Abstract

Two letters dated March 31, 1663 (March 21, 1663 Old Style) and April 1, 1663 (March 22, 1663 Old Style) from James Harrison and Edward Bourne to a fellow Friend, written from Worcester Jail. They wish to dispel the many false accusations laid upon them, namely their dishonoring of the Lord. There is also a mention of something Harrison said concerning the Church of England. Harrison and Bourne, along with John Cartwright, were arrested while at Bourne's house. They maintain they were charged wrongfully, and wish not to be defamed for words they did not say.
