In early September of that year Thomas Barber, the suspended preacher of Bow and a leading London classis member, made a full and valuable deposition. In October, Snape's parishioners were asked to repeat that conversation in the great seat of St Peter's church which suggested that their pastor was expecting and preparing for a Presbyterian revolution, although none of them was able to confirm that Snape had used the crucial phase, all in one day. But it was not until October 13th and 30th respectively that the prize witnesses and the only really disloyal brethren, Thomas Edmunds and John Johnson, were examined. Crucial questions about the attitude of the puritans to the royal supremacy and the Church of England were bypassed, and none of the witnesses could be said to have established beyond question that the Book of Discipline had been put in practice.
