MarginaliaMarke the hope of the papistes.For though the Quene faile, she that you hope for, shal neuer come at it. For ther is my Lord Cardinals Grace, and manye more, betwene her and it. Then quoth I: my hope is in none but in God. Then saide Clunye: Come wyth me. And so went I to the Lollardes Tower. And on the nexte daye Darbishiere sent for me againe, and enquired of those Citizens that he enquired of me before. I aunswered, I knewe them not. Where were you quoth he, at the Communion the sonday fortenenight before? And I said, in no place. Then the Constable of S. Brides being there, made sute to him for me. And Darbyshiere demaunded of him if he would be boūd for me. And he answered, yea. And so he was boūde for my appearaunce betwyxt that and Christmas. Then Darbishire said: ye be Constable, and shoulde geue her good counsell,. So doo I, quoth hee. For I byd her go to Masse, and to say as you say. For by the Masse, if you saye the Crowe is white, I wyll say so to.

And thus much concerning the examination of William Liuing, and his wife, whom

although thou seest here delyuered throug the request of women, his suerties, yet it was no doubt, the deadely sicknes of Quene Marye abated and bridled then the crueltye of those Papistes, whyche otherwyse woulde neuer haue let them goe.

A note or scholie vpon the Certificat aboue mencioned.

NOte, good Reader, in this Certificate aboue wrytten, the crafty and cruell hipocrisy, and hipocritical crueltye of these dissembling prelats. First, by their sentence they cōdemne the poore Innocentes, and geue them to the secular power. Then by their Canon they them selues prescribe the secular power

And yet here in this Certificate before the kyng and quene, they put on a visour of clemency, making as they from the inward bowels of their hart woulde make intercession for their liues, when they meane no thing els in dede but their death.
