Whose special praise it isPosted: December 31, 2018
In this church in Staunton Harold, England, there’s an inscription:
When all things sacred were throughout ye nation Either demollisht or profaned
Sir Robert Shirley Barronet founded this Church whose singular praise it is to have done ye best things in ye worst times And hoped them in the most callamitous.
This is Sir Robert the 4th Baronet, who died a prisoner in the Tower of London.
shoutout to FWJ who told me that one.
