deliuered trusting that he shuld escape all his enemies. They wuld haue had me to tary and haue supped ther with them: but I would not tary, for I sayd I had promised to go vnto Corpus Christi college to comfort our other bretherne their, who were no lesse sorowfull then they, and praied them to tel vnto our other bretherne there what was happened: for ther wer diuers elsse in that colledge. when I came to Corpus Christi colledge I founde to gether in Sir Diets chamber, tarienge and lokinge for me Fitziames, Diet, and Vdall, they knew al the matter before by maister Edon, whome I had sēt vnto Fitziames, but yet I declared the matter vnto them againe and so I taried ther and supped with them in that chamber where they had prouided meat and drinke for vs before my comminge, at whiche supper we wer not very mery, consideringe our state and peril at hand. when we had end our supper and cōmitted our whole cause with feruent sighs and harty prayers vnto God our heuenly father, Fitziames would nedes haue me to lye that night with him in my old lodginge at Alborne Hall, and so did I: But small reste and litle slepe toke we both their that night. In the sunday in the morninge I was vp and readye by fiue of the clocke, and assone as I could get out at Alborne Haull dore, I went straight towardes Glocester colledge to my chamber, it hadd reyned that mornyge, a good shuere and with mi goinge I had all to be sprinkeled my hose and my shoes with the reiny mire. And when I was comein vnto Glocester coledge, which was about vi. of the clocke, I found the gats fast shut, wherat I did much merueil, for they were wont to be opened daily, long befor that time, then did I walk vp and down by the wall ther, a whole howre before the gates wer opened. in the meane while my musing hed beinge full of forecastinge cares, and my sorowfull hart flowinge with dollefull sighes, I fully determined in my conscience before god, þt, if I shuld chaunce to be takē and be examined I would accuse no man, nor declare any thing further then I did already perceiue was manifestly knowen before. And so when the gate was opened, thinking to shift my selfe and to put on a longer goune, I wente in towardes my chamber, and ascendinge vp the steyers, would haue opened my dore, but I could not in a longe season do it, wherby I perceyued þt my lock had bin medled with all and therwith was somewhat altered. Yet at last with much a do I opened the locke and went in, when I came in, I did see my bedde al to tosied & tumbled, my clothes in my presse throwen dowen and my study dore open wherof I was much amased and thought uerely theire was made their some serch that night for maister Garet, and that it was knowen of hys beinge wytheme, by the monkes man that brought him to my chamber. Nowe was ther lieng in the next chamber vnto me, a yonge priest monk of shirborne abbey in the county of Dorset come thether to be student, where I was brought vppe from my childhode: for whose sake partlye I came in dede vnto that Colledge, to enstructe him in the Laten tongue, and in other thinges wherin I had better knowledge then he. thys monke assone as he harde me in the chamber, called vnto me, and asked me where I lay that night, I told him that I lay with my olde bed felow Fitziames at Alborn hall, he came to me straight way, and told how our master Garet was sought in my chāber, and asked me whether he was with me yesterday at after noone or no, and I told him yea. And finally he tolde me that he was commaunded to bringe me assone as I came in vnto the prior of studentes named Anthony Dunston a monke of Westminster, who nowe is bishop of Landafe. And so while he made him ready by me, he tolde me what a doo there was made by the commissarie and the two proctors in my chamber that night, with billes and swords thrusted thorow my bedstraw, and how euery corner of my chāber was searched for master Garret, and albeit his gown and hoode lying in my presse was by theym all to tossed and tombled wyth my clothes, yet did they not perceiue them there, for by like they toke it to haue bene mine own clothes. This so troubled me that I forgot to make cleane my hose and shoes, and to shyfte me into an other gowne: And therefore assone as he was readye, so all to be dirted as I was with the rainy weather, and in my short gown I went with him to the saide Priors chamber, where I founde the said prior standing and lokinge for my comminge. he asked me where I had bene that nighte, I tolde him I laye at Alborn hal wt my old bedfellow Fitziames, but he would not beleue me, he asked me if master Garet were with me yestereaye? I tolde hym yea: then he would knowe where he was, and wherfore he came vnto me. I told him I knew not where he was excepte he were at Woodstocke. for so (said I) he had shewed me that he woulde goo thether, because one of the kepers there his frend, hadde promised him a piece of venison to make mearye wyth all that Shrofe tide, and that he woulde haue borowed a hatte and a paire of high shoes of me, but I had none in dede to lend him, this tale I thought metest though it were nothing so. then hadde he spyed on my fore finger a bigge ringe of siluer verye well double gilted with two letters A. D. ingraued in it for my name, I supose he thought it to be gold, he required to see it, I toke it vnto him, when he had it in his hand, he sayde it was his ring, for therin was his name, an A. for Antonye, and a D. for Dunston.
