Excerpt from The Catholic Question in America: Whether a Roman Catholic Clergyman Be in Any Case Compellable to Disclose the Secrets of Auriecular Confession; Decided at the Court of General Sessions, in the City of New York

Of which can be of authority in the United States, both hav ing been decided since our revolution.-i go farther - I say the cases would not be binding in Great Britain.
