as members of the Church of England, to look to that Church.
You are summoned hither to discuss the propriety of establishing a Branch of this Church Missionary Society in this city; under the patronage, not of the Lord Bishop of this diocese, but of the Lord Bishop of Gloucester; who, himself, as Dean of Wells, owes canonical obedience to the Bishop of Bath and Wells; and who, moreover, has no manner of jurisdiction in this city, nor in this diocese, beyond his deanery.
As Archdeacon of Bath,
In the name of the Lord Bishop of this diocese-in my own name-in the name of the Rectors of Bath-and in the name of nineteen twentieths of the Clergy in my jurisdiction
I PROTEST against the formation of such Society in this city.
Whether, or in what manner, the Hon. and Right Rev. Vice-Patron and his friends will condescend to notice this PROTEST,I shall not stay to see.
