Cwm, (also known as the Welsh Jesuit College of St Francis Xavier), was a Jesuit gathering place, Ecclesiastical province and college in Llanrothal, Herefordshire, just a few miles from Skenfrith, where Father Andrews' brother, Thomas Andrews, lived. The college was raided several times during the Popish plot period and so one assumes that it was as a result of one of these raids that Father Andrews was forced into hiding. The pamphlet mentions a Justice of the Peace called 'Mr Arnal', probably John Arnold who was a vehement anti-Catholic, a stance which won him few friends in Monmouthsire, and who was involved in raiding the Jesuit College at Cwm. The pamphlet is signed J.D. but there seems no clue as to the author's identity.
