VENNER RANTS AGAINST LACK OF OPOSITION TO THE RESTORATION OF TE MONARCHY N IN 1661

And now to suffer all these things, and lose our Birth-rights, and to entail
Persecution, Slavery, Popery, and Idolatry, to our Posterities for ever … is
grievous; but to suffer them from the Cavaliers, an old, beaten Enemy, and that
without striking a blow, or bleeding in the Field for that which is much better then
our Lives (for as a Romane could say, There is no necessity that I should live, but
there is a necessity that Rome should be relieved) is the Aggravation. For how
did this old Enemy come in? did he beat us in the Field? did he win it with his
sword? is our Cause lost? or is our God dead? no! how then? Why, by lies … by
hellish plots and contrivement
