Cyties, with the holy sanctuary of God. And broughte in straunger Princes to reygne ouer them, and wycked Rulers to gouerne them, so that they were sure of hūger, sweord, pestilēce, and wylde beastes to deuour them. Which plages neuer cessed, vntyl the good people of god were cleane separated from the wycked idolatrous people. Oh dearely beloued, thys was written for our learning, that we throughe patiēce and comfort of the scriptures myght haue hope. And is it not in lyke case happened nowe in this realme of Englande? For nowe are the people of God had in derision, and troden vnderfoote, and the Cities, Townes, and houses wher they dwelt, are inhabited with them that haue no right thereunto, and the true owners are spoyled of their labours: yea, and the holye sanctuary of Gods most blessed word, is layde desolate and waste, so that the very Foxes run ouer it. &c. yet is it the foode of our soules, the lanterne to our feete, and the lyghte vnto oure pathes: and where it is not preached, there the people perish. But as the prophet sayth: he that refrayneth him selfe from euil, must be spoiled. Why should we then be abashed to be spoyled, seinge that it is tolde vs before, that it muste so happen vnto them that refraine from euil? And thus I byd you farewel in God.

Marginalia9.Item thou Rafe Allerton canst not deny, but that the letters writtē with bloud, beginning with these wordes in the ouer part thereof (The angel of God &c.) and ending thus (be with you Amen) and hauing also this postscript (do ye suppose that our brethren. &c.) remayning now registred in the actes of this court, are thyne owne hand writyng.

For the better vnderstandinge of this article, I haue also here inserted the copy of the letter, mencioned in the same. Whiche letter he wrote (by his owne confession) vnto Rychard Rothe, then in daunger of the subtyll snares of that bloudy woulfe, Boner.

A letter written by Rafe Allerton vnto Richard Roth, his fellow martyr.

THe angel of God pytch his tent about vs, and defend vs in all our wayes. Amen, Amen. O deare brother, I praye for you, for I heare say that you haue bene diuers tymes before my Lord at examination. for I was once with him. Wherfore take hede for Gods sake what the wyse man teacheth you, and shrynke not away when you are entised to confesse an vntruth for hope of lyfe, but be ready alwayes to geue an answer of the hope that is in you. For whosoeuer confesseth Christ before men, him wyl Christ also confesse before his father. But he that is ashamed to confesse him before men, shal haue his rewarde with them that do deny him. And therefore deare brother go fore ward. ye haue a redy way,. so fayre as euer had anye of the Prophetes or Apostles, or the rest of our brethren, the holye Martyrs of God. Therefore couet to go hence wyth the multitude, while the way is full. Also deare brother vnderstand that I haue seene your letter, and although I cannot rede it perfitely, yet I partlye perceiue your meaning therein, and verye fayne I would copy it out, with certaine com

The which as yet wyll not bee brought to passe for lacke of paper, vntyl my Lord be gonne from hence, and then your request shalbe accomplished, God wylling without delay. Thus fare ye wel in god. Our deare brother and fellowe in tribulation Robert Allen saluteth you, and the fellowshyp of the holy ghost be wyth you. Amen.

Rafe Allerton.

Doo ye suppose that our brethren and systern are not yet dispatched out of thys world? for I thynke that eyther they are dead, or shalbe within these. 2. dayes.

As for the other obiections yet remayning, and not specified, if it were not more somewhat to shew the folly of those bloudly blinded tirantes (which of so smal trifels take occasions to quarrel with the saintes of God) then for any weightye thing therein contained: I would neither trouble you with the reading thereof, not yet my selfe with wrytinge but iudge ye of them as their doinges do geue occasion. And now to proceede in my matter.

Marginalia10Item, thou Rafe Allerton canst not denye, but confessest, that the writinge of letters in a lytle peece of paper, on both sides of it, wyth thys sentence on the one syde following (looke at the foote of the stockes for a knife) and with thys sentence following, vpon the other syde (looke betwene the post and the wall for two bokes and two epistles, leaue them here whē ye go) remayning now in the Registrye and actes of thys court, is voluntarily written by thee Rafe Allerton, wyth thyne owne hand.

Marginalia11.Item, thou Rafe Allerton canst not deny, but that thou art priuy to a certaine writyng, remayning now in the Registry and actes of this court, the beginning whereof is with these woordes (I woulde haue men wise &c. and ending thus (from house to house.)

Marginalia12.Item, thou Rafe Allerton, canst not deny, but that thou art priuey and of consent and maintenaunce of a certen great woodknife, a long cord, a hoke, a stone and of a trencher written vpon with chalke, hauing this sentence: All is gone and loste, because of youre folly, of two bordes written vpon with chalke, thou hauing this sentence: vnder the stone loke, and the other hauing this sentence: where as ye bed mee take hede, I thanke you. I truste in God that I shallbe at peace with him shortly, remaining now registred in the actes of this courte.

For answer vnto these articles, he graunted that the first nine were true, as the Register recordeth. How beit, I finde noted in the backsyde of the information, specified in the second article, (although crossed out agayne) that he denyed suche thinges, as were ther in the same, informed against him. Wherfore it is not lykely that he dyd simply graunt vnto the contentes of the second article, but rather that he onely affirmed that such an information was giuen against him, and not that the same was true.

Thus much I thought to warne the Reader of, least that in mistaking his aunswers, it might seme that he graunted him selfe to be a
