themselves for the fight and combat, and that within the

space of a few hundred years they will strike down both Turk and Pope into the Bottomless Pit of Hell. XXIX. HOW AN ANGEL PRESERVED A CHILD.

In a place not far from Zwicka, in Franconia, (said Luther,) where I lay at that time, it happened that a child (which scarcely could go or speak) in winter time lost itself in a wood near unto Zwicka, and was constrained to remain in the wood three nights and two days ; in which time there fell a great snow,

insomuch that the child was covered therewith. But every day there came a man, and brought it something to eat, and to drink, and went away again. On the third day, the man came and brought meat, and led the child from the place where it lay, into the road-way, by which means it got home, and told the parents, plainly, what had happened. I heard the child relate it myself, as significantly and plainly, (which neither before, nor in three years' space after that time, spake any word that might well be understood,) as I myself could have related the same. This man (said Luther) that attended on the child, was an angel.
