Let us consider this from the end of his life: I am astonished at your behaviour.

You forbid me to speak in my defence and then slander both my cause and me to the people with your lies. You are not fair to me when you pretend that I have anything against the King. I have neither said nor done any such thing. I only maintained that the Pope had spiritual jurisdiction in the Kings realms and in the whole world over Christians and that he can excommunicate a heretic king.

If I have said anything else let it be shown to the people for I have written and signed all my statements and am ready to die for them. But you reported falsely of me to the King and now you would persuade the people similarly. Another Scotsman and I [he said he meant Father Crichton] did more for his Majesty abroad than you and all the ministers of Scotland can do and I am ready to give my life for him. But now I am sent to my death for religion alone.

One of them asked him if he were not afraid to die. In so good a cause, he replied, I am not more afraid to die than you are of the dishes when you go to supper. After this he was hanged for the Catholic Faith
