The Burning of Mr. John Rogers

Mr. John Rogers, minister of the gospel in London, was the first martyr in Queen Mary's reign; and was burnt at Smithfield, February the fourteenth, 1554. His wife, with small nine children, and one at her breast, followed him to the stake: with which sorrowful sight he was not in the least daunted, but, with wonderful patience, died courageously for the gospel of JESUS CHRIST.
