7 May 1535- Sir Thomas More meets with Cromwell and four others in a room at the Tower.  He was told that Henry VIII demanded his opinion on the recently enacted Act of Supremacy.  More said that he refused to "meddle" in such affairs.  Although told that the king would be merciful if he consented to the Act, More says that his whole concern now is for his living the best possible Christian life.
