DescriptionIn a different hand from the rest of the volume – neat and very clear. The majority of this text is written out in full sentences and would seem best classified as a sermon. f. 173r: ‘the Church of England hath instituted this day for a pious memoriall of the happy deliuerance of both Church & State from the treacherous & bloody [con]spiracyes of our Adversaryes of the Church of Rome whoethis day intended to massacre the King nobility & gentry by blowing up the Houses of Parliament’.
