‘My profession was that of Philomath, specialising in the predictive craft of horary, although I secretly practised the dexterity of the occult(the benign and learned form) as well as performing as medic and herbalist to many of the local comunitity. Horaries, Natal figures, seduction of reluctant lovers, the finding of lost things, and the location of errant husbands, were just some of my expertise an, as Physic and Astrologer, I as obliged to examine the urine of my clients for aliment, and so I was fit referred to as a piss prophet, to my chagrin.’…
‘..This morning I was woken by Roundheads breaking down the door of a neighbour’s house looking for a Catholic cook. The blue-gilled master and his mistress shivered in their nightshirts, bare feet in mud, whilst cropped-haired youths broke windows in a sullen violence. It were a pitiful sight, but none of the street including myself dared stand up against pike and zealot.’
