The Printer at the Bar.
His Book to be burnt, and no Lists of that Sort to be published without the Approbation of the Earl Marshal.

"May it please this Honourable House,
"I do here, in all Sorrow of Heart and true Repentance, acknowledge those many Errors and Indiscretions, which I have committed, in preaching and publishing those Two Sermons of mine, which I called Religion and Allegiance, and my great Fault in falling upon this Theme again, and handling the same rashly, scandalously, and unadvisedly, in mine own Parish Church, in St. Giles in the Fields, the 4th of May last past. I do humbly acknowledge those Three Sermons of mine to be full of many dangerous Passages and Inferences, and scandalous Aspersions, in most Parts of the same. And I do humbly acknowledge the Justice of this Honourable House in that Sentence and Judgement past upon me for my great Offence. And I do, from the Bottom of my Heart, crave Pardon of God, the King, this Honourable House, the Church, and the Commonwealth in general, and those worthy Persons adjudged to be reflected upon by me in particular, for these great Errors and Offences.

"And I do humbly acknowledge the just Proceedings of this Honourable House against me, and the just Sentence and Judgement passed upon me by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal for my great Offence."
