A salt teare: or, The vveeping [weeping] onion, at the lamentable funerall of Dr. Dorislaus.
Royalist satire, revelling in the death of Isaac Dorislaus. Place of publication from Wing. Verse - "What though Lamented curs'd; & the High Tree". Isaac Dorislaus (1595-1649) was a Dutch Calvinist historian and lawyer and the University of Cambridge's first ever professor of History. He was murdered in the Hague while negotiating as a representative of the Commonwealth in the Dutch Republic in May 1649, by a group of English Royalists led by Walter Whitford (namesake and son of the former Bishop of Brechin) due to his role in the trial of King Charles I [as legal adviser to the High Court of Justice, he helped to draw up the charges against Charles I].
