further_o which_o of_o they_o will_v have_v dye_v afterward_o for_o a_o law_n which_o they_o know_v to_o be_v corrupt_v or_o counterfeit_a and_o sooth_o we_o see_v throughout_o their_o history_n that_o there_o pass_v not_o so_o much_o as_o any_o one_o half_a hundred_o year_n without_o persecution_n and_o war_n for_o that_o law_n and_o whereas_o it_o may_v be_v say_v that_o some_o
