Reason V.
Reason VI.

Reason VII.
Reason VIII.
Reason IX.
Reason X.
Reason XI.
Reason XII.
Reason XIII.
Reason XIV.
1. Obj. As for the First, all that they alledge centres in this, namely, That the Expedient is impracticable, because people are generally so base, deceitful and dishonest, that one may not trust another; and (say some) Let the Poor beg, starve, steal, and be hang'd and damn'd; it's best for me and mine to keep our Money whilst we have it.
2. Obj. The most important Objection is of the latter, which calls loud for Answer: We approve (say they) of the thing, but 'tis next to impossible, that this Honourable House should take Cognizance thereof before they have establisht and se∣cured that Religion which God hath appointed for his own Worship and Service, without which, all hope of obtaining his Mercies and Blessings for the Wealth and Prosperity of the Kingdom is in vain.
