Johnny Lingo lived in the South Pacific. The islanders all spoke highly
of this man, but when it came time for him to find a wife the people shook
their heads in disbelief. In order to obtain a wife you paid for her by giving
her father cows. Four to six cows was considered a high price. But the woman
Johnny Lingo chose was plain, skinny and walked with her shoulders hunched
and her head down. She was very hesitant and shy. What surprised everyone
was Johnny's offer -- he gave eight cows for her! Everyone chuckled about it,
since they believed his father-in-law put one over on him.

The observer Sir Edward Hoby remarked "Since Johnson's being in the Tower, he beginneth to speak English". Fawkes revealed his true identity on 7 November, and told his interrogators that there were five people involved in the plot to kill the King. He began to reveal their names on 8 November, and told how they intended to place Princess Elizabeth on the throne. His third confession, on 9 November, implicated Francis Tresham . Following the Ridolfi plot of 1571 prisoners were made to dictate their confessions, before copying and signing them, if they still could.  Although it is uncertain if he was tortured on the rack, Fawkes's scrawled signature bears testament to the suffering he endured at the hands of his interrogators.
