Cornish Supplication to Parliament
For as much as (right honourable assembly) by the Queen’s Majesty’s appointment you are gathered together to look to the wants, to behold the miseries, the ruins, decays, and desolations of the church of God and commonwealth of this realm of England, and to put your helping hand to the amendment of the same, your wonted clemency and duty to hear the complaints of the poor, and our miserable estate, do stir, provoke and compel us to bring our lamentable complaint to your ears, to lay our miserable estate before your eyes, and with all humble reverence to put this our sorrowful suit and petition into your hands, with hope that God will so bless and sanctify you to be means of comfort and relief to us.
