Gerard Hides from the King and Cecil’s Men

Gerard knows Cecil is searching for him after the failure of the Gunpowder Plot so stays with Eliza in her home at Harrowden Hall. Eventually the King and Cecil’s men come to Eliza’s home to search for them. To keep safe Gerard hides himself in a priest hole, a secret compartment of the house. The house is searched for nine days and Eliza is taken to London accused of sheltering a Catholic priest.
