Hello. This is from a newspaper article from 1834: "The reader will remember with what a flourish it was introduced by the Mad: what gratitude they showed to his Lordship ; what congratulation they offered to the country on his magnanimous determination; and above all, how happy they felt that they should be spared, the gentle souls! from the pain and danger of bringing the clergy into elision with the people. "Nun meus est sermo."" I can't figure out the meaning of the expression "to bring into elision with" here. Could anyone put me in the picture please? Thank you in advance.
