About this work
Unattributed by Wing, attributed to William himself by the Bodleian. Both copies have the same Wing number, but a different record on EEBO. The unattributed copy, from BL, is UMI Collection / reel number:Tract Supplement / C13:3, the Bodleian's is UMI Collection / reel number:Wing / 637:24. It is almost certainly by John Humfrey, and is closely related to several other works whose connection with Humfrey is indisputable. Contains Humfrey’s Comprehension with indulgence of 1674 (H3675A), mutatis mutandis, in a manner identical to the use Humfrey made of it in The Answer to Dr Stillingfleet’s Book of 1680 (H3668). There is a strong case, therefore, for attributing King William’s Toleration to Humfrey. The bill in it is not the one before Parliament in 1689, as stated in the EEBO record at C13:3, but a revision of the bill before Parliament in 1681 proposed in the 1682 publication attributed to Edward Polhill, The Samaritan.
