The present tract before the reader is an exceedingly rare one indeed. According to David Wing's Short-Title Catalogue 1641-1700, only one copy of Spittlehouse and More's Vindication is known to be extant in any library in the world. And this copy resides at the American Baptist Historical Society in Rochester, New York. In terms of theme, this aspect of the tract is clearly manifest in the very title of the work. Messrs. Spittlehouse and More laboured to defend the doctrine of the perpetuity of Christ's assembly. And the kind of ekklesia they argue is perpetual is not the ecclesiastical nonentity that we have come to know through theological history as the universal invisible church, but rather a local congregation of immersed disciples who follow Christ and keep his commands. - Introduction

A confutation of the assertions of Mr. Samuel Oates : (in relation to his not practising the laying on of hands on all baptized believers) which are as followeth, viz. 1. That laying on of hands is not Gods ordinance, as it is practised on the aforesaid subjects, viz. on all baptized believers. 2. Neither as to the manner of performing the same, viz. 1. In that there is no injunction for more persons then one to lay on hands at once. 2. In that it is not restrained to the head. 3. In that there is no word of God to enjoyn the kneeling of the subject in the act of laying on of hands. 4. Neither to use words of expression when hands are on the subject. 3. Neither as to the end, as it is practised upon all baptized believers; for that the laying on of hands was, 1. To heal the sick. 2. For ordination of officers. 3. For giving miraculous gifts of the spirit, and not otherwise. 4. That no person ought to have the laying on of hands, that doth not believe that thereby he shall be healed of some disease, or receive some miraculous gift of the spirit. By John Spittlehouse, who doth contraryvvise affirm as followeth. (in relation to his not practising the laying on of hands on all baptized believers) which are as followeth, viz. 1.
