Seite 400 - YOUR grace's displeasure and my imprisonment, are things so strange unto me, as what to write, or what to excuse, I am altogether ignorant. Whereas you send unto me (willing me to confess a truth, and so obtain your favour) by such an one, whom you know to be mine ancient professed enemy. I no sooner received this message by him, than I rightly conceived your mean ing ; and if, as you say, confessing a truth, indeed, may procure my safety, I shall with all willingness and duty perform your command.

Seite 149 - I nothing malign for that you have done to me, but the eternal God forgive you my death, as I do; I shall never sue to the king for life, howbeit he is a gracious prince, and more grace may come from him than I desire. I desire you, my lords, and all my fellows to pray for me.
Seite 250 - In winter nights, that are so cold, Plaining in vain unto the moon ; Thy wishes then dare not be told ; Care then who list, for I have done. And then may chance thee to repent The time that thou hast lost and spent To cause thy lovers...

If ever I have found favour in your sight — if ever the name of Anne Boleyn hath been pleasing in your ears — then let me obtain this request ; and I will so leave to trouble your grace any farther, with mine earnest prayers to the Trinity to have your grace in His good keeping, and to direct you in all your actions. " From my doleful prison in the Tower, this sixth of...
Seite 213 - ... me ; and when I think of the continuance of that, which I must of necessity suffer, it would seem intolerable to me, were it not for the firm hope I have of your unchangeable affection for me ; and now, to put you sometimes in mind of it, and seeing I cannot be present in person with you, I send you the nearest thing to that possible, that is, my picture set in bracelets, with the whole device, which you know already, wishing myself in their place, when it shall please you. This from the hand...

Seite 401 - Try me, good king, but let me have a lawful trial, and let not my sworn enemies sit as my accusers and judges ; yea, let me receive an open trial, for my truth shall fear no open shame ; then shall you see either mine innocency cleared, your suspicion and conscience satisfied, the ignominy and slander of the world stopped, or my guilt openly declared.
