The Five Years of King James: Or, The Condition of the State of England, 1643

Weston having received 24£ of his allowance, and yet nevertheless nothing accomplished, according to the Countess, her expectation is checked by Mistress Turner for delaying it; whereupon he gets into his hands certain poisons, viz. Rosacre, white arsenic, mercury sublimate, Cantharides, red Mercury, with three or four more several poisons, tempering them with his broth and his meat, according as he saw them affected, increasing and diminishing their strength as he was instructed by his ancient friend, Master Franklin. Besides these, Tarts and Jellies are sent by the Viscount and Countess to Sir Thomas Monson, as from thence by the hands of one Simon, master servant unto Sir Thomas, to be delivered to Weston, and so to Overbuy, every of which Tarts and Jellies were poisoned with a several poison. These courses caused Sir Thomas Monson to be suspected of this act, and to have a hand in it: First, in respect he preferred Weston to his service; Secondly, poisoned Tarts and Jellies went out of his house; And lastly, for that he did not discover these things, his men only having access to the Tower, and that to speak with Weston. Now his salt, his meat, his drink, and whatsoever he gets is mingled with poison, and for the increase of his torment, is increased or diminished, as the law Sir Thomas Overbuy affected. By this means he begins to grow extreme sickly, having been heretofore accustomed to very good health; insomuch that he can scarce stand or go, what with the pain of his body, and the heat; yet nevertheless being a strong man, he stood it out a long time, till at length he began to grow jealous of his man Weston, for his malady increased or diminished, as he affected, but yet some physics he desired, and at his special instance and request, and not without some gratitude as was thought, one Paule de la Bell, an Apothecary, by the advice of Doctor Marvin, brought a Bath to cool his body, with advice to be sparing of his dyer, for that he suspected that his heat was not wholesome. Surely this did him much good, and preserved his life longer than they expected, insomuch that they misdoubt some fallacy or fraud; and therefore send new letters to the Lieutenant to have a special care that none may be suffered to see him or speak with him; for evil men are full of needless fears, and now there is such special watch had over him, that none of his men might be permitted so much liberty as to speak with him out at a window;and the reason being asked, Answer was made, that the Lieutenant had commandment from the Council that it should be so. Thus the good gentleman passed away his tedious and sorrowful days with many discontents, being filled with pains and grief, without friends and comforters, ready to be vexed and tormented upon every occasion, and consuming and languishing away without any common society that was allowed to the meanest prisoner in the house. In this man may we see the misery of such as fall into the hands of Popish Catholics, for by Northampton’s means was this strictness showed towards him; here will we leave him languishing in sorrow, and lamenting his misfortune.
