The great Worke that God is conceaved now to bee about for the good of his church is the Church-Policy or goverment. That of the Ceremonies is the last part of it. Pagit hase begun at the most ticklish point which cannot bee cleared except a World of other new truths bee premised, et so happily it may proove a special Providence. Those truths are very Spiritual in so much that divers here of the godlier sort are not capable of them, yet it may bee they will bee when greater light in the particulars shall bee discovered vnto them. All those other Ordinances have been hitherto Humane, so the Genevans had a mixture of them, and therfore no marvile that they sped no better. This ordnance or Policy will bee one of the best Meanes for the advancing of Godlines that ever hase beene. Anon. de Theoria a pretty booke. This point a greater matter then wee are aware on't.

Plutarch Seneca Tully being spiritualized become excellent Authors. All good book's may bee bought for 3. hundred lib. in Theologicis Treatises of the choisest things should bee mad or compiled out of Fathers. The best way of Reading was to make References of all what one reades exscribing nothing, only making the References very particular, i.e. subduing it into many particular Axioms or Propositions. Commentarii should bee written as Ainsworth explaining only the Words phrases et sense. Wee spend most our time in tasting of bookes, not in chewing. Selected bookes are to bee often read over.

Duræus knowes Monsieur de Cardes which is also a great friend to Reineri. Cardes excellency lyes especially in the Mathematikes.
Hee hase an Algebra Nova by plus et minus to discover truths by false-hoods which also could bee easily dived into. In Catoptricis et Opticis generally hee is admirable. Hee discoursed with Mr Dury complaining of the Vncertainties of all things, which Dury refuteth by the truths and certainty of those reports in the Scripture and an infallible way of interpreting them which hee denyed. But being brought to many absurdities left of. Indeed Dury himself was in great straits once in these very particulars, hee could finde no certainties almost in any thing, though hee was able to discourse as largely of any thing as any other, yet solidly and demonstratively hee knew nothing, till hee betooke himself to the Scriptures and lighted vpon the infallible way of interpreting them. Hee professeth that hee could beare much with Men and grant them a great latitude of judgment and differences if they were honest and godly. Yet it was necessary to study the reconciling of doctrines by a rational way of interpreting the sense of the Scriptures which hee had fallen of late to set downe though something imperfectly with Iustinus ab Asher vpon the 1 Psalm. Methodizing his reflexed thoughts and given both Rules and Exampels for it. Hee hase also a general Method of Genesis et Analysis for the study of all things. Duræus.

And that there is a 2 fold knowledge. One that is spun out of the entrals of the things themselves 2 another which is conveyed vnto vs or taught vnto vs by Reports. In this when we vnderstand the things that are reported and know how to examine the certainty of the report then wee know it fully. Now in humane and natural things the Reports are easily known, in divinity wee have the Reports of the Scripture where wee are to learne the infallible way of interpreting them. Id.

The only way to crush the Arminians or to bring them in to renounce their Tenents. Now they curry favor almost with every
sect to make or to joine themselves to a party. So they curry now favor with the Lutherans, Socinians, Anabaptists, being but shut out by the Calvinists. Much more when from all Protestancy they are so solemly excluded they wil bee made more odious, or bee brought to renounce their fundamental vntruths and to come at least to our fundamentals Truths. Et therfore the Professors of Leiden were resolved to make thus their Declaration that <any which hold> such et such fundamentals shal not bee shut vp. Duræus promised according to law not to goe about to
bring reconcile the Arminian faction. The Church of Holland have written about 40 years agoe a letter printed of Pacification with the Lutherans wherin they declare their readines. Now no more to bee done but if king wil to charge his Ministers of State abroad to write to Saxony and Brandenburg and to vrge the Execution of the decree made at Francfort last. Wee must have no more of the [symbol: Roman Church or Archbishop Laud] yet hee must bee made acquaint with all. Else hee will oppose it et become an Enemy to it. Et if now hee should crush it all the world would see the foulnes of his face.
