The original typeface would have been a Gothic style.  I believe for Logos to recognize a font for a personal book it has to be in the font list in program settings.  So probably Old English Text MT is about as close as you will get to the original.

Jerry, Have you completed the 1611 New Testament or Old Testament?
