Vision Of Cromwell





A vision that I had presently after the king's death--I thought that I

was in a great hall, like the king's hall, or the castle in Winchester,

and there was none there but a judge that sat upon the bench and myself;

and as I turned to a window in the north-westward, and looking into the

palm of my hand, there appeared to me a face, head and shoulders like

the Lord Fairfax's, and presently it vanished. Again, there arose the

Lord Cromwell, and he vanished likewise; then arose a young face and he

had a crown upon his head, and he vanished also; and another young face

arose with a crown upon his head, and he vanished also; and another

young face arose with a crown upon his head, and vanished in like

manner; and as I turned the palm of my hand back again to me and looked,

there did appear no more in it. Then I turned to the judge and said to

him, there arose in my hand seven, and five of them had crowns; but when

I turned my hand, the blood turned to its veins, and these appeared no

more: so I awoke. The interpretation of this vision is, that after the

Lord Cromwell, there shall be kings again in England, which thing is

signified unto us by those that arose after him, who were all crowned,

but the generations to come may look for a change of the blood, and of

the name in the royal seat, after five kings once passed, 2 Kings x. 30.

(The words referred to in this text are these:) "And the Lord said unto

Jehu, because thou hast done well, etc., thy children of the fourth

generation shall sit upon the throne of Israel."
