George, Lord Bishop of Rochester, to the Clergy of His Diocese, at the Triennial Visitation, Holden in October 1843Reverend Brethren,I was induced to defer meeting you, until a later period of the year than usual, in the expectation that the Bill, which was brought into Parliament for the regulation of the Ecclesiastical Courts, would have conferred on me the peculiar jurisdiction, at present exercised in this Diocese by our Metropolitan, in which case I was desirous that an opportunity might be afforded me of including the Peculiars in my present Visitation. The measure in question, as you are aware, was withdrawn at the conclusion of the session, and it now appears to be doubtful whether, in the event of its being hereafter adopted, the jurisdiction of the Archbishop will cease until further meditated changes shall take place in this Diocese.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
