Excerpt from A Letter to a Member of Parliament Concerning the Bill for Preventing the Growth of Schism Though I have had the Misfortune to appear an unworthy Member of your House, and am expelled, accordingly, from my Seat in Parliament, I am t by that Vote (which was more important to the People of England than I shall at this Time explain) deprived of the common Benefits of Life, Liberty, or any other Enjoyment of a rational Being. And I do t think I can better bestow my Time, or employ these Advantages, than in doing all in my Power to preserve them to others as well as my self, and in asserting the Right of my Fellow Subjects against any thing which I apprehend to be an Encroachment upon what they ought to enjoy as Men, and what they are legally possessed of as Englishmen, or, if you will, as Britons.
