Sivu 120 - Protestantism as insolent and insidious, and I therefore feel as indignant as you can do upon the subject. I not only promoted, to the utmost of my power, the claims of...
Sivu 121 - I have little hope that the propounders and framers of these innovations will desist from their insidious course.
