"But besides the Full Confutation the libel now before us contains a Seventh Letter to Father Sheldon, an Authentic Certificate from the most Holy Inquisition, and many other demonstrative proofs confirming the charge brought against me. And it is chiefly to examine these demonstrative proofs that might stagger, if suffered to pass unexamined, some well-meaning though less discerning Protestants, that I now resume the subject. I shall begin with his first demonstration, the disagreement between Father Piazza's account and mine of the story of the Country Clergyman, whence my Antagonist has taken occasion to display his throat, and exclaim, and declaim, and abuse, and rail, like a mad-man, for several pages together. I shall lay before the reader this furious man's pretended demonstrations, and my Answers to them, opposite to each other, by way of Charge and Defence, in one and the same page ... My Antagonist's outragious invectives I have, for the most part, overlooked, as they serve only to show his monkish, fierce, persecuting spirit, to the great disgrace of the Protestant religion, if he is a Protestant, and the unparallel'd rancour, malignity, and venom of his enraged soul, to the great dishonour of human nature itself."--Page 2. Bower quotes several of Douglas's accusations in which Bower had made factual errors, and shrugs that they do "not impeach my veracity, but only my memory." Father Piazza was a vicar of the Inquisition at Osima, Italy
