Стр. 261 - Receive the Holy Ghost for the Office and work of a Priest in the Church of God, now committed unto thee by the Imposition of our hands. Whose sins thou dost forgive, they are forgiven; and whose sins thou dost retain, they are retained.
Стр. 296 - I protest before God and your lordships, that I profess and allow with my heart the true religion presently professed within this realm, and authorised by the laws thereof ; I shall abide thereat, and defend the same to my life's end, renouncing the Roman religion called papistry.
Стр. 168 - Not found : and then the party is discharged without farther answer. But a fresh bill may afterwards be preferred to a subsequent grand jury. If they are satisfied of the truth of the accusation, they then endone upon it, A true bill ; anciently, Billa vera.
