 +Att length there happened to come to that Towne,​Colonell FitzJames,a kinsman of the said Mr Bisse,who by chance hearing of Mr Bisses imprisonment,​came to him and gott him to be released;​Which hardy imprisonment was an occasion that Mr Bisse  upon hid discharge and coming home fell into a greate and dangerous feaver,of which hee did not recover untill now and therefore could not before this time,​repaire unto the honorable Committee to make his Composition.All which is attested by
