The General Assembly, with consent of a majority of Presbyteries, ENACT  and ORDAIN,—

That, when a Presbytery are themselves the libellers in a case of charge against a Minister of this Church, they shall, before serving the libel, summon the accused party in regular form to attend a meeting of Presbytery at which it shall be proposed to consider the propriety of serving it, and they shall, at the same time, furnish him with a copy of it. That the meeting shall not be held for at least ten free days after the Minister shall have been summoned and been furnished with a copy of the libel. That at that meeting, the Presbytery shall carefully consider the question of its relevancy ; and that thereafter, if they serve it, they shall serve it as a libel which they have already judged to be relevant.
