Text begins: The Queens Majesty being right sorry to understand that the order of Common-prayer, set forth by the common consent of the realm, and by authority of Parliament, in the first year of her reign, wherein is nothing contained but the Scripture of God, and that which is consonant unto it, is now of late of some men despised, and spoken against, both by open preachings, and writings, and of some bold and vain curious men, new and other rites found out and frequented, whereupon contentions, sects and disquietness doth arise among her people: and for one godly and uniform order, diversity of rites and ceremonies, disputations and contentions, schism and divisions already risen, and more like to ensue. The cause of which disorders, her Majesty doth plainly understand to be the negligence of the Bishops and other Magistrates, who should cause the good laws and acts of Parliament made in this behalf to be better executed and not so dissembled and winked at, as hitherto (it may appear) that they have been.
