Whose new Interpretation,

such old peices having No affinity and

So what the Veritie of

Who so

this very time reserved, hitherto with the

“So goe thy way Daniel, for the words are

, which A3r 5
which: Not only the Time, but unfolds
unto what Nation or Language, revealed
those glad Tydings, as by the Word

given to understand thereby.
Even where the great Seale the Impression
thereof, those fouer Coates or Beasts, styled
“Kings which shall arise, &c.”
And the
Coine stampt therwith and the like, &c.

And so the first “in the likenesse of a Lyon

first displays the
armes of England and France, and then
standing upon the feet like a man”, a Lyon
rampant (to wit) Scotlands coate, where
the other the Irish Instrument, or
Harpe evident also out of Tune, &c.
That no need to say, “‘I am Joseph’”, or over-verball

No more requisit then their asking A3either A3v 6

such blood shed amongst brethren and

But such miserable Shipwracke

rather for the “ancient of

for my Commission thus.

And farther as to you not unknown
especially at what time your Mother

But “thou O Daniel shut up, &c.”

word a mistery, cannot passe over them,
as none of the least His being so often
saluted or stiled so highly of the Angel:
“‘O Daniel greatly beloved man’”, as much
to say, too, “O King of great
Britaine
!”
as Kings and Prophets; Brethren,
“Let him that reads Daniel understand.”

And as it extends to this time also,
beares 1644Date forty foure; directly the
present Yeare as these beareing Record
of time and place, &c. of whose storming
daies thus. “And Daniel spake and
said, I saw and behold upon the great Sea,
the foure Winds strove, and foure great
Beasts came up, divers one from another to B1r 9
(to say) from beyond sea’”
, the occasion
of such divission, ready to be swallow’d
up in these swelling Seas.

“The first like a Lyon, and Eagels
wings, INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Daniel 7. I beheld till the

of renown’d Memory,
England stil’d great

(And this Sayling on; or pursuing
the Subject:) “And behold another Beast, Ba B1v 10
a second like to a Beare, and it raised
it selfe upon one side: And had
three Ribbs in the mouth of it, between the
teeth of it.”
N’other then as it were displayed
The three Lyllies: The
Armes of France, to the full
given by this Kingdome,
where Nothing but a meere Shadow,
or the bare Coate of it Left, Leaves in
stead of Fruite:
Besides, how by a She-
Beare, as this N’other: Three devided
Kingdoms rent in peices.
The Ribbe or Side, beares Witnesse

And so farther from This saying, too

but of Divissions and Massacres, where
inclusive the ador’d Sacrament called
the Masse: Thus uttered Her
Voice, “‘Let it bee neither Thine, nor
Mine, but devide it’”
: destroy it utterly,
&c.
No such Coate then, like to have
any Affinitie with Solomons Ivory Rament
or Robe: as the Ensigne of Peace,
the “Lilly of the field”
, but rather a
Slippe come out of the Bear-garden,
unworthy to behold the Sunne: became

Summe of it; shewing Then revealed
the time of End, when united
These foure aforesaid, &c. As hereby
farther appeares.
(“And Dominion

) No small addition,
after Her dayes raigning forty foure
Yeares, for Scotland to give such a

And so farre for the Harpe, Like the

as strung in that manner ribbwayes,

Character of tirrants of no long continuance,
raising up and setting lower, like
the wrest according to their will made

Informing moreover concerning the
blaspheming blasts of the little Horne
, “that
had eies like a man, and such a mouth”
, as much B3v 14

great things, a Womans and no Mans.

and these apointed Scutchins for his E3r 37
his Hersse apeared, those winged Beasts
devouring times likenesse, &c.

As by this one wittnesse more produced
or set forth: asigned to the present,
even in the dayes of these Kings, or united
Kingdoms: “Shall the God of Heaven
set up a Kingdome which never be distroyed.
And the Kingdome shal not be
left to other, &c. And shall breake in
peices”
, even to the same effect, with
that INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Dan. the 7. “The greatnesse of the
Kingdome under the whole Heaven, for ever
given to the Saints (or Rulers, &c.)”

“which shall breake in peices, &c.” viz.
By those ordinance or orders of Parliaments,
and feild peices, &c.

And yet not so strange as true, notwithstanding
such a troublesome time O E3v 38
“O let Ismale live” as it were prefer’d before
Isaac to be his Heire, And Absolons
life before Solomon the wise (“O Absolon
my sonne Absolon”
) Like Egypts Leekes
& Garlike before Canaans Grapes, &c.
And so preferred this worlds vanity &
folly before everlasting Righteousnesse,
endlesse Joy, life eternall, and now
ended thus this point of Honour, displaying
the Ancient of dayes his Kingdome
your portion
to you dedicated: that
so punctually have discharged that duty
of the first commandement with
promise, in so much and such dishonour
endured, have bene your mothers
Copartner, even You, her alone
and sole support under the Almighty.
So “Veni Domine Jesu”, gracia Domine,
&c.
