Prinn, affirmed in the 17th. page of his pamphlet, called A fresh discovery of prodigious new wandring blazing stars and fire brands, ineight lines of which there is above a dozen of uutruths [sic], cleerly laid open. Next, by a just moderate reply, to his other pamphlet, called The lyar confounded, in which the case of Leiu. [sic] Coll.

Unto which ... is annexed a coppy of a letter written by L.C. L. to one of his special friends when he was in his cruell close imprisonment, ... published now for the incouragement of the saints, cheerfully to suffer afflictions and sorrowes for the sake and cause of their lord and master
