Patrick Collinson

Oxford University Press

The militant voice of the puritan press was a strong indication that the leadership of the puritan movement had now found a sense of purpose and direction for which it was merely groping before 1584. The correspondence of the country conferences with London now carried a stream of news and suggestions. The correspondence between Dedham and Colchester ministers to Field revealed a common desire for a general meeting, and it was proposed that an assembly representing Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Kent, and London should meet in London in late August. The Dedham papers show that London proposed the names of the delegates for this meeting from north, central, and south Essex, and suggested that they should confront the queen with a general supplication, embodying a draught of the discipline desired, as well as a statement of the reasons for which subscription was refused.
