The Introduction by Thomas claims that baptism by immersion was, except for extraordinary circumstances, the accepted mode in England until the time of the Westminster Assembly in 1644. Whitsitt, in his A Question in Baptist History undertook to prove that baptism by immersion was not introduced among the English Baptists until the year 1641, and infers that Roger Williams was not baptised by immersion. Henry Melville King is stirred to respond.
