      JRS: RC priests, along with Armenian and Nestorian clergy, were indeed
      received in sacerdotal rank; but Anglican clergy had to be reordained,
      at least in the Russian Church. There was an opinion by some that they
      could be received "in statu quo", but if this was ever actually done,
      it was not the accepted or normal procedure.
