Edward Geare - ECCLESIASTICAL INTELLIGENCE, Our Wolverhampton...
ECCLESIASTICAL INTELLIGENCE, Our Wolverhampton correspondent says: Tho Bishop of Lichfield has summoned a diocesan synod for Wednesday. The following incumbents have refused to attend: The Revs. S. C. Adam, Edward Geare, and J. E. Gladstone, Wolverhampton; and A. B, Irvlno and R. Wall, West Bromwich. In communicating with his Lordship they state that all such assemblies ceased 350 years ago', and the innovation Involves very important consequences. Such synods, they contend, are illegal without royal permission.
