Cotton's antagonists, tells us, “That their reasons for wishing to confer with him, rather than any other, on these weighty points, were their knowledge of his approved godliness, his great learning, candor, and mild disposition, whereby he could bear, with equanimity of temper, the arguments of others who might differ from him in their opinions.
