Chapter III. The "Proposed Book" of The first General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America met in Christ Church, in the City of Philadelphia, from September 27 to October 7, He was particularly anxious to obtain a more pure reformation of the church ; he therefore united with many of his brethren in subscribing the "Book of Discipline."t In the year J, one Mr. Rogers, most probably this pious divine, was cited to appear before the high commission; but whether he received any ecclesiastical censure, we are unable. Two couples have served more than thirty years each, and the other two have served twenty each, for a total of one hundred years of fruitful labor.

The lives of two and twenty English divines: eminent in their generations for learning, piety, and painfulnesse in the work of the ministry, and for their sufferings in the cause of Christ: whereunto are annexed the lives of Gaspar Coligni, that famous admirall of France, slain in the Parisian massacre, and of Joane Queen of Navarr, who died. Baxter had only been two years at his post in Kidderminster when the civil war burst out. All Worcestershire (in a sense) sided with the king, whilst Richard Baxter, though loyal to the monarchy, sided with the parliament. He recommended the 'protestation.'
