For the Right Honorable, The
Councel of State.

From the Lady Eleanor, 1649-10Octo. 1649.

As known to all, the true way or
touch-stone, other none to try
them by, but that Salt the life of all
things, All things whereby were instituted,
without which (his word the
Way and the Truth
); where Legions
of division the like unknown, a like
possible to expect “peace one with another,”
as to thrid Needles with a Cable,
or in a day build Pauls.

And so behold, all like as when
stung by fiery Serpents, were healed by
another in that likenes
; also of those
Legions entred into that wilde man,
as ensues, a taste or tryal of them tendreddred A2r 3
to these restless days, wherein
“every man in his proper language”, hears
the wonderful word of God
, as in a chrystal
mirror presenting the visage of
the present, extracted from that distracted
Mans recovery, sent hither
to Preach (askt “What his name
was?”
) declaring What God had done
for him
(no infant or babe) directed
to the Gentiles, a light for the last
days, as though askt Great Britain,
and Germany, their Names should
answer Gergesens, they both a compound
of it; from Gadarens as also
derived Gallia or France (lying over
against England) as that Region over
against Galilee; so “Whether thence
comes any good thing”
, like that saying
of old: Also former Marriages (what
successes have had) who wots not, A2 shall A2v 4
shall come to the matter (INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Mat. 8.c.)
of our Saviors pilgrimages or weary
progresses.

“And when he was come to the other
side of the Countrey of the Gergesens,
there met him two possest with Devils,
which came out of the Graves, very
fierce, so that no man might pass by that
way. And the devils besought him”
, &c.
“and he said, ‘Go’”; whereof in a paraphrasing
way thus proceeding, verily
their pass for Gravesend those twain
Rup. and Maurice, returned to Grave
Maurice
, Cousen Germain with
the Boors, issue of the late Palsgrave
of the Rhyne, that German Prince
turned out of his Countrey, making
in the Low Countries his abode, whose
Offspring those furies or fiends broken
loose here, sent home again: To this A3r 5
this day which Family are constanly
visited with a Spirit before the
death of them, a thing known to all;
and thus as though a Babe new born
should speak the hardest Names.

it, of the aforesaid unclean spirits baptized
in the lake, &c. certainly emblem
of the Gentiles being return’d to wallow
in the mire, as waters of troublesom
times giving warning; where
thus, “And when he was come out of the
ship, there met him incontinently out of
the Graves a Man that had an unclean
spirit, who had his abiding amongst
the Graves, bound with fetters and
chains”
&c. “neither could by any man
be tamed”
, his Ghost (as it were) that
Bear Canterbury, brought so often to
the stake or Bar on his knees; where beside A3v 6
beside his Habitation, where those
Monuments in Cathedrals, whose
House at Lambeth with its scituation
not onely pointed to, but of its denomination
borrow’d from the house
of Bethlam, otherwise called Bedlam:
As his Name withal whence
derived from the Grave-maker or
Sextons Office, their digging or opening
vaults, not unlike to be one of
his Godfathers, so much of his raving
fit, that bad our Savior avoid: foreshewing
had those times been in his,
had given him that oath of forswearing
himself, or his own accuser to be,
as forced no few in that undue kinde,
his own Obligation so well observing,
questioned not his spirit of continency,
any more then whether the
name Puritans a persecutor of, or given A4r 7
given Judas pass, gone to his own
place, Canterbury the last of his name
on a Friday executed, the day on
which our Lord was buried for his
long service, that in a field Gules

a chain left to hang their Keys
in. And so much for him and them
both answering, “For we are many fryers,”
whose twelve Godfathers withal
besought, (as it were) “Him not to torment
he adjures them”
; which concerns
more then any Lord Majors Oath,
or his Show on the water.

So each in his order, where follows
Great Britains last King, or
Englands late Tyrant, into whom many
Devils were entred from several
parts; but one above the rest (no
short time) vext with most, whereof Luke A4v 8

to land, there met him a certain Man
out of the City, which had a Devil a
long time, and he ware no clothes, neither
abode in house, but in the Graves”
,
“and he commanded the foul spirit to come
out of the man, for oft times it caught
him”
