* I DO NOT HOLD THE MAXIM, THAT FROM THEIR
“ SCRUPLES ABOUT THE OATH OF SUPREMACY THEY ARE
A DISLOYAL PEOPLE:

“ I DO NOT HOLD, THAT THEY MAINTAIN ANY SUCH
“ BELIEF, AS THAT THE POPE MAY DEPOSE PROTESTANT
“ PRINCES, OR ABSOLVE CATHOLIC SUBJECTS FROM ALLE-
“ GIANCE TO THEM; OR THAT NO FAITH IS TO BE KEPT
“ WITH HERETICS, OR PERSONS OF A DIFFERENT RELI-
GIOUS PERSUASION FROM THEMSELVES."
