The path of the just cleared; and cruelty and tyranny laid open. Or a few words to you priests, and magistrates of this nation, [electronic resource] : (who say we deny the Scriptures, and that we are antichrists and deceivers, and that we deny the word of God,) wherein your oppression and tyranny is laid open, which by you is unjustly acted against the servants of the living God, who by the world which hate the light of Christ, are in derision called Quakers. ... Also the ground and cause of the imprisonment of George Whitehead and John Harwood, who are sufferers for the innocent truths sake, in the goal of Bury in Suffolk. Also a copy of a paper, which a servant of the Lord called Richard Clayton, was moved to set upon a steeple-house door at Bury in Suffolk, for which he was caused to be whipped by one Thomas Waldergrave, justice of the peace in the said county. / From the spirit of the living God in me, whose name in the flesh in George Whitehead, who for Sions sake cannot hold my peace, but testifie against her oppressors: who am a sufferer as aforesaid, the 4. day of the 7. month. 1655. Also, a paper against the sin of idleness, which we declare against, and live out of; and are diligent serving the Lord, though that sin be cast upon us, yet it we deny, with all other sins and ungodliness, which is contrary to the Gospel of Christ
