    Excerpt from The History of Religious Liberty, Vol. 2: From the First Propagation of Christianity in Britain, to the Death of George III., Including Its Successive State, Beneficial Influence, and Powerful Interruptions

    The presbyterians took a distmgurshed part in promoting the restoration alé and the king being voted home, a deputa tion was appointed by the parliament and the city of London to attend him. On the list of appointment were eight or ten presbyterian divines; who, upon their arrival at the Hague, signified, in the name of themselves and their brethren, their duty and affection to his majesty; and they thanked God for his majesty's constancy in the protestant religion, and de clared themselves no enemies to moderate episcopacy. They desired that those things might not be pressed upon them in God's worship, which; in the judgment of those who used them, were owned to be indifferent, while others refused them as altogether unlawful. The king received them kindly, and said he had heard of their good behaviour that he had no in tention to impose hard conditions, or to embarrass their con sciences; that he had referred the settlement of all religious differences, to the wisdom of the parliament and that the two houses were the best judges what indulgence and toleration was necessary for the repose of the kingdom.

    These divines, having several interviews with the king, took the liberty of suggesting, that the book of Common-prayer had for a long time been discontinued in England and that many of the people had never once heard it: therefore they entreated his majesty not to revive the use of it. Their re quest was unreasonable, grossly absurd, and directly opposed to the right of private judgment. The king, and all his sub jects, who might be so disposed, had, unquestionably, an equal right to use the Common-prayer in divine worship, as the presbyterians had to use any other prayers. Spiritual usur pation does not consist in the use, but in the imposition of forms of prayer in the worship of God while religious free dom secures invariably to all, an equal share of liberty to use the prayers of their own choice. His majesty, therefore.
