THOMAS POUNDE, OF BELMONT, S.J. Part XII.
We now proceed to the second part of this narrative, viz., Thomas Pounde's connection with Father Campion and Father Parsons in their evangelical labours, and with those times, his letters, &c In doing so it will be necessary at some little length to go into the history of that exciting period.
Father Campion and Father Parsons arrived in England, and in London, on different days in the month of June, 1580. On arriving in London, Father Parsons went to the Marshalsea Prison, where he found our confessor, who received him with open arms, and introduced him to Mr. George Gilbert, a quondam convert of that Father, who bountifully provided for all his wants and comforts, as he did also for Father Campion on his arrival. 2
