least_o allow_v for_o the_o minister_n to_o use_v in_o public_a divine_a administration_n and_o if_o we_o look_v upon_o antiquity_n the_o presbyterian_o themselves_o will_v and_o do_v confess_v in_o

the_o church_n then_o because_o those_o heretic_n do_v convey_v and_o spread_v their_o poisonous_a doctrine_n in_o their_o form_n of_o prayer_n and_o hymn_n the_o church_n think_v it_o convenient_a to_o restrain_v that_o liberty_n and_o set_v a_o order_n that_o none_o shall_v vary_v in_o their_o prayer_n but_o all_o shall_v use_v the_o same_o form_n which_o be_v approve_v of_o and_o prescribe_v
