Some puritan ministers were now ready for an honourable reconciliation with the bishops; others were on the point of repudiating their government altogether. The risk of a serious rift was acute in the summer of 1584, when in most dioceses terms were offered which enabled the moderates to resume their ministries with a quiet conscience. Such a settlement had been made at the beginning, with the Sussex delegation. Two months later, fifteen of the more moderate London ministers offered a conditional subscription of the same kind, which Field had already declared to be naught. On June 24th, Whitgift could still certify forty-nine recusants in his province, without taking into account the puritan strongholds of East Anglia, Essex, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, and London. But soon after this, the majority seems to have yielded to the various forms of accommodation now offered.
