'A suspected person'

Most histories of the Oxford Movement tend to peter out after Newman crossed the Tiber. Pusey, despite being suspended from preaching for a time, carried on, under circumstances which would have tried the patience of a saint. This extract from a letter to Gladstone in 1847 has a particular poingance.

The 1840s were a time of trial for members of the Oxford Movement, and Pusey found himself on the defensive. But, as this extract from a letter to Gladstone shows, he was far from despairing. One wonders how often, if at all, contemporary politicians write about God.
