Boner. Say ye nothing thereto? I wyll make you tell me whether it be laudable, and to bee frequented and vsed in the church or not.

Baget I besech your Lordship to pardon me: he is olde inough, let him answer for himself.

Boner. A sir knaue, are ye at that point with me? go cal me the porter, (said he to one of hys men:) thou shalt sit in the stockes, and haue nothing but bread and water. I perceiue I haue kepte you to well: haue I made thus muche of you, and haue I you at this point? Then came the Bishops man, and saide: the porter is gone to London. Then saide the Bishop to Baget: come with me, and he went away with hym, and commaunded me away, and badde one of his gentlemen to talke with me (who was one of his own teachyng,) who desyred (amongest all other thynges) to know of me, with whom I was acquaynted in Essex, and what menne they were, that were my teachers.

Haukes. When I see your commission, I wil make you aunswere. 

Commentary  *  Close

Technically Bonner needed a royal commission to interrogate Haukes.

And then immediatelye came the Bishoope agayne: but ere he came, his man and I had muche talke. Then the Bishop sat downe vnder a vine in his Orcheard, and called Baget to him, whom he caryed awaye, and broughte againe, and called me also, and sayde to Baget: Howe say ye now sir vnto baptisme? say whether it be to be frequented, and vsed in the churche, as it is now or no?

[Back to Top]

Baget. Forsooth my Lord I say it is good.

Boner. I be foole your heart. coulde ye not haue sayde so before? ye haue wounded thys mannes conscience. Then the Byshoppe tourned to me, and sayde: howe saye ye nowe syr? this man is turned and conuerted.

Haukes. I buylde neyther my faythe vppon thys manne, neyther vppon you, but onely vppon Christe Iesus, who (as Paule sayeth) is the founder and authour of al mennes fayth.

Boner. I perceiue ye are a stubborne felowe. I muste be glad to woorke another way with you, to winne you.

Haukes. Whatsoeuer ye dooe, I am ready to suffer it. for I am in youre handes to abide it.

Boner. Well, ye are so: come on your waies ye shall goe in, and I wyll vse you Christianlyke. you shall haue meate and drynke, such as I haue in my house: but in any wise talke not.

Haukes. I purpose to talke nothyng but the worde of god, and truth.

Boner. I will haue no heresy talked on in my house.

Haukes. Why? is the truthe become Heresye? GOD hathe commaunded that wee shoulde haue none other talke in oure houses, in oure beddes, at our meat, and by the waye but all truthe.

Boner. If ye will haue my fauor, be ruled by my counsell.

Haukes. Then I truste you wyll graunt me my request.

Boner. What is that?

Haukes. That youre Doctours and seruauntes geue me none occasion: for and they dooe, I wyll surelye vtter my Conscyence. Then commaunded he his menne to take in Baget, and lette not Haukes and hym talke together. And so thus wee departed, and wente to Dynner, and I dyd dine at the Stewardes Table. And after Dinner, his chaplaynes and his menne beganne to talke wyth me. But amongeste all other, one that is Pryncipal of Brodegates in Oxforde, he is the Byshoppes kinseman. This same manne sayde to me, that I was to curious. For ye will haue (said he) nothing but your litle preaty gods booke.

[Back to Top]

Haukes. And is it not sufficiente for my saluation? Yes. saide he, it is sufficient for oure saluation, but not for oure instruction.

Haukes. God sende me the saluation, and you the instruction. And as we thus reasoned, came the Byshoppe, who sayd vnto me: I gaue you a commaundemente that you shoulde not talke.

Haukes. And I desired you, that youre Doctours and seruauntes should geue me none occasion. Then wente we into his Orcharde a gayne, he, and his Doctours, and I.

Boner. Would not ye be contented to haue, that your childe should bee christened after the boke that was set out by king Edward? 

Commentary  *  Close

I.e., the Book of Common Prayer.

Haukes. Yes, with a good wil: it is the thing that I desire.

Boner. I thought so, ye would haue the same thing: the principle is in the name of the father the sonne, and of the holy ghoste, and in necessity it may serue.

Haukes. Christ did vse it without any necessitye, and yet we lacke the chiefest point.

Boner. What is that?

Haukes. Goe teache all nations baptisynge them &c.

Boner. Thou speakest that because I am no preacher.

Haukes. I speake the texte. I doe not meane you. Then spake al his Doctours, and his men that were with him: he speaketh it of you my Lord (with a great noyse that they made.)

Boner. Wyll ye be content to tary here, and youre childe shall bee baptised, and you shall not knowe of it, so that ye will agree to it?

Haukes. And if I would so haue done, I nede not to haue come to you: for I hadde the same counsell geuen me before.

Boner. Ye seme to bee a lustye yong manne you will not geue your head for the washing. Ye will stande in the defense of it for the ho-
