Daily Courant (Newspaper) - October 17, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Cotifaiit. a aturday, C>&ober 1730. Tefierdny arriv'd the Mail due from Holland. Continuation of the Bi/hop c/ NifmesV Speech to the French Kingf begun in the Courant of Saturday, O&ober to. dt thiuk the Sacrifice of our Lives too dear; All other Interests* however nearly they concern hs, provided they are not in eparable from our Character, we can u chearfuMv relign J Our Ambition perfe-veres in the Demand of nothing but what is convenient; and our profound Refpect for your Majefty affures you of our Compliance in every thing that falls within our* Power. " Let our Eftates, v hkh a^ the Frflits of the Liberality of the Kings your Prede-ceffors, and of trie Piety of the Faithful, but are. become the Patrimony of Jefus Chrift, be ferviceab!e rp your Majefty, and be made the fame Uie of, that we our felves ftiould do; you know rheir.Freedom, " and for why your Majefty's own Authority t As much *' as we have foothed our felves with the " Ambition of giving, you Proofs of our Set-" vice, we are prouder of the Glory of obey-" ing you j and a Submiflion tbat is pleafing to fou, will always filence in us the Regret * of Favour and Preferment. " In a word, Sire,, the Sacrifice of thefe *' Advantages, whenever your Majefty rd-u buires it, cofts us nothing at Heart, becaufe " u takes nothing from bur- Religioo or our . w Chara'cter. What is only Human, may � lie at the Mercy of Men; bat as for the tt tt tt tt it u it ti it it " Depofitum of the Faith, and our jurifdi&ibb� "which is a neceflary Confequence of it, ic " is our Treafure, our Glory, our Engage-" ment. We can never confent to its bein^ " taken from us. We are anfwerable for ic to God, to the Church, to the People, and to your Majefty, whofe Empire is grounded upon Catholicifm, and muft always b� fupported by thofe Principles. " Nevertheiefs, Sirei thefe Rights, Sacred as they are, are openly defpifed; and the " Violation of them is at this Day of perni-" cious Confequence ih your Kingdom. We ** are the Judges of the Faith. Tbey do not " difpute the Title with us; but they invali-" date the Exercife of it. Private Perfohi '* have loudly declared againft the Doctrine " of their Mafters in Jefus Chrift j and infie-" rior Minifters of the Chnrch, againft the " Authority of the Chief Paftors. Evety " Man, upon his own Principles, fets himfelf " up for a Judge of the Faith, and makes no " Account of thofe that ought to lix it; " Smart Declamations, and impious Raillery, "enough to topfourrd the firfheft Courage "and Resolution not ro be afhamed of the *' Gofpel, leave no SrOne unturned to annul "a Judgment of the Church, which Cannot " fall without (baking all the Foundations of *' our Faith. Seditious Papers^ own'd and " acknowledged by Parifll Priefts of your " Capital, publickly contradict the Mandate <4 of their Archbifhopi We fee Priefts au-' dacioufly afcend the Altar in Triumph^ who are excluded from it by the only lawful Authority that can reftore them ; and it the Difpenfing of the Graces of Jefus Chrift is affumed by Rebellious and Sacrilegious Hands, who by the Exercife of a Power tbat is confined to them, can only fcandaiize the Faithful, or impofe upon their Simplicity. " Such Enterprises do not Only pafe un-punifhed ; we fpeak it with a fincere Con-" cern, Sire, they are openly defended, un-" der the Pretence of good Order. Sincfe " your Majefty'^ new Declaration, eight Ar-" rets of Prohibition have broke mopbn it/ " by impofing Silence upon holy and jucti. " cious Prelates who have conform'd them-" felyes thereto, or by condemning a Doc-��^r/e, fhe'Knowledge whereof is twdbu&J "tedly confined to the Bifhops alone; and " thofe'Arrets, which, confidering the CircumS " fiance of an Affembiy held in vour Maje-" ftys.Sight, are the groffer Affront upon us; " furoifh us with an Occafion of waiting " upon yon the more readily with our Com-? plaints.
