Excerpt from The Whole Works Of Roger Ascham, Vol. 1: Now First Collected And Revised, With a Life Of The Author But what shall I say of those men whom I have alluded to? Only this, that Herod was moved, and all Jerusalem with him. They say that we are hasty certainly no one is so hasty that he cannot be recalled; so that all Cambridge needs the spur rather than the rein. But, as I was telling you, though our disputation was forbidden, yet our inclinations in that same cause were somehow stronger than before. For we have written a whole book on the Mass, which we propose to to present in a short time to the Lord Protector, unless it seem best to you and Master Cheke not to do so. As regards the management of this business, I would wish you should keep your opinion about it, not for conver sation with others, but for judgment of it hereafter: and we do not say this, because we dare not promise anything on our own part, but because we fear that certain men are too eager to hinder what they do not like by any means in their power.
