And Spòtfwood t adds, ' That the King in his 6 Anfwer to the Scotch Bifhöps, who entreated that thefe Images might not be put up for fear of Of- , fence ; anfwered, That forne of the Scots could ' not diftinguifh betwixt Pictures intended for Or- ' nament and Decoration, and Images ereaed for Worfhip and Adoration ; you°can endure Lyons, Dragons and Devils to be 6gur'd inyour Churches, but will not allow the like place to Patriarchs and Apoflles. However, his Majefty upon this Let- ' ter from the Bithops, gave order for flaying the ere&ing of thefe Portraits.' * Vol. IX. p. 399 } Hifàory, p. 53e. Neal,
