upon_o the_o confirmation_n change_v their_o joy_n into_o grief_n all_o the_o officer_n complain_v of_o the_o loss_n they_o shall_v receive_v in_o their_o office_n if_o that_o reformation_n be_v execute_v execute_v supplication_n also_o &_o memorial_n be_v give_v to_o the_o pope_n by_o those_o who_o have_v buy_v their_o office_n &_o foresee_v this_o loss_n demand_v restitution_n restitution_n the_o pope_n have_v diligent_o consider_v thereof_o depute_v eight_o cardinal_n to_o consult_v upon_o the_o confirmation_n &_o to_o think_v upon_o some_o remedy_n for_o the_o complaint_n of_o the_o court_n court_n he_o conclude_v it_o be_v certain_a that_o they_o who_o do_v procure_v the_o council_n have_v no_o aim_n but_o to_o pull_v down_o the_o pope_n authority_n and_o while_o the_o council_n do_v last_o every_o one_o do_v speak_v as_o if_o it_o have_v power_n to_o give_v law_n to_o he_o after_o all_o you_o think_v to_o mortify_v i_o with_o object_v that_o the_o corruption_n of_o the_o

word_n for_o it_o 2._o whether_o it_o be_v true_a or_o false_a it_o be_v nothing_o to_o my_o present_a purpose_n if_o false_a you_o be_v to_o blame_v for_o say_v so_o if_o true_a it_o be_v none_o of_o the_o council_n fault_n have_v proceed_v legal_o &_o have_v make_v good_a law_n the_o council_n have_v do_v its_o part_n it_o be_v we_o to_o do_v the_o rest_n my_o business_n be_v to_o defend_v the_o council_n i_o have_v nothing_o to_o do_v to_o rake_v the_o dunghill_n of_o the_o church_n have_v the_o decalogue_n less_o authority_n because_o the_o great_a part_n of_o mankind_n be_v so_o disobedient_a or_o be_v the_o gospel_n less_o sacred_a because_o there_o be_v so_o few_o who_o live_v according_a to_o the_o maxim_n of_o it_o if_o this_o be_v the_o only_a reason_n why_o you_o protest_v against_o the_o council_n of_o trent_n because_o the_o decree_n of_o reformation_n be_v not_o every_o where_o in_o all_o thing_n punctual_o observe_v i_o see_v no_o reason_n why_o you_o may_v not_o with_o as_o good_a a_o grace_n protest_v against_o the_o gospel_n &_o the_o ten_o commandment_n i_o have_v now_o do_v with_o your_o objection_n and_o although_o i_o be_o not_o of_o the_o poet_n mind_n that_o brevity_n be_v always_o good_a be_v it_o or_o be_v it_o not_o understand_v yet_o i_o have_v endeavour_v to_o be_v as_o short_a as_o possible_o i_o can_v because_o when_o i_o deal_v with_o a_o man_n of_o your_o part_n a_o word_n be_v enough_o to_o the_o wise_a &_o few_o word_n be_v best_a as_o for_o soave_fw-it who_o you_o so_o much_o admire_v i_o desire_v to_o ask_v you_o a_o few_o question_n before_o i_o tell_v you_o what_o i_o think_v of_o he_o suppose_v a_o mortal_a enemy_n of_o you_o shall_v libel_v you_o by_o the_o way_n of_o history_n call_v you_o rogue_n &_o rascal_n in_o the_o very_a preface_n and_o at_o the_o same_o time_n persuade_v his_o reader_n that_o he_o follow_v exact_o the_o truth_n will_v you_o have_v i_o take_v this_o author_n for_o a_o oracle_n will_v you_o not_o think_v i_o reasonable_a if_o i_o suspect_v almost_o every_o word_n he_o say_v and_o ought_v not_o i_o to_o do_v the_o council_n as_o much_o justice_n as_o i_o will_v my_o friend_n it_o be_v certain_a that_o soave_fw-it be_v a_o mortal_a enemy_n of_o the_o council_n in_o the_o very_a beginning_n he_o declare_v it_o he_o say_v 2._o say_v p._n 2._o it_o have_v cause_v the_o great_a deformation_n that_o ever_o be_v &_o call_v it_o the_o iliad_n of_o the_o age_n which_o be_v as_o kind_a a_o compliment_n to_o the_o father_n as_o if_o he_o have_v call_v they_o a_o pack_n of_o villain_n he_o tell_v we_o indeed_o in_o the_o same_o place_n that_o he_o be_v not_o possess_v with_o any_o passion_n which_o may_v make_v he_o err_v and_o this_o be_v well_o enough_o say_v but_o how_o shall_v a_o body_n do_v to_o believe_v he_o if_o it_o be_v your_o own_o case_n i_o be_o sure_a you_o will_v not_o like_v my_o be_v credulous_a and_o how_o do_v i_o know_v but_o that_o a_o enemy_n of_o the_o council_n may_v deserve_v as_o little_a credit_n as_o a_o enemy_n of_o you_o another_o reason_n why_o i_o do_v not_o like_v he_o be_v because_o he_o take_v upon_o he_o to_o write_v man_n private_a thought_n with_o as_o much_o assurance_n as_o he_o write_v their_o word_n and_o action_n he_o hardly_o ever_o speak_v of_o any_o intelligence_n come_v to_o rome_n but_o he_o entertain_v his_o reader_n with_o a_o pleasant_a scene_n in_o which_o he_o bring_v the_o pope_n alone_o upon_o the_o stage_n discourse_v with_o himself_o his_o secret_a apprehension_n &_o deliberation_n upon_o every_o matter_n such_o thought_n as_o no_o wise_a man_n will_v trust_v his_o neighbour_n with_o although_o he_o be_v the_o best_a &_o sure_a friend_n he_o have_v in_o the_o world_n how_o soave_fw-it can_v possible_o come_v to_o any_o certain_a knowledge_n of_o such_o thing_n i_o be_o not_o able_a to_o comprehend_v and_o true_o if_o a_o man_n in_o one_o case_n will_v tell_v i_o more_o than_o he_o can_v know_v i_o have_v just_a reason_n to_o be_v afraid_a that_o in_o another_o he_o will_v tell_v i_o more_o than_o he_o do_v know_v a_o three_o reason_n which_o weigh_v more_o with_o i_o than_o all_o the_o rest_n be_v this_o you_o tell_v i_o on_o the_o one_o side_n he_o be_v a_o popish_a friar_n and_o on_o the_o other_o i_o can_v believe_v but_o that_o although_o perhaps_o for_o some_o reason_n he_o do_v not_o open_o profess_v it_o he_o be_v real_o a_o protestant_n it_o appear_v so_o plain_o by_o his_o censure_v the_o decree_n of_o doctrine_n as_o well_o as_o those_o of_o reformation_n &_o by_o the_o severe_a reflection_n of_o his_o own_o which_o he_o intermix_v with_o those_o of_o the_o lutheran_n critic_n that_o i_o do_v not_o conceive_v how_o any_o man_n of_o sense_n who_o read_v he_o with_o attention_n can_v be_v of_o another_o opinion_n have_v he_o be_v a_o barefaced_a protestant_n i_o shall_v be_v more_o incline_v to_o believe_v he_o there_o be_v something_o of_o integrity_n &_o honour_n in_o a_o man_n that_o open_o profess_v what_o he_o be_v and_o although_o passion_n &_o prejudice_n may_v blind_v he_o yet_o i_o be_o apt_a to_o think_v that_o such_o a_o person_n will_v never_o deceive_v i_o more_o than_o he_o deceive_v himself_o but_o a_o protestant_n that_o live_v &_o die_v in_o the_o profession_n of_o a_o popish_a friar_n how_o can_v i_o believe_v his_o word_n when_o the_o most_o serious_a of_o his_o action_n be_v only_o so_o many_o lie_v for_o my_o own_o part_n i_o will_v as_o soon_o make_v choice_n of_o a_o catholic_n jew_n to_o comment_n upon_o the_o gospel_n &_o to_o write_v the_o life_n of_o christ_n as_o i_o will_v choose_v a_o protestant_a friar_n to_o write_v the_o history_n of_o a_o general_n council_n before_o i_o end_v my_o letter_n give_v i_o leave_v once_o more_o to_o mind_v you_o of_o the_o discourse_n we_o have_v when_o we_o see_v one_o another_o last_o we_o both_o agree_v that_o 1._o that_o c._n ii_o p._n 1._o it_o be_v a_o very_a irrational_a thing_n to_o make_v law_n for_o a_o country_n &_o leave_v it_o to_o the_o inhabitant_n to_o be_v the_o interpreter_n &_o judge_n of_o those_o law_n for_o then_o every_o man_n will_v be_v his_o own_o judge_n &_o by_o consequence_n no_o such_o thing_n as_o either_o right_a or_o wrong_n that_o ibid._n that_o ibid._n therefore_o we_o can_v suppose_v that_o god_n almighty_n will_v leave_v we_o at_o those_o uncertainty_n as_o to_o give_v we_o a_o rule_n to_o go_v by_o &_o leave_v every_o man_n to_o be_v his_o own_o judge_n that_o ib._n that_o ib._n christ_n leave_v his_o spirit_n &_o power_n to_o his_o church_n by_o which_o they_o be_v the_o judge_n even_o of_o the_o scripture_n itself_o many_o year_n after_o the_o apostle_n which_o book_n be_v canonical_a &_o which_o be_v not_o that_o 2._o that_o ibid._n p._n 2._o the_o judgement_n of_o the_o church_n be_v without_o appeal_n otherwise_o what_o they_o decide_v will_v be_v no_o far_o to_o be_v follow_v than_o it_o agree_v with_o every_o man_n private_a judgement_n that_o because_o in_o the_o apostle_n creed_n we_o believe_v in_o the_o holy_a catholic_n church_n therefore_o we_o ought_v to_o believe_v in_o the_o first_o four_o general_n council_n which_o be_v true_a &_o legal_a representative_n of_o it_o and_o last_o that_o if_o the_o council_n of_o trent_n be_v prove_v to_o be_v as_o general_n as_o free_a &_o as_o legal_a in_o all_o its_o circumstance_n as_o any_o of_o the_o first_o four_o council_n be_v than_o you_o must_v needs_o own_v yourself_o oblige_v in_o conscience_n to_o submit_v to_o it_o &_o to_o leave_v of_o protest_v against_o it_o this_o last_o part_n i_o have_v here_o endeavour_v to_o prove_v out_o of_o soave_fw-it himself_z your_o own_o historian_n who_o always_o make_v the_o worst_a of_o thing_n &_o never_o speak_v a_o favourable_a word_n but_o when_o the_o power_n of_o truth_n constrain_v he_o to_o it_o if_o i_o have_v
