Baxter’s defense of himself and his brethren against the accusations of George Morley. Printed letter. The title page is superscribed ‘II’. It is followed by ‘The Prologue’; then comes this heading, with three double crosses over it: ‘A true & full Account of the Matters of fact which are necessary to be knowne for the right understanding of the Accusation & Defense: (forbearing the publication of the rest of the History of that Treaty, Disputations and Conference with the Right Reverend Bishops. As that which is supposed would be displeasing, to which I have no call.)’ (f 208r). The crosses refer to the passage at f 256v. The first part seems to begin with this heading at f 217r, ‘An Answere to the Lord Bishop of Worcesters Letter.’ Here, in the margin, Baxter says: ‘This was written before I was silenced, at London 1662,’ A long extract from Bp. Bilson, at ff 243-244, seems to be in the handwriting of Mrs. Baxter. ‘The work seems to end at the bottom of f 277r, and the four lines on the next page seem to be an imperfect postscript. On f243 the handwriting seems to change.
Includes: 'The Prologue. I have long thought that it is a more safe & easie & desirable state, to be governed than to governe,’
