General Advertiser (Newspaper) - September 13, 1845, London, Middlesex K v m b. 33 79. F R I D A Y, September i3� *745- Deal, September 11. jfiMAlN in the Downs the Royal G and our Pof-terity. But if any one Order of Men be more nearly concerned than another, it is ours ; who, under our gracious Sovereign, are by cur Office and Function the more immediate Guardians of our Holy Religion ; and particularly, againfi the manifold Corruptions of Chriitianity, which a Popilh Government would not fail to introduce. Upon thefe Considerations, I have thought it my Duty attnisTime, to intreat you, in a particular Manner, Fr-jl, To put up your earned Prayers t j Almighty God, for Succefs to his Majefty's Arms againit this bold and trai-terous Attempt, and for averting from us fo fore and heavy a Judgment ; and then, to convince the People committed to your Care, how nearly it concerns them to pray heartily for h:s Aid and Protection at this needful Time, if they have any Value for their Religion and Liberty. Secondly, To raife in your People a jult Abhorrence of Popery ; by fetting yourielf on this Occafion, to Shew in yourDifcourfes from the Pulpit, theGrofihefs and Perniciouf-neSs of the manifold Errors and Innovations of the Church of Rome, and how inconfntent they' are with the plain, pure, and uncorrupted Doctrines of Christianity ; as contained in thw Holy Scriptures, and received and eltablifhed in this Nation. Thirdly, To guard your People againii: a Delufjton that has been ufually prattifed by the Enemy, as oft as Defigns �f this kind have been fet on Foot j namely, That the Perfon whole Caufe they efpoufe, will content himfelf vvith theExercife of his own Religion, and with the Enjoyment of fuch a Prerogative as the Constitution allows ; and that no Change in our Religion will be attempted, nor any of the Laws broken thro', by which it is now fecur'd. To arm your People againti this Delufion, you cannot ufe a more efFtcTial Way, than to revive upon their Minds the State of Things in the Reign of King James the Second ; par-icularly, the great Progrefs that was made in fo fhort a Time towards the introducing of Popery, and, the Endear vours that were ufed by him to bring about a Parliamentary Repeal of the Laws againfi it ; and, when that fail'd, his fufpending and fetting them afide, by the groundless Claim of a Difpenfing Power. And all this, after the moft fo-lemn Declaration at his coming to the Crown, that he would make it his Endeavour to preferve the Governmnet both in Church and State, as eftabliffd by Law. The Declaration, of which this is a Part, was made openly in Council, and then printed and difpers'd with his Majefty's Leave. Thefe are the things which I earneftly recommend to the Attention of my Clergy at this Time. And I do it with the greater Earneftnefs, becaufe 1 am very fenfible how much Pains have been taken of late Years, not only to abate the juft Fears and Apprehenilons the People formerly had, from a Popiih Government, but even to bring fome among us to entertain too favourable Thoughts of Popery itfelf. And fo, commending you and th� People commuted to your Care, to the Blefiing and Direction of God, / remain, Sir. " Itur djfured Ft iind -and Brother, EDM. LONDON.
