"T. Sarum" = Thomas Burgess, Bishop of Salisbury.
Summary : Burgess concurs with his correspondent's opinion on Milton's Defensio secunda and is surpised that it should have been misrepresented by Bisop Watson [of Llandaff] and misunderstood by "Symmons & Todd". He has sent a copy of Milton's Tract on true religion published "the year before his death", which he [Burgess] is reprinting. His Preface to it on Milton's religious principles "is in the printer's hands" and a copy will be sent.
The "copy of Milton's Tract on true religion" refers to the apparent 'proof' copy of this text of Milton's "Treatise of true religion, heresy, schism, toleration, and what best means may be used against the spread of popery" which occurs as item 4 of this volume.
In his letter sent the next day, June 1st, 1826 to the same correspondent Burgess corrects his reference to Milton's "Defensio secunda" here to the "Defensio pro populo Anglicano". [Item 4A in this volume].

This letter pre-dates the letter at 4A and they have been bound up in the volume in the wrong order.
