in consequence of the missive, monogamy, penned by Lynn Marie
"...there was a peculiar tenet which I made a point of supporting: for I maintained with Whiston, that it was unlawful for A PRIEST (emphasis mine) of the Church of England, after the death of his first wife, to take a second, or, to express it in one word, I valued myself upon being a strict monogamist."
However, I don't see what this has to do with Mr. Wilmot who is NOT a priest of the Church of England. Perhaps the vicar misspoke and he meant to include ALL widows and widowers.
