Different views of
the grievances taken by
the different sects.
1. Church of Englandist

mass would appear least

The grievances and consequently the nature of the
redress sought could not but wear very different aspects
in the eyes of the various several sec parties sects or sets into which the population,
as above stood divided, as characterized by the
persuasions professed on the subject of religion.

1. This sect [which could not have but find least to
complain at of — the set] in whose eyes instance the mass of the supposed
causes of complaint could not but appear less than in the
eyes of either of the two others were that of the Established
Church — the body of the Church of Englandists. +

2. Grievances to Church of
1. Trade cramped &
avowedly to favour
do of Britain.
Orders to which they
would be most
sensible, the lowest
and middling.

1. To the prejudice of the whole body of them they without exception saw
their trade avowedly restricted for the above avowed purpose

such their condition never had been failed never could have been failed
to be in his eyes objects of contempt and hatred and contempt.
