The preliminary objection of Prof. Briggs, Nov. 9, 1892, to the status of the Committee of Prosecution.Dr. Briggs - I rise at this stage to make a preliminary objection which it is necessary for me to make here in order to maintain my rights of objecting to this committee in the status that it claims at the present time. I cannot permit them to act as a prosecuting committee until I challenge their right so to act, and have the Presbytery pass upon my preliminary objections.I do not mean to take up much time at present - no more than is absolutely necessary to bring the case in a proper form before the house. I was in hopes that the Synod of New York would decide their status at its last meeting by entertaining the complaint filed by 114 ministers and elders of the Presbytery- but the Synod did not take action upon the complaint, and virtually returned the matter to the Presbytery for reconsideration. The responsibility is thrown upon me, therefore, as an original party to again bring this question before the Presbytery. I cannot shirk it.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
