Henry VIII

Memes Memes Memes...... I love to be tagged for memes. I've been tagged for two of them currently. Here is the first one:

Literary Meme - tagged by Emma and Johanna at A Banner of Crimson
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the next three sentences
5. Tag five people.

The nearest book was The Children of Henry VIII by Alison Weir. I've been interested in Henry VIII since visiting the Tower of London on my honeymoon in England. She also wrote The Six Wives of Henry VIII.

p. 123

#5It had not been forgotten how Dr. Mallet had celebrated mass in Mary's absence. Shortly afterwards a Master Benett of Ware told the Council that he had heard of a Catholic conspiracy headed by the Earl of Shrewsbury; he believed that the Lady Mary would join it.

#6Mary, of course, was not involved, but the councillors were fearful that her house might become a focus for disaffected Catholic nobles.
#7It was mainly for this reason that they did not want outsiders to be admitted to mass.
#8Late in April 1551, Dr. Mallet was arrested and sent to the Tower.

{Yikes, that was a dramatic ending to my four sentences -you don't want to be sent to the Tower!!!!}

I don't like the tagging part so much, but this one is pretty simple, so I tag:
Joan at The Paper Handmaiden
Sarah at In a Nutshell, Anachronism
Rachel at The Amber Gatherer (who tagged me for the next one I'll post!)
Hillary at The Gleam of Rose Tea

Play if you want to!
