Jan: 10. 1644: The Archbishop that grand enemy of the power of godliness. that great stickler for all outward pomp in the service of god lost his head at Tower Hill London, by ordinance of Parliament. This week the great snow melted gently, never were houses in many years so filled with snow and puddled when it melted away. heard of the welfare of my friends from Hadham by my cousin Edward Miles .
