SPO overcomes the difficulty of matching an individual Calendar entry to the original Paper by linking each facsimile document to its Calendar entry

SPO reunites documents sub-divided by earlier generations (Domestic, Foreign, etc)

SPO is created in consultation with Advisory Board of key British and American experts on the subject and documents

1. Has known Sir Walter Leveson 23 years.

2. Sir Walter divers times persuaded him to practise with him to make divers powders and other things, and to prove their effect and promised him for his pains the manor of Hales or Parton.

3. Sir Walter said he could so poison a silver cup or bowl that whosoever drank thereof would be poisoned, and showed him how; viz., that he would first put a toad called Rubata into the cup, and put a silver cover upon it, and then coals on the covers by which means the heat of the fire would open the pores of the silver cup, and draw in the poison of the toad.

4. At Lilleshall Sir Walter put in practice a perfume that would poison those that smelt it as they lay in bed; as it was distilling, the bottom of the still melted, and the perfume being in the fire, the savour thereof was so noisome to them that smelt it that it almost poisoned them; a servant caused a smith, tenant of Sir Walter\'s, to make a perfuming pot for the purpose.

5. Sir Walter said that Pascal Tapscott gave Robt. Greise, the boy of his kitchen, a potion that he thought he would have died thereof.
