Late that night, John Lane rode to Moseley and waited near a stile. Whitgreave met him there and then brought him to the corner of the orchard and went inside to get the king. Charles took leave of old Mrs. Whitgreave, Thomas’s mother, who gave him some almonds and raisins to take with him. He had already been given a catechism which he had admired as being a very pretty book. The night was cold, and Huddleston begged the king to take his cloak, which the king accepted, promising to send it back. Then John Lane, Lord Wilmot, Wilmot’s serving man Robert Swan, and the king set forth for Bentley, about eight miles away, arriving around midnight.
