He tells about the shiploads of emigrants (pp. 165, 166), and says that they were so sympathised with, that it was difficult to enlist soldiers to fight against them; that the Regent had sent 10,000 ducats to help the Bishop of Muenster to crush them (p. 167); and a wild report was current that Henry VIII. had sent money to the Anabaptists of Muenster in revenge for the Pope's refusing his divorce (p. 185).]
