force whether they doe or no: once he was sure that he lost his lyfe for offendyng his Prince, and the lawe dyd put it in execution: but this concerning that man, he sayd that he thought it pleased God so to rayse hym vp from a lowe estate, and to place hym in hyghe authoritie, partly vnto this ende, that he should doe suche a thynge as all the Byshoppes in the Realme yet neuer did, and that it was to restore again God his holy worde, whiche had been so longe hid from the people in a straunge tōgue, which they vnderstode not, the whiche woorde nowe commyng abroade, and continuing amongest vs, wyll bryng our Byshoppes and priestes in lesse estimation among the people. Lewys asked why so? he sayde: because their doctrine and lyuing was not accordyng to his worde.

Lewes. I neuer heard but that al men should learne of the Byshoppes and priestes, because they are learned men, and haue beene brought vp in the same al the days of their lyues. wherfore they must nedes knowe the truthe, and our fathers dyd beleue their doctrine and learnynge, and I thynke they dyd well. for the worlde was farre better than, then it is nowe I assure you.

VVilmut. I wyll not saye so. for we must not beleue them because they are byshoppes, nether because they ar learned, nether because our forfathers dyd follow their doctrine. for I haue red in Gods booke howe that Byshops and learned men haue taught the people false doctrine, and lykewyse the priestes from tyme to tyme, and in dede those people oure forefathers dyd beleue, and as they did thynke so did the people thynke. But for all this, Christ calleth them false Prophetes, theues, and murtherers, blynde leaders of the blynde, wyllyng the people to take hede of them, least they bothe should fall in to the dyche. Moreouer we rede that the Byshoppes, priestes, and learned mē haue beene alwayes resysters of the truthe, from tyme to tyme, and dyd alwayes persecute the Prophetes in the old lawe, as dyd their successors in likewyse to our Sauiour Christ and his disciples, in the newe lawe. We must take hede therfore, that we credyte them no further then God wyll haue vs, neyther to followe thē nor our forefathers, otherwise thē he doth commaunde vs. For almyghtie God hath geuen to all people, as well to Kynges, Prynces, Byshoppes, priestes, learned men, and vnlearned men, a commaundement and lawe, vnto the whiche he wylleth all men to bee obedient. Therfore if anye Byshoppe or priest, preache or teache, or Prynce or Magistrate commaūd any thinge contrary to this commaundement, we must take hede howe we obeye them. For it is better for vs to obey God then man.

Lewes. Mary syr, you are a holy Doctour in

dede. by Gods bloude yf you were my man, I woulde set you about your busynes a lytle better, and not to looke vpon bookes, and so wold your maister if he were wyse. And with that in came his maister and a yong man with him, whiche was seruaunt with maister Dawbnie in Watlyng streate. My maister asked what the matter was. Lewes sayde that he hadde a knauyshe boye here to his seruaunt, and howe that if he were his, he woulde rather hange hym then keepe hym in his house. Then my maister, beynge somewhat moued, asked my fellowes what the matter was. they sayde: we beganne to talke about Doctour Crome. then my maister asked hym what he had sayde, sweryng a great othe, that he woulde make hym to tell hym. he sayde that he trusted he had said nothyng, whereby eyther he or maister Lewes may iustly be offended. I praye you (quod Wilmut) aske hym what I sayde.

Lewes. Mary syr, this he sayde, that Doctour Crome dyd preache and teache nothyng but the truthe, and howe that if he recant on Sondaye next, he woulde bee sorye to heare it, and that if he doe, he is made to dooe it against his conscience: and more he sayeth, that we muste not followe oure Byshoppes doctryne and preachynge. for he sayeth, they bee hynderers of Gods woorde, and persecutors of that, and howe Cromwell dyd more good (that Traytoure) in settyng foorth the Byble, then all our Byshoppes hathe done these hundreth yeares. Thus gatheryng more of the matter. Then sayde Wylmut: in many thinges he made his tale. His maister hearynge of this, was in a great fury, and rated hym, saying: that eyther he would be hanged or burned, swearyng that he woulde take awaye all his bookes & burne them.

The younge man (maister Dawbnies seruaunt) standyng by, hearing this, beganne to speake on his parte vnto Lewes, and his talke confyrmed all the sayinges of the other to bee true. Whiche Lewes tolde his maister, wyth other talke also, for the space of halfe an houre. For this young man was learned. his name was Thomas Fayrefaxe. Thus Lewes hearyng his talke, as well as of the other, wente his waye in a rage vnto the Court, and was neuer seene in that house sence. But on the morowe they heard newes, for that the sayde Wylmut and Thomas Fayrefaxe were sent for, to come to my Lord Mayor. The messenger was maister Smert, the sworde bearer of Lōdon. They came before dynner to the Mayors house, and were therefore commaunded to syt downe at dynner in the Hall, and when the dynner was doone, they weare bothe called into a parler, where the Mayor, and syr Roger Cholmley was, who examined thē seuerally,
