News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

A curiosity from 1641.

From A Discovery of Six Women-Preachers, in Middlesex, Kent, Cambridge, and Salisbury. Printed 1641.

Now give mee leave to take water, and goe to Gravesend, and so further into Kent, where I shall tell you of one Joan Bauford in the town of Feversham, who taught in Feversham, that husbands being as crossed their wives wills, might lawfully be forsaken.
Then was also one
Susan May of Ashford in the County of Kent also, which preached in a barne there, that the Divell was the father of the Pope the father of those which did weare Surplices; wherefore consequently the Divell was the father of all those which did not love Puritans.
