Sivu 338 - The fact that the greater monasteries are not spared in these reports, makes it impossible to believe that they were submitted to the inspection of parliament. Even against the high authority of Mr. Gairdner it may be doubted, whether " the substance at least of what was contained in them was read aloud in justification of the intended measure "t of confiscation.
Sivu 199 - if it be your pleasure, as it is, that I shall play the fool after my customable manner when Forest shall suffer, I would wish that my stage stood near unto Forest, for I would endeavor myself so to content the people, that therewith I might also convert Forest, God so helping, or rather, altogether working.
Sivu 238 - My very good Lord, after my most hearty commendations, it shall please your Lordship to understand that the monks of the Charterhouse here at London, which were committed to Newgate for their traitorous behaviour long time continued against the King's Grace, be almost despatched by the hand of God...
Sivu 408 - ... cause such dreadful execution to be done upon a good number of the inhabitants of every town, village, and hamlet, that have offended in this rebellion, as well by the hanging...

The Greenwich Observants had, it seems, some connection with these two friars. The warden had specially requested to have the punishment of them if any were required ; and father Peto, who had spoken so boldly about the...
Sivu 164 - Threaten these things to rich and dainty folke, which are clothed in purple, fare deliciously, and have their chiefest hope in this world ; for we esteem them not, but are joyful that for the discharge of our duties we are driven hence : and, with thanks to God, we know the way to Heaven to be as ready by water as by land, and therefore we care not which way we go.
Sivu 301 - ... and great solemn monasteries of this realm wherein, thanks be to God, religion is right well kept and observed, be destitute of such full numbers of religious persons as they ought and may keep, hath thought good that a plain declaration should be made of the premises as well to the Lords spiritual and temporal as to other his loving subjects the Commons in this present Parliament assembled...
Sivu 108 - ... not used ; and it is commonly reported that the occasion thereof is, because the said lord cardinal hath taken such impositions of the rulers of the said houses, as well for his favour in making of abbots and priors, as for his visitation by his authority legatine ; and yet nevertheless takoth yearly of such religious houses such yearly and continual charges, as they be not able to keep hospitality as they were used to do ; which is a great cause that there be so many vagabonds, beggars, and...
