PCA Citation to Louisiana Presbytery

As with the Indictment, I tried to preserve the formatting of the original document as much as possible. The dots are added in the header to try to come close to the original lineup, but it isn’t quite right. The indenting didn’t come out quite right, either. For all this, I apologize.

Stay tuned for comment later today.
