Excerpt from The History of the Worthies of England, Vol. 1 of 3
In 1640, he published his History of the Holy War; which was printed at Cambridge in folio.
April 13, 1640, a Parliament was called; and then also a Con vocation began at Westminster, in Henry the Seventh's chapel, of which our author was a member. He continued at the Savoy, to the great satisfaction of his people, and the neighbouring nobility and gentry, labouring all the while in private and in public to serve the king. To this end, on the anniversary of his inauguration, March 27, 1642, he preached at Westminster Ah bey, on this text, 2 Sam. Xix. 30, Yea, let him take all, so that my lord the king return in peace which sermon being printed, gave great offence to those who were engaged in the opposition, and brought the preacher into no small danger. He soon found that he must expect to be silenced and ejected, as others had been; yet desisted not till he either was, or thought himself, unsettled. This appears from what he says in the pre face to his Holy State, which was printed in folio that same year at Cambridge.
