Part of a paper (imperfect at the beginning and unfinished at the close) in vindication of the conduct of the Bishops with regard to the Declaration of abhorrence of the invasion by the Prince of Orange required from them by James II., with alterations in the handwriting of Bishop Turner, Date not recorded at time of cataloguing

MS. Rawl. C. 735, fol. 54

  • Request

Extracts from this Apology (taken from a copy made from the original in the hands of one of the Bishops, not named) are printed in a pamphlet entitled, A Vindication of Archbp. Sancroft [etc.] from, the reflections of Mr. Marshall, in octavo. Lond. 1717, pp. 7–19. The passages subsequently quoted in this tract are not to be found in our MS., which has the following endorsement (apparently by the hand of E. Umfreville) on the last leaf: "This seems to be a rough draught of what I sent you some time ago, tho' in many respects different from it, and in some particulars containing a fuller account of the facts related."
