In the margin of this page, 23d, of the MS., after the words "quickly waste," is the following note, to which allusion has already been made : Heere inserte certaine propositions to the general court, &c. after the marke." There is no reference to what these propositions are, nor to the place where they might be found. They are however contained in the printed copy and constitute the last 12 lines of p. 86, and the whole of the 6 pages following, and 7 lines of p. 93, ending with the word "jubent" no part of which is of course in

the MS.

t Is not this the James Britton, who was hanged for adultery in 1643, and of whom Gov. Winthrop gives some account, as a bad man, on pages 157, 158, and 159, in the second volume of Mr. Savage's edition? Britton "was whipt" about March, 1639. 1 Winth. 288, 289, where Mr. Savage, in a note, calls this "extraordinary tyranny," to which severe charge I am sorry to express my doubts. In addition to the remarks before made, I cannot forbear to add another on the subject of Mr. Lenthall. The doctrine contended for by him, that of admission to the church by baptism, was, it is believed, the distinctive doctrine of the Church of England, and it is believed to be almost strictly so now, other denominations requiring evidence of good character by propounding or by examination of the clergyman before admission. The question in this case brought up the whole matter of introducing foreign jurisdiction, &c.
