[To Sir Ed. B. Knight, 25 July 1635]

I receiv'd yours this Maunday-Thursday: and whereas amongst other passages, and high endearments of love, you desire to know what method I observe in the exercise of my devotions, I thank you for your request, which I have reason to believe doth proceed from an extraordinary respect unto me; and I will deal with you herein, as one should do with his Confessor.

[…]

 For the reading and singing Psalms, whereas most of them are either Petitions or Eucharistical ejaculations, I listen to them more attentively, and make them my own: When I stand at the Creed, I think upon the custom they have in Poland, and else-where, for Gentlemen to draw their Swords ail the while, intimating thereby, that they will defend it with their lives and blood: And for the Decalogue, whereas others use to rise, and sit, I ever kneel at it in the humblest and trembling'st posture of all, to crave remission for the breaches pass'd of any of Gods holy Commandments, (especially the week before) and future grace to observe them.
