Pagina 522 - I will do it if you will allow me; only you must resolve and not delay or dally — the wings of man's life are plumed with the feathers of death.
Pagina 438 - It may please your Honour to be advertised that Fitzwilliam is returned from Spain, where his message was acceptably received, both by the King himself, the Duke of Feria, and others of the Privy Council. His despatch and answer were with great expedition and great countenance and favour of the King.
