the_o first_o imposer_n or_o not_o but_o other_o who_o consider_v more_o tender_o what_o it_o be_v to_o swear_v in_o truth_n and_o in_o judgement_n think_v it_o rather_o a_o profanation_n and_o a_o

to_o say_v no_o worse_o liable_a enough_o to_o the_o calumny_n of_o a_o inventive_a malice_n and_o the_o advocate_n tell_v we_o though_o all_o the_o ceuncil_n have_v allow_v a_o man_n to_o swear_v with_o a_o explanation_n yet_o any_o of_o his_o majesty_n officer_n may_v the_o next_o day_n quarrel_v he_o it_o be_v evident_a that_o this_o allowance_n can_v afford_v he_o no_o security_n it_o be_v true_a the_o advocate_n may_v allege_v and_o possible_o find_v a_o difference_n betwixt_o the_o council_n emit_v and_o their_o accept_n of_o a_o explanation_n but_o as_o in_o truth_n there_o be_v

to_o nothing_o it_o be_v likewise_o to_o be_v remember_v that_o when_o the_o earl_n the_o next_o day_n after_o he_o take_v the_o test_n be_v question_v for_o the_o explanation_n he_o have_v make_v

if_o instant_o retract_v when_o question_v shall_v be_v pass_v but_o this_o as_o well_o as_o other_o thing_n must_v in_o the_o earl_n case_n be_v singular_a and_o whether_o he_o plead_v the_o

that_o a_o reverend_a bishop_n and_o many_o of_o the_o orthodox_n clergy_n do_v take_v a_o far_o great_a liberty_n of_o explanation_n than_o the_o earl_n pretend_v to_o you_o see_v also_o that_o first_o the_o council_n allow_v his_o word_n whereupon_o he_o rest_v and_o when_o he_o find_v that_o they_o begin_v to_o challenge_v he_o be_v willing_a to_o disow_v and_o withal_o it_o be_v undeniable_a and_o acknowledge_v by_o the_o council_n themselves_o that_o the_o test_n as_o it_o stand_v in_o the_o act_n of_o parliament_n be_v ambiguous_a and_o needs_o to_o be_v explain_v and_o the_o earl_n may_v confident_o aver_v that_o of_o all_o the_o explanation_n that_o have_v be_v offer_v even_o the_o council_n not_o except_v his_o be_v the_o most_o safe_a sound_a and_o least_o
