Title
An Apology for the Colonial Clergy of Great Britain: Specially for Those of Lower and Upper Canada
Abstract
The author (1795-1868), an Anglican minister in Drummondville and Trois-Rivières, Quebec, wrote this pamphlet as an attack on the Colonial Clergy Act of 1819. This Act prevented clergymen ordained by colonial bishops from discharging the duties of priest in an ecclesiastical province in England except with the special permission of the archbishop of that province. The booklet briefly describes the problems Church of England clergymen faced in Canada, particularly respecting Catholics and Dissenters.
