Letter III: The Injustice, Absurdity, and Nullity of the Censure of M. Arnauld --
Letter IV: Of Actual Grace, and of Sins of Ignorance --
Letter V: The Design of the Jesuits in establishing a new Morality. Two Kinds of Casuists amongst them: the great Remissness of the one, and the equal Rigidity of the other. Reason of this Difference. Explanation of the Doctrine of Probability. A Crowd of modern and obscure Authors substituted for the Holy Fathers --
Letter VI: The different Artifices of the Jesuits to evade the Authority of the Gospel, the Councils, and the Popes. Consequences which follow from their Doctrine of Probability. Their Abatements in favour of the Clergy, Monks, and Servants. History of John d'Alba --
Letter VII: On the Method of directing the Attention. The Permission to kill in defence of Honour and of Property, which is extended to Priests and Friars. A Curious Question proposed by Caramuel, namely, whether the Jesuits may kill the Jansenists? --
Corrupt Maxims of the Casuists respecting Judges, Usurers, the Contract Mohatra, Bankrupts, Restitutions, &c.-Various other extravagant Notions --
Letter IX: The false Worship of the Virgin Mary which the Jesuits have introduced. The various Facilities they have invented to procure Salvation without any Trouble and amidst the Indulgences of Life. Their Maxims respecting Ambition, Envy, Gluttony, Equivocation, Mental Reservations, the Liberty which young Females enjoy, the Habits of Women, Gaming, and the Manner of hearing Mass --
Letter X: Mitigating Expedients of the Jesuits with regard to the Sacrament of Penitence. Their Maxims respecting Confession, Satisfaction, Absolution, Occasions of Sin, Contrition, and the Love of God --
Letter XI: Ridiculous Errors may be refuted by Raillery. The Precautions it is necessary to use, which the Author have observed, but which have not been regarded by the Jesuits. The Impious Buffooneries of Fathers le Moine and Garasse --
Letter XII: Refutation of the Quirks and Turns of the Jesuits on the Subjects of Almsgiving and Simony --
Refutation of the Reply of the Jesuits to the Last Letter --
Letter XIII: The Doctrine of Lessius respecting Murder the same with that of Victoria. The Ease with which we pass from Speculation to Practice. Reason why The Jesuits make use of this vain Distinction, and how unavailing it is to their Justification --
Letter XIV: Jesuitical Maxims on the subject of Homicide refuted by the Holy Fathers. Reply, in passing, to some of their Calumnies, and a Comparison of their Doctrine with the Form observed in pronouncing Judgement in Criminal Casese --
Letter XV: The Jesuits omit Calumny in their Catalogue of Crimes, and make no Scruple of using it against their Enemies --
Letter XVI: The horrible Calumnies of the Jesuits against Pious Ecclesiastics and Holy Monks --
Letter XVII: By the unanimous Consent of all the Divines, and particularly of the Jesuits, the Authority of the Popes and of Œcumenical Councils is not infallible in Questions of Fact --
Letter XVIII: Evidence still more incontestable adduced even from Father Annat's Reply, that no Heresy exists in the Church. Everybody condemns the Doctrine which the Jesuits impute to Jansenius; and thus all Christians agree on the Subject of the Five Propositions. Difference respecting the Questions of Right and Fact pointed out. With regard to the latter, one ought to rely more upon our own Senses than upon any human Authority.
