Not illustrated. 1696 edition. Excerpt: ...but know, Thac the defign of this Rhapfodie, is to increafe your Party, which is too ftrong already 5 and to weaken the other Party of found Orthodox Proteftants, too weak already. I faw a Letter from a Baxterian in London, to another (who I think gloryed as much in that Name, as in that of Proteftant) Thus you may eassly imagine what Veneration I have for that name, which will he famm to the end of the World; eTet Imuss confefs, Mr. Baxter was guilty of one great fault, To put Mens words upon the rack, nd makf them fpeak what he pleasd. You that magnifie him, do tell us, how humbly he carryed it to feme of you5 the reafon was becaufe you were his Creatures, and approached his prefence with awe and reipeft he could do no lefs. I knew one that defired the favour to kifs his Hand. The lowly Man granted it, and was gracioufly pleafed to condefceod fo far: He came with that Veneration as a Papifi would the Infallible Man at Rome to Us his Toe j and Talk'd of it with fo much delight, as if his Lips had been San&ified by this 49 ) great Priviledge.

How big was the World with.
