Hi, It is coming from Colonel Jack by Defoe. My question; Defoe is using very long sentences, this is one of those. What I wonder that if these bold ones form the main sentence? It's very complex. But getting good advice from a priest at Bar le Duc, who, though I did not tell him the particulars of my case, yet guessed how it was, it being, as he said, very usual for gentlemen in my circumstances to fly that way;--upon this supposition, this kind _padre_ got me a church pass; that is to say, he made me a purveyor for the abbey of ----, and, as such, got me a passport to go to Deux Ponts, which belonged to the king of Sweden.
