Cardiff Library MS.
THAT it essentially belongeth vnto your callinge, to see all wt in Wales taught by ye word preached, is p'ued, by reason yt you ar gouernour over all . . . . because yt all whosoeuer are vnder any mans Jurisdiction, ought to kepe ye sabboth: so yt if any turke, papist or other pagan Idolatour remaine in any our cities or townes, he ought to be compelled to conforme himselfe to ye outward seruice of ye true god, or, expelled; this is shewed by ye practise of Nehemias."
Addressing the Bishops, whom he stigmatises as "blind guides," the preacher says " let not ye wicked papists haue any more cause to vpbraide ye ignorance of our people, as they haue done in yt pamphlet, w[hi]ch they threw abroad ye last yeare, to seduce our simple people—ye confutatio' whereof (if legendary fables wherewt yt skroule is fraught, ye translation of som pt of R. P. (fn. 2) his resolution, of didacus stella, dionisius Carthus. (fn. 3) deserueth a confutatio') I shal publishe when ye lord shal giue opertunitie."
