Humbly shewing unto them the manifold abuses of their apprentiship, how the Frenchmen, Dutch, and Walloones, doe deprive them of their ancient customes, and former liberties in their trade. Describing also the bloody proceedings of the papists in Ireland, and to vindicate their masters losses by the Protestants there persecuted. Likewise in devoting the prelates, and lordly bishops, which insult too much over the whole clergie, as the whole kingdome besides. As also speaking of the Jesuites, that were condemned. Subscribed, and presented with the names of above 30000. apprentices.
