LETTER ,

ON

THE CORONATION OATH,

то

AN ENGLISH LAYMAN.

MY DEAR FRIEND,

I HAVE received your Letter, in which you thank me for giving to the world the interesting and valuable Correspondence of our late revered Sovereign with Lord Kenyon and Mr. Pitt. You need not, however, be told, that some of our common friends have doubted the

expediency of that publication; while many of our opponents have affected to rejoice at it, as a measure decidedly favourable to their views. In particular, the British Roman Catholic Association, very soon after the correspondence appeared, passed a resolution to print and circulate it in an edition of their own ;-a resolution, which, I am sorry to say, seems to be not yet carried into effect.—Mr. Charles Butler,
