Foxe's Book of Martyrs -- 458. A NOTE OF ELIZABETH PEPPER.

458. A NOTE OF ELIZABETH PEPPER.

            Elizabeth Pepper, before mentioned, when she was burnt at Stratford, was eleven weeks gone with child, as she then testified to one Bosom's wife, who then unloosed her neckerchief: and moreover, when she was asked why she did not tell them, answered, "Why," quoth she, "they knew it well enough." Oh, such are the bloody hearts of this cruel generation, that no occasion can stay them from their mischievous murdering of the saints of the Lord, that truly profess Christ crucified only and alone, for the satisfaction of their sins.
