Excerpt from A Second Letter to the Right Rev. Francis Patrick Kenrick, Roman Catholic Bishop of Philadelphia

Your answer to my letter, I must frankly confess, has dis appointed me. Considering your Address to the whole body of our bishops, however well intended, as a serious assault upon our ecclesiastical integrity, impeaching, alike, our con sistency as Christians, and our honesty as men, I invited you to an open and public discussion of the doctrines contained in the Well-known Thirty-nine Articles, which involve not only the profession of our faith, but the condemnation, in many important points, of yours. And I proposed this course, because I thought it was the most direct and effect ive mode of defending those principles, to which we stand so solemnly pledged, and thus - so far as my humble agency was concerned - of freeing the Church from a most injurious and unjust aspersion. On the other hand, it secured to you an equal opportunity to substantiate your charge, and con vict us, if you could, first, of having undertaken to reform What needed no reformation, and next, of having become weary of our task, and covertly desirous to return to the Roman Communion.

Placed, therefore, as I conceived you to be, in the position of a public accuser, my desire was to bring your accusation, in the fairest manner, to the test of public proof. And I did not see how, according to the usual maxims of justice, you could, with propriety, decline the appeal.
