Losing and Taking again of the Town of Mansoul.

Advertisement by the Editor.......


Poetical Preface to the Reader by the Author ........... 251

This Work was originally published in the form of

a continuous narrative; but, to enable the reader
more readily to pause and reflect, the Editor has
ventured to adopt the plan, first introduced by Mr.

Burder, of dividing it into chapters.

Chap. I. The original beauty and splendour of Man-

soul under Shaddai; her noble castle ; five gates ;

perfection of the inhabitants, the origin of Diabolus;

his pride and fall; his revenge; council of war to

reduce the town; Diabolus approaches Eye-gate; his

oration; Captain Resistance slain; My Lord Inno-

cence killed ; the town taken......


CHAP. II. Diabolus occupies the castle; deposes the

Lord Mayor, Mr. Understanding, and a wall erected

to darken his house ; Mr. Conscience the Recorder

put out of office; very obnoxious to Diabolus and the

inhabitants ; Mr. Lord-will-be-will heartily espouses

the cause of Diabolus, and is made the principal

governor; the image of Shaddai defaced, and that of

Diabolus set up; Mr. Lustings made Lord Mayor :

Mr. Forget-good, Recorder ; new Aldermen appointed,

-Messrs. Incredulity, Hlaughty, Swearing, Whoring,

Hard-heart, Pityless, Fury, No-truth, Stand-to-lies,

False-peace, Drunkenness, Cheating, and Atheism ;

three strongholds built-Defiance, Midnight-hold,

and Sweet-sin-hold........


Cuap. III. The Revolution known to king Shaddai;

his resentment against Diabolus; his gracious inten-

tion of restoring Mansoul; intimations published, but

suppressed by Diabolus; his artifices to secure the

town and prevent its return to Shaddai......... 265

Chap. IV. Shaddai sends an army of 40,000 spiritual

energies to reduce Mansoul, under the command of

Captains Boanerges, Conviction, Judgment, and

Execution, who address the inhabitants powerfully,

but with little effect; Diabolus, Incredulity, Ill-

pause, and others, interfere to prevent submission ;

Prejudice defends Ear-gate, with a guard of sixty

deaf men..........


Chap. V. The Captains give battle to the town, which

resolutely resists; they retire to winter quarters ;

Tradition, Human Wisdom, and Man's Invention,

enlist under Boanerges ; they are taken prisoners,
and join Diabolus under Captain Anything; hostili-
ties are renewed, and the town much molested ; a
famine and mutiny in Mansoul ; a parley ; proposi-
tions made and rejected; Understanding and Con-

science quarrel with Incredulity; a skirmish... ... ... 276

CHAP. VI. Lord Understanding and Mr. Conscience

imprisoned; the besieging officers petition Shaddai

for a reinforcement; it is approved; Emmanuel, the

king's son, is appointed to conquer the town; marches

with a great army, and surrounds Mansoul, which is

strongly fortified against him........


Crip. VII. Emmanuel prepares for war against Man-

soul; Diabolus sends Loth-to-stoop with proposals

for peace, which are rejected; he proposes to patch

up a peace by outward reformation, offering to become
