Context of A friendly epistle to the reverend clergy : and nonconforming divines, who greatly approve of my late epistle to Mr. George Kieth [sic] against plunging, and for sprinkling in baptism. Wherein is proved, I. That the proofs commonly brought for plunging are precarious and frivolous; and that there are more arguments against it then what I have yet named. II. That the face or head must be washt in baptism without other parts of the body, not other parts of the body without them. III. That it is more then probable, our baptism is of God, plunging not so, from the woful stamp found on the anabaptists first reformers. With a censure of an epistle to Mr. Keith, against mine to him, by a nameless man, (or men) whose silence here brings another thought to my mind against plunging. That it is made a plain, necessary duty, tho' the scripture be silent about any one precept, or example, or one good consequence for it; and therefore plunging being thus nameless is folly.
