Summary

To all those in the Army or elsewhere, that have caused our many and great Eclipses since 1646

Gentlemen,

Being summoned by Mr James Harrington Esquire, to give an account of my Political Principles, I found none at the Publication, so meet to receive it as your selves. Your practices assure me, that between Your Judgments and Consciences, and Mine, there is no little difference. And I think it not meet to differ in points, which our souls, and the Churches Peace depend on, without giving you the reasons of my Dissent. Some I understand are much offended, that I vindicate the honour of Providence, and the Protestant Religion, against the accusations of the Papists, by which they have made it odious abroad. But I am still of the Opinion, that the Honour of God, and the Gospel should be dearer to us, than the honour of those that sin against them: (and is so to every upright heart:) and that the truth of Events may be recorded, and History should be impartial, and Providence on both sides have its due. They that have not read such Books, as The Scotish and English Presbytery discovered by a (pretended) French Divine, The Image of both Churches and other Revilers and Slanderers of the Church, and that know not the infamy that's cast on our names through most of the Christian world, are no fit Censurers of my words.
