PRE FACE.

The design of the following work is to exhibit, in a form as little repulsive as the nature of the subject will allow, some of the phenomena of Religious Intolerance, especially as it has been displayed in a Protestant form, and to indicate the mistaken principle in which these melancholy results have had their origin.

It has been no part of the author's aim to advocate any distinctive form of doctrine or polity; but rather to show how any religious system, whether Episcopal, Presbyterian or Congregational, may become vitiated and perverted by its alliance with the powers of the state, and by the assumption, exclusiveness and worldly pride, which such a connection invariably engenders.
