"The commissioners kept a fast this day in Whitehall. There preached before them Mr. Sprig, whose text was, "He that sheds blood, by man shall his blood be shed." Mr. Foxley's was, "Judge not, lest you be judged." And Mr. Peter's was, "I will bind their kings in chains, and their nobles in fetters of iron." The last sermon made amends for the two former.
