NO OTHER COPIES FOR SALE. The Royalist exile James Heath wrote that Twas at the time of his Adolescency that he dreamed that he should be king of England.
One of the earliest Cromwell biographies. Heath claimed that Cromwell had been elected with the support of a group of minor members of the corporation. Account probably records genuine details about the election and the men it identified as Cromwell's key supporters can be shown to have opposed the religious policies of the local bishop, Matthew Wren of Ely. Cromwell was probably elected as a critic of Wren.
