Thomas was sitting at his table for a dinner with Fisher and other clergymen who took part at Council. It was the right occasion for talking freely, without risk of being heard by one of King's men, especially Cromwell. While servants were serving the soup, he looked at Fisher and smiled
I would like to thank Your Eminence for your speech at Council. It has been clear and brave...

Fisher folded his hands and started the prayer. In nomine patro.... He took his spoon and stirred the soup. With care he took a small bite too taste if the soup was still too hot and then he looked up at Thomas again.
I must ask you sir More, if you still have a mind to resign your office?
He coughed a little as did some priests around him but he continued, fascinated by the subject. And he has stated his intention to oppose any legalisation which might be injurious to the church!
The coughing around him became louder and he coughed himself, more and more while to his horror, people around him fell on the ground and made rattling sounds as they lost consciousness.
