HC Deb 13 May 1825 vol 13 cc589-90
Sir J. Newport

said, that his hon. and learned friend, the member for Winchelsea, had received a letter from Dr. Doyle, which, in justice to that rev. gentleman, whose feelings had been wounded by something which had passed in the House, he would take the liberty of reading. The right hon. baronet then read the letter, in which the writer complained, that it had been attributed to him that the opinions expressed in the writings published under the signature of J. K. L., and those delivered in his evidence before the parliamentary committee, were inconsistent with each other. He denied that the opinions contained in his writing could—unless they were distorted from their true and original meaning—be proved to be inconsistent with his evidence. He also declared that, in all the writings which he had published during the course of six years, he had ever expressed a most respectful opinion of the constitution, creed, and liturgy of the established church, although most of those writings were answers to unmerited attacks on his own religion and church.
