"To keep unity and quietness in the realm it" was "ordained that no preachers" should "contend openly in the pulpit one against another, nor uncharitably deprave one another in open audience.

Rest! there's none for me in this world. And whilst I'm in it, is not it my duty to work for my wife and children? Reach me my clothes, and I'll get up." It was in vain to contend with him, when this notion seized him that it was his duty to work till the last.

His homely Muse can hardly raise her wing from the ground, nor spread her hidden glories to the sun.
