A man named Thomas Walsingham writes to Queen Elizabeth that the atheist man named Christopher Marlowe has been pronounced dead. Walsingham lists the name of four men who are claimed witnesses to Marlowe's death, Nicholas Kyrse, Ingram Frizer, Ephraim Cudworth, and Robert Poley. He then proceeds to list the six pieces of evidence of Marlowe's atheism. Walsingham goes into further detail on a report from Skeres and Poley of the three days leading up to Marlowe's death. The incident seems to have occurred at a tavern and Marlowe died of allegedly accidental knife wounds following a drunken quarrel. Walsingham also lists the names of documents found in the rooms of Marlowe after his death. The last document, however, is one that Thomas would like to keep as he had written it himself about Christopher and his lover Mary. Next, the man relays the journal of Christopher Marlowe, that describes Marlowe’s speculations of having offended Thomas with “some silly joke of Moses and Aaaron.” Marlowe goes on to describe how there is something about Thomas that his unsettling to him that he finds “almost ruthless.” He also notes how there is a strange man following him in the morning, and sees the man later again that evening before he departs for Deptford. After relaying these journal entries, Walsingham continues to inform that Marlowe had reached Deptford at half past nine, entered the tavern, and sat next to Cudworth. Ingram Frizer was also present. Getting influenced by the mugs of ale, Marlowe blurted out his ideas about divinity and how God is an “imagining for love.” Frizer becomes furious and lurches at Marlowe with his knife, stabbing twice, and stumbling away to see Marlowe’s own sword pierced through his stomach.
