Never did the excellency of the Episcopal Government appear so demonstratively and conspicuously as now. Under their conduct and order we had a church so united, so orderly, so governed; a religion so settled ; articles so true, sufficient and confessed

; prudent and so obeyed ; devotions so regular and constant; sacraments so adorned and ministered ; churches so beauteous and religious ; circumstances of religion so grave and prudent, so useful and apt for edification, that the enemies of our church knew no hopes but by setting their faces against us, to destroy this government; and then they knew they should triumph without an enemy. So Balaam the son of Beor was sent for, to curse the people of the Lord, in hope that the son of Zippor might prevail against them that had long prospered under the conduct of Moses and Aaron.
