J. Nisbet & Company, 1842 - 91 pages
Describes from the Presbyterian viewpoint the doctrinal views of the Scottish Episcopalians concerning the lack of validity of sacraments administered outside the episcopalian form of church, and most particularly those views as applied to Scottish Presbyterians. The appendix uses the arguments of the Episcopalians themselves to refute the validity of their own sacraments.

Page 42 - See that ye all follow your Bishop, as Jesus Christ, the Father : and the Presbytery, as the Apostles. And reverence the deacons, as the command of God.
