Side 180 - that the common lawyers will be passionately against it, who are wont to put such a prejudice upon all other professions, as if none were to be trusted, or capable to administer justice but themselves ; yet how well this suits with monarchy, when they monopolize all to be governed by their yearbooks, you in England have a costly example.
Side 303 - And twenty other gambols mo, Because they will be merry. Then wherefore in these merry days Should we, I pray, be duller ? No, let us sing some roundelays, To make our mirth the fuller. And, whilst thus inspired we sing, Let all the streets with echoes ring, Woods and hills, and everything, Bear witness we are merry.
