Nineteen letters and papers addressed to Wake while bishop of Lincoln, by an apparently insane clergyman, J. Bernard, vicar of Kelsterne and Ludford, Lincolnshire; complaining in no measured terms of poverty and neglect, condemning the Prayer-Book, Articles, Homilies, etc., and asserting the Divine authority of the Mass, Mar–Jul 1708

Some of the papers are addressed to the archbishops of Canterbury and York as well as to the bishop of Lincoln and there is, besides, (fol. 28) one addressed to the bishop of Bristol, (John Hall,) respecting his attacking the Roman doctrine of merit when attending the sick bed of Mrs. Frances Horde, daughter of Thomas Horde, esq., at Oxford in 1687 or 1688.
