Pp. 4. Endd.: Personages to attend upon the Queen's grace.
|*** It would seem that this list was drawn up at the same time as No. 580 (3 i., ii.) in
this volume (see pp. 233–5), as it is on similar paper and in the same handwriting. The
two documents, in fact, appear at one time to have been bound up together, and in the
seventeenth century they were transcribed as one document by some not very careful
antiquary who prefixed to his transcript the very erroneous title:—" A copy of orders
taken at the time when king Henry VIII. went to Boulogne, copied out of a book
remaining in the Treasury of the Exchequer at Westminster, anno 1612." See Harl.

|12. [The Northern Rebellion.]|
|An address (fn. 5) to the commons then in rebellion. Proves to them that
in rising against evil counsellors of the King, they rebel against the King
himself. If they had departed home according to the King's command, they
would have shown themselves true subjects; but, raised by some mischievous
mad brains whom God will doubtless shortly deliver into the King's hands, to
run and send about the realm to raise the people is rebellion. All Christendom
and Heathenesse will say, "Behold yonder most noble, most wealthy, and
most strong country of England will be destroyed," for Christ says, "that
every realm divided within itself shall be desolate." Cites the factions of
Marius and Silla and of the generals of the host of Alexander of Macedon
after his death by poison. God will take vengeance on them as He did upon
Dathan and Abiron unless they return to repentance and cry for mercy to
God and their prince.|
|Begins: "What natural Englishman is he that with himself inwardly
doth consider," &c. And after a page of preamble the address itself commences:—"Tell me, good people, tell me good countrymen, what fury of
Hell has put in your heads, what madness, &c." Contains many quotations
from Scripture, with marginal references to the same.|
|Pp. 10. Title prefixed on a separate leaf: "A letter sent to the
commons that rebell, wherein lovingly is showed to them how they every
way rise to their own extreme ruin and destruction."|
