5 2 Mr. N E A `'s 11d col. of the And Mr. Collier adds*, ' That in his Perfor- mance, (upon the Revelations) he feems to be tin&uredwith the Spirit of Enthufiafm. For upon Chap. xiv. ver: 18. he makes Archbifhop Cran- mer the Angel to have power over the Fire; and Chap. xvi. ver% 5. he makes the Lord Treafurer t Cecil the Angel of the Waters, juftifying the pour- , ing forth of the third Vial.' Neal, Ibid. The King having given the Reins of the Church into the hands of the Prelates, and their De- pendants; thefe in returnpreach'd and printed for the Prerogative. And happy had it been if the Reins had always been in the hands of the Prelates, then the Prero- gative had been fife, which, he knows, was far t therwife, when the Reins were put in the hands of his darling Presbyterians. Neal, Ibid. Two Books were publifhed, that maint- tain'd the moll extravagant Maxims, of arbitrary PO er. Onewas writ by Cowel, Dottor of the Civil Law, and Vicar-General to the Archbifhop, wherein he affirms, r. That the King is not bound by the Laws, or his Coronation-Oath, 2. That he is not obliged to call Parliaments to make Laws, but may do it without them. 3. That ii isgreat Favour to admit the Confent mf the Subjea in giving Suhfidies. King 7ames's diflike of thefe Pofitions in Cowel, appears, I think, from his Speech to the two Houfes it White-Hall, 21 March, 1709 -j-. ' The other Branch (fays he) is anent the Common Law, which force had a conceit I difliked, and (in refpe& ' I was born where another Form of Law was efta- blifhed) that I would have wifhed the Civil Law ' to have been put in place of the Common Law, ' for the Government of this People.
