Dee Belmagel his counterfeiting of our instruction received from God, and to Edward Kelly his hands as likely as could be.

 

Herein I have followed the Character exactly; by which it appears, that the Book of Enoch2. in Sir John Cotton's Library+, was written by Edward Kelly's hand. The Characters in that, being made after the fashion of these. 3

NOTE 5

 

After that these things were finished, Edward Kelly rose up from the Table, and went to the west windows to read a Letter which was even then brought him, from his wife: which being done, he took a little Prayer* Book (in english meter made by one William Hunnis which Mr. Adrian Gilbert6 had left7 here, and it lay on the Table by us all the while of this first action) and with this Book he went into his bed chamber intending to pray on it a certain Prayer which he liked; and as he opened the Book his eye espied Strange Writing in the spare white paper at the book's end. And beholding it, judged it verily to be his own Letters, and the thing of his own doing; but being assured that he never saw the like of this Character [for Conciliation] and that other, notified by the Heart or Center Skin and Flesh8 before this present hour, he became astonished, and in great wrath; and behold suddenly One appeared to him and said:
"Lo this is as good as the other;" meaning that which we had received, and is here before set down on the former page.9
With this news came Edward Kelly to me, and I was writing down fair this last Action, and said:
"I have strange matter to impart unto you."
Then said I; "What is that?", and at the first (being yet tossed in his mind, with this great injury of this subtle supplanter of man, ambitiously intruding himself to rob God of his glory) he said: "you shall know," and at length shewed me this little paper here by, being the one of the white leaves in the end of the foresaid little prayer book.
And I, viewing it, found it to be meant to be the Counterfeit of ours; but with all imperfect diverse ways, after the order of our method; yea though the words, out of which it had sprung, had been good and sufficient: and there at laughed at, and derided the Wicked enemy for his envy, his ass-headed foolish ambition, and indeed mere blindness to do anything well.
To Conclude, we found that with an incredible speed this Devilish figure was written down by some Wicked Spirit, to bring our perfect doings in doubt with us; to utter undue speeches of god's good Creatures, or to wavering minds of the worthiness and goodness of the same things received, and so either to leave off, or with faint hearted wavering to proceed.
But I by God's grace, (contrary to such inconveniency) was armed with constancy, and confident good hope, that God would not suffer me (putting my trust in his goodness and mercy, to receive wisdom from him) to be so Unjustly dealt withal, or Unkindly or Unfatherly used at his hands etc., and intended after supper to make my earnest complaint to the divine Majesty against this Wicked intrusion and temptation of Illuding Devil, and so we went to Supper.

* The title of the Book was: Seven Sobs of an sorrowful Soul for sin.
