A vindication of those who take the oath of allegiance, to His present Majestie from perjurie, injustice and disloyaltie, charged upon them by such as are against it. Wherein is evidently shewed that the common good of a nation is what is primarily and principally respected in an oath, and therefore when the oath is inconsistent with that, the persons who have taken it, are absolved from it. In proving of which the case of Maud and King Stephen is particularly consider'd. In a letter to a non-juror.
