2. 1644. Small 8vo. Lugd. Bat., Hack.

B. (vol. iii. p. 486, ed. Bohn), as follows :“When I came to Paris the next year after (1645 ?], I found it printed again, in which edition both the Epistles were left out, and a Preface by some papist put in their place, in which, making use of and wresting some pas. sages in your book, he endeavoured to show that nothing but custom and education kept you from their Church.” The volume is probably scarce, as Gardiner appears never to have seen it.
