our holy Mother the Church ; for his Apoftolical Gravity in
all Minifterial Offices ; for his fingular Prudence and Hu-
manity ; and, above all, for his unshaken Stedfaftnefs of
Refolution, that knew not how to yield or give Way either
to the Threatnings or Flatteries of the People ; and what
ever elfe was required as great and venerable in the moft

ferts, the 4th of Augufl, 1667. But God would not suffer
so great Virtue to lie conccal'd : Tho' he dy'd obfeurely,
he was bury'd honourably ; the Colonel of the Militia, and

ble Example of Valour and Loyalty. At last, having lain
buried unobserved more than forty Years, his Nephew
THOMAS Baker, Batchclor in Divinity, of St. John's Col-
lege, in Cambridge, the Heir, not more of his Virtues, as of
his adverfe Fortunes, pitying the unhappy Fate of his dear
Grandfather, out of his great Affection, caufed this Funeral

youngeft Son had not been many Days in this Life, before
