written by Edward Sexby under the pseudonym William Allen and often attributed to Colonel Titus. At one time a parliamentarian and involved in the capture of Charles in 1647 he later became disaffected with Cromwell and wrote the pamphlet Killing No Murder in 1657, arguing that the murder of a tyrant was no murder. He was captured in 1657 on a return visit to England to instigate a rebellion, was interrogated by Cromwell and imprisoned in the tower of London where he died the next year, 1658.
