Excerpt from A Letter Addressed to Mrs. Russel, of Derby, on the Subject of Satan's Crown Turned Upside Down: In Which Is Explained, the True Meaning of Samson Tying the Foxes Tail to Tail, and Burning Up the Corn of the Philistines, Also, Herein Is Proved, That Mankind Are Perfectly Free From the Charge of Being Sinners Against God
The foxes are taken and tied tail to tail, understand aright my meaning the scriptures themselves are not foxes, but men, not understanding them, and handling the scriptures craftily and deceitfully, have made them as foxes to the people; O Israel, thy prophets are as foxes in the desert because, even because you have seduced my people saying peace, and there was no peace. And one built up a wall, and 10, others daubed it with untempered morter: say unto them that daubed it with untempered morter, that it shall fall. There shall be an overﬂowing shower, and yo 0 great hail stones shall fall, and a strong wind shall rend it.
