About this work
This has sometimes been thought to be the pamphlet of which 100 copies were found at Henry Walker's house by officials working on behalf of the House of Lords in February/March 1641. See House of Lords Record Office, HL/PO/JO/10/1/53. See also Lords Journal, 4 March 1641: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=35537#s5
However, the title page refers to May 1641 and so, unless it was a reworked version of an earlier pamphlet, it may not be the same work as that for which Walker was apprehended.
The woodcut initial 'O' on the second page is the same as used in a pamphlet printed by Thomas Harper, A True Relation of a Scotchman (1641). The officials who arrested Walker stated that the work they found in his house was printed by another printer, Thomas Fawcett. This also suggests that this is not the same work as that sold/written by Walker.
