Upon reading the Petition of the Chancellor, Masters,

and Scholars of the University of Cambridge; setting

forth, “That the Petitioners understand with great

“ Anxiety that another Bill is soon to be offered to their

“ Lordships for the removal of the Restrictions which

“ are imposed by Law on those who profess the Roman

Catholic Religion in these Realms: That the Petition-

ers are fully convinced, that the Control of any

Foreign Power, implied in such Bill, over the Govern-

ment of this Country either in Church or State, is not

only inconsistent with the Form of our Constitution

as established at the Revolution, but moreover, by

destroying the Independency of our Church and

Nation, is contrary to the first Principles of all Civil

Government: That the Power of the Pope, though for

various Reasons diminished in the Public Estimation,

is notwithstanding more to be dreaded by us now

than ever; being itself brought under the Control,

and if Occasion should offer, likely to become the

dangerous Instrument of a Foreign and inveterate

Enemy: That the Petitioners are the more confirmed

in the Apprehensions of Foreign Interference, by

observing, that notwithstanding all the Concessions

made of late Years by the Legislature in favour of

the Roman Catholics, yet the Tenets of their Church

have admitted of no Relaxation, but continue the

same as ever; particularly those the most obnoxious

and dangerous, of still advancing and maintaining the

Supremacy of the Pope in all Spiritual Matters above

the Supremacy of our own Sovereign : That the

Petitioners, as becomes a Protestant University, have

never been adverse to the Rights of Toleration or

Liberty of Conscience, to which they are and have

been most sincere Wellwishers, but they are most

seriously alarmed at the Idea entertained of admitting

Roman Catholics to legislate for a Protestant Church,
