Title: A second edition of the nevv almanack for the year 1656. Or, the nocturnall revised:: being annotations upon the late Mercurius Aëro-machus.

The truth whereof, if any man doubteth, it is but airing his horse in a morning or so, as far as Selby in Yorkshire, which is scarce an 150 miles off, where the print of the horses feet are still to be seen in the skie. Together with an huge compasse-window rainbow, seen that night at Jack-daw-ood, in the same countie; where the eccho of the drums and trumpets remian visibly to be heard to this day.

THE LETTER.
THE POSTSCRIPT.
A List of some Officers names, of the North-east Army, who were taken Prisoners by the enemy, for though the relator saith they had no Officers at all: Yet we are to take no great heed to that: Nor doe I charge a direct falsity herein, upon our Author, for wee cannot reasonably imagine how he should well discerne them from common Souldiers: or indeed from any thing else, at so great a distance; And that there were some taken Captives; Himselfe expressely declareth.
