Note 2.
There is a well-authenticated anecdote of Cromwell. On a certain occasion, when his troops were about to cross a river to attack the enemy, he concluded an address, with these words: “Put your trust in God; but mind to keep your powder dry!”—Hayes: Ballads of Ireland, vol. 1, p. 191. [back]
Note 3.
The Americans equally detest the pageantry of a king and the supercilious hypocrisy of a bishop.—Junius: Letter xxxv. Dec. 19, 1769. Compare the anonymous poem “The Puritans’ Mistake,” published by Oliver Ditson in 1844:—
  “Oh, we are weary pilgrims; to this wilderness we bring
  A Church without a bishop, a State without a King.”

  It [Calvinism] established a religion without a prelate, a government without a king.—George Bancroft: History of the United States, vol. iii, chap. vi. [back]
