The constitution of the group begins: "Whereas, we believe the system of Popery to be, in its principles and tendency, subversive of civil and religious liberty, and destructive to the spiritual welfare of men, we unite for the purpose of defending our Protestant interests against the great exertions now making to propagate that system in the United States..."--p.7. 94 members included: Stephen H. Tyng, Cornelius C. Cuyler, D. L. Carroll, H.A. Boardman, Ashbel Green, John S. Inskip, and Thomas Hoge.

William McGavin (1773-1832) "proponent of evangelical Protestantism and religious controversialist...His best known work is The Protestant, a weekly issued at Glasgow 1819-22. Statements in this led to his being tried for libel, successfully, in 1821. His interest in such polemic seems to have come from reading Thomas McCulloch of Nova Scotia. McGavin's work, though prejudiced and narrow, derives its power from a forceful, satirical style."--J.F. McCaffrey in Dict. Scottish Church History & Theology, p.514. Allibone quotes Robert Hall re this work: "The Protestant, a series of periodical papers composed by Mr. McGavin of Glasgow, contains the fullest delineation of the Popish system, and the most powerful confutation of its principles, in a popular style, that we have seen."

Pamphlet in pink paper wrapper, title on wrapper, wrapper splitting top and bottom 2cm along spine, wrapper faded around edges, pages lightly tanning, otherwise good condition. Pagination: [1]-19pp, (1) blank; plus wrapper.

The author reviews French church history from the beginnings illustrating that the French Catholic church has always been somewhat independent of Rome. He then discusses the Separation of Acts of 1906, which "assures, in France, the liberty of conscience and guarantees the free practice of religions, subject only to the restrictions in the interest of public order. It declares that the Republic neither recognizes nor subsidizes any religion, and will, after January 1, 1906, omit from the budget all expenses connected with the practice of religions..." He wonders at the in Americans who are demonstrating against the French law, and closes with a resolution to the Reformed Churches in France that was adopted by the Western Section of the Exec. Comm. of the Alliance of Reformed Churches. With this pamphlet is a sheet, printed one side titled "The Religious Situation in France." The sheet along with Prime's comments publishes an anonymous letter to Prime in response to his speech. The writer of the letter addresses Prime thus: "Prime, You Turkey-Buzzard, Pin Head. don't you know that the Roman Catholic church will live and be triumphal. when you and your reform fools are ded and forgotten. and also when your old rotten body has rotted in its grave. M. Briand, U.P. P.S. You may meet me sooner or later."
