The Good Old Days…

A friend shared this gem with me-

… from Samuel Hammond, God’s Judgment upon Drunkards, Swearers, and Sabbath Breakers (1659): “A Butcher in Haslingfield, scoffing at the Preacher for his reproving of this sin, was in the instant of his railing,choaked by somewhat that stuck in his throat, which could by no means be got up or down; but strangled him. Oh the Divine Justice! how Righteous and Just is the Lord in all his wayes! how are his judgements past finding out!”

Oh boy!
