The Thomas Watson Reading Room

From The Christian Soldier, or Heaven Taken by Storm

While this electronic version comes from an out of print edition, Northampton Press has just published Heaven Taken by Storm I highly recomment Northampton's version as the language and sentence structure have been modernized without losing Watson's style.
