This letter curious.
Whether he still walks
with or without a keeper
not known.

If ever there were any such things as curious letters
this surely may be set down as one of the members. Whether
the Very Reverend author of it is st still walking over
earth, and if yes, whether with or without a keeper
is a matter of fact that has not fallen happened to
fall within the cognizance of the writer of these pages.

3
If without, consider
matter whether
Bish Church Rulers
should not keep him
from pen and paper
or Church-penal-
law books out of his
hands.

If the case be that he is still at large, it may be
be worth a matter worth consider among his plush and Right Reverend friends, rulers and supporters
of the Church of England old or new, matter worth the gravest
consideration, whether it might not be advisable if
the use of paper pen ink and paper be a warrantable
indulgence, at any rate to keeper be keep out of his hand all law-books all
in what is contained any matter belonging to the Ecclesiastical
branch of penal or the penal branch of Ecclesiastical
law.

Words indictable, but
not convictable: only
by Grand and Petty
Juries comnprized of
Bishops; Judge the
p Archbishop,
Ellenborough, Bailey
or Park desirable
Judge-substitutes?

Your religion meaning the Church of England religion
word indictable? — O yes: may be to a Grand Jury, under the name of a Bill of Indictment, any body
that thinks fit may present a piece of parchment on which those words such
as those are stated as being seditious, and contrary to the peace
of the our Lord the King and so forth. Indictable, yes: but
convictable would they be? that is the question – Yes: supposing the a
Bench of Bishops Grand Jury comprised of one half of the
Bench of Bishops with the Archbishop of Canterbury for
Foreman, and the Petty Jury with composed out of the
other half with the Bishop of London for Foreman
and the other Archbishop for Judge.
This does let the Very Reverend person present his Bill
and he need not fear the result. On this occasion Whether for the p Archbishop,
or Lord Ellenborough, or Mr Justice Bailey, or Mr Justice
Park, might reasonably an adequate substitute might reasonably be
looked
looked for, it certainly
is not necessary, and
perhaps might not be
altogether prudent to
inquire.
