עמוד 238 - ... declaration- of the practices and treasons attempted and committed by Robert late earl of Essex and his complices...
עמוד 7 - It is worthy the observing, that there is no passion in the mind of man so weak, but it mates, and masters, the fear of death : and therefore death is no such terrible enemy, when a man hath so many attendants, about him, that can win the combat of him. Revenge triumphs over death; love slights it; honour aspireth to it; grief flieth to it...
עמוד 6 - The faults he hath he learn how to hide and colour them, but not much to amend them ; like an ill mower, that mows on still, and never whets his scythe : whereas with the learned man it fares otherwise, that he doth ever intermix the correction and amendment of his mind with the use and employment thereof.

He confesseth, he should have been to blame to have denied it. [For in the Earl's usual talk he was wont to say that he liked not that any man should be troubled for his religion.]* CHRISTOPHER BLUNT.
עמוד 98 - I think, if your lordship lent your reputation in this case ; that is, to pretend, that if peace go not on, and the queen mean to make, not a defensive war as in times past, but a full re-conquest of those parts of the country, you would accept the charge ; I think it would help to settle Tyrone in his seeking accord, and win you a great deal of honour gratis.
עמוד 78 - That all houses of husbandry, that were used with twenty acres of ground and upwards, should be maintained and kept up for ever; together with a competent proportion of land to be used and occupied with them...
