29. This day I held against Oates , the Anabaptist, morning and afternoon, argument that they had no ministry, and that particular christians out of office had no power to send ministers out to preach, he confessed it, and held only to do what he did as a disciple; I showed him it was contrary to scripture; our discourse was without passion. the man boldly continued in town till wednesday, exercising all three days.
