To give notice to the clergy and others that the seditious suggestions set forth in the book called "The Gaping Gulf" were without foundation; and that special noted preachers should declare the same to the people.

[By an entry in the Council Register, dated Greenwich, 5 October 1579, it appears that letters relative to the book "The Gaping Gulf" were directed to eleven of the Bishops, "the minute of which remains in the Council Chest." As there are eleven copies here unfinished, some signed, others not fully signed, and some not signed at all, it is probable that none were sent, and that the matter dropped.]
