Welsh puritan (1618-51), executed for plotting against the Commonwealth. The passage in cipher is presumably Love's prophecy that the world would be destroyed in 1805, followed by an age of everlasting peace when God would be known by all. Two pages, on the two leaves of a quarto bifoliate. On Durham & Co. laid paper. Grubby, stained, creased and discoloured, but entirely legible. Prophecy in cypher on thirty-one lines. Occasional names (Oliver Cromwell, Seth Adams, Sodom & Gomorah) in normal script, as well as a number of dates from 1651 to 1800.
