Sir Thomas Morgan

Sir John Lenthall told me that at the taking of Dunkyrke, Marshall Turenne, and I think, Cardinal Mezarine too, had a great mind to see this famous warrior. They gave him a visit, and whereas they thought to have found an Achilean or gigantique person, they saw a little man, not many degrees about a dwarf, sitting in a hut of turves, with his fellow soldiers, smoking a pipe about 3 inches (or near so) long, and did cry out to the soldiers, when angry with them, Sirrah, I'll cleave your skull ! as if the words had been prolated by an Eunuch.

died in 1679.
