Tueſday, Septembris 25. Pragæ. Note : I went to Diner to the Spaniſh Embaſſadour : and carryed with me the Stone brought me by an Angel ; and the fourth Book, wherein the manner of the bringing of it is expreffed. And alſo I carried with me Librum Sextum Sanctum Myſticum. After Diner, when I had ſhewed him theſe things : his final anſwer was , that verily he took the doing to be by good Angel : marry, the matters to be too great : Therefore (ſaid I) they are for the ſervice of God, and not onely man. He ſaid he was a ſinner, and not wor- thy to be privy, much leſſe to be a doer in them : Notwithſtanding whatſoever he can do therein acceptable to God, he would be moſt obedient thereto. He deſired a Copy of the Emperour his foreſaid letters, that he might conſider circumſpectly of the Contents before he ſhould deliver them ; whereunto I conſented. Rendering his honour thanks I de- parted. After my return home, I found E. K. reſolved to go from hence to morrow, for his wife, and ſo ſtraightway into England : which was to me a grief : But what can I do, but refer all to the mercies of God, whom I have called upon for wiſdom to ſerve him withal ? I have put my truſt in the Lord, I have not murmured at any ſuch pangs and tentations hitherto. The mercies of the Higheſt be upon me, as I have put my truſt in him. Amen. Now were we ( all ) brought to great penury : not able without the Lord Laſkies, or ſome heavenly help, to ſuſtain our ſtate any longer. Beſides this, I underſtood of the Queens diſpleaſure for my departure , and of the Biſhop of London his intent to have begun to have accuſed me of Conjuration , and ſo to have had the ſecret aſſiſtance of you know whom. Tu es Deus fortitudo mea, refugium meum Suſceptor meus, & liberator meus. Amen.
