It was right and proper, as they could not proceed according to ancient usage, because of the dissent of the church, to approach as near to it as possible by calling a respectable council,...
Strona 101 - And the respective churches connected and associated in public worship with such parishes and religious societies, shall at all times have, use, exercise and enjoy, all their accustomed privileges, and liberties, respecting divine worship, church order and discipline, and shall be encouraged in the peaceable and regular enjoyment and practice thereof.
