Pre-Halloween Historical Cryptogram

1st clue for this cryptogram: I needed to translate the words out of their archaic English spellings to make it a bit more fair for you.
2nd clue: L = K
3rd clue: D = Y

    Worked on this last night. I think I will give other people time in ‘witch’ to have fun before I post the answer. I cant be the only nerd here… There has to be someone out there who likes to do these.

    • Thanks for your restraint, and your subtle clue. No, you’re not the only one – and it’s so, so much better to be a nerd than to be among the herd of the disinterested.
