AND IS IT POSSIBLE TO REFORM IT 1 Parsons, The answer to the first of these questions will go pretty nearly to answer the second; because, though no human being can describe the present state of this Church in its true colours; though the Church in its present state is so contrary to natural justice, so outrageously insulting to the reason and common sense of the nation, that neither pen nor tongue can furnish an adequate description of it; still that which I shall be able to state will be enough to show to every man of sense and reflection, that this establishment admits of no reform; and that, as it arose out of Acts of Parliament, so it ought to be put an end to by Acts of Parliament. I shall consider the state of the Church under two heads: its revenues; and the performance of its duties: and I must beseech the reader's attention not only to the facts that I have to state; but to the proofs which I produce of the truth of those facts, moving, as I shall, not one single step without undoubted proof of every single fact.

Within my recollection, many men have been put into jail, and kept there for a long time, for refusing to m...
