The Works of John Knox, Vol. 5 free pdf Excerpt from The Works of John Knox, Vol. 5 The author having sent a copy of his "First Blast of the Trumpet against the monstrous Regimen of Women," to John Foxe the martyrologist, then residing at Basel, received a letter in reply, which we regret has not been preserved. But from Knox's answer, here printed, it appears that he had expostulated with him in a friendly manner, both as to the impropriety of the publication, and the severity of its language. Knox, it will be seen, admits his "rude vehemencie and inconsidered affirmations," yet without retracting the principal proposition which he had maintained. The original letter is preserved among Foxe's papers in the British Museum, and an accurate facsimile of it is annexed. It is, with the exception of the signature, as the letter itself intimates, in the handwriting of Mrs Knox. It will afterwards appear, from his letters in 1559, that his anticipations of the unwelcome reception of the First Blast in England were fully realised. Dr Lesley, Bishop of Ross, in his Diary while a prisoner in England in 1571, writes, on the 21st of August, "Conference with the Bishop of Ely, anent the government of Commone weillis: He dispyittis John Knox and Goodman, with the band, for the wreittin aganes the Regiment of Wemen, and otheris their singular opinions, and holdis them Puritans." The Bishop of Ely at this period was Dr Cox, who took such a conspicuous part in the disputes at Frankfurt, in 1554. On the other hand, Calderwood, in mentioning Knox's First Blast, says, "The raigne of Queen Marie in England, and the regiment of Marie of Lorane in Scotland, two wicked women, provoked him to set furth this treatise.
