After the disputation at Oxford a report seems to have been raised that some of the preachers who were then imprisoned in London were to be sent to Cambridge, to hold a similar disputation there.

4 Burnet adds, “ Bonner seemed to think of no way of reducing any but by severity and force; so that the Council found it necessary to put bim in mind of his pastoral care.” Bonner might, perhaps, have less turn for preaching, and less reliance on it, than his predecessor; and he might remember the time when the Protector Somerset and King Edward's Council had thought there was too much preaching in Essex, and had directed Bishop Ridley to take order for moderating it. -See Strype, Mem. vol. ii.
