CRUMWELL. Dated from the St Auoustin's, May I, 1527. State Papers,
Cromwell Correspondence, Vol. vn. No. 62. Most singular good
master, with due humility I beseech unto your mastership all godly
comfort, grace, and prosperous health. Forsomuch as your goodness
is so great towards me, your poor child, only through the
plenteousness of your favour and benevolence, I am the bolder of
your goodness in this my rude style. If it like your favour to
revocate to your memory the godly communication, which your
mastership had with me your orator in master Moore's house upon
Easter Eve, amongst many and divers fruitful exhortations,
specially of your singular favour and by your most comfortable
words, I perceive your gracious mind toward me. Wherefore, most
honourable master, for the tender love of God, and for the fervent
zeal that you have to virtue and godly study, cordis genibus
prvvolutiis, I humbly desire and beseech your goodness of your
gracious help. Now I begin to taste of holy scriptures: now, honour
be to God I am set to the most sweet smell of holy letters, with
the godly savour of holy and ancient doctors, unto whose knowledge
I cannot attain without diversity of books, as is not unknown to
your most excellent wisdom. Nothing in the world I desire but
books, as concerning my learning: they once had, I do not doubt but
Almighty God shall perform that in me, which he of his most
plentiful favour and grace hath begun. Moreover as touching my
behaviour, (your mastership's mind once known, ) with all lowliness
I offer myself not only to be ordered in all things as shall please
your wisdom, but also as concerning the education and instruction
of other alonely to ensue your prudent counsel. Nam quicquid est in
