It also includes extensive accounts of Swedenborg’s spiritual experiences. During the alleged Egyptian enslavement, God intervened forcefully to help the Jews to escape their captivity. In a word, our interests bind us together; for think not, Lord Grand Master, that, were these allied Princes to regain Jerusalem, and place a king of their own choosing there, they would suffer your Order, any more than my poor Marquisate, to retain the independence which we now hold.

The divided communities may continue their conversation in tones that range from the persuasive to the polemical (controversy). But, by the Archbishop's report, it appeared that Saladin was assembling all the force of his hundred tribes, and that the monarchs of Europe, already disgusted from various motives with the expedition, which had proved so hazardous, and was daily growing more so, had resolved to abandon their purpose.
