a complaint framed by the Commons of England in 1628, and addressed to Charles I, setting, forth the increase of popery in consequence of the relaxation of the penal laws; the preferments given to papists; and a commission being issued to compound for the penalties incurred by popish recusants. It also described the discouragement shown to orthodox preachers and teachers, and the prohibition of their books. The king attempted to suppress this remonstrance, and afterwards published an answer to its allegations.
