(LATE FELLOW.COMMONER) OF QUEEN'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.

SECOND EDITION.

“ Persecution for diversity of opinions, however ridiculous and absurd they may be, is
contrary to every principle of sound policy and civil freedom. The names and subordination of
the clergy, the posture of devotion, the materials and colour of the ministers' garment, the
joining in a known or unknown form of prayer, and other matters of the same kind, must be left
to the option of every man's private judgment."'_BLACKSTONE.
