this book shall treat, it is therefore convenient somewhat 2, 6/ 10
him. For -- were it by the Queen and 2, 7/ 5
husbands love), or were it a proud appetite of 2, 7/ 8
Edward (albeit he commanded it), when he wist it 2, 7/ 14
it), when he wist it was done, piteously bewailed 2, 7/ 14
his birth, ever froward. It is for truth reported 2, 7/ 23
so to think, hard it is to say -- 2, 9/ 14
not likely to speak it of naught. But now 2, 9/ 17
of this history. Were it that the Duke of 2, 9/ 20
never intended), certain is it that he contrived their 2, 9/ 25
division should be (as it was indeed) a furtherly 2, 10/ 1
somewhat the less regarded it, because he thought, whatsoever 2, 10/ 12
underset with pillows, as it is reported on this 2, 11/ 10
in your concord. For it sufficeth not that all 2, 11/ 19
have but ye give it, nor ye give it 2, 11/ 23
it, nor ye give it if ye agree not 2, 11/ 24
other's counsel, there must it needs be long ere 2, 11/ 26
hands together, when (as it after appeared by their 2, 13/ 30
and secret messengers, that it neither was reason nor 2, 14/ 22
weal or our woe, it were hard, I ween 2, 15/ 9
of their friends that it should be hard for 2, 16/ 7
in the mind that it neither were need and 2, 16/ 12
them to confusion, but it should not lie in 2, 18/ 21
lodging for them, because it was too strait for 2, 18/ 29
from the King whom it pleased them, and set 2, 19/ 31
was nothing content, but it booted not. And at 2, 20/ 2
the messenger to bear it to his nephew the 2, 20/ 6
and therefore could bear it the better. But for 2, 20/ 9
quoth the Archbishop, "be it as well as it 2, 21/ 14
it as well as it will, it will never 2, 21/ 14
well as it will, it will never be so 2, 21/ 14
as we have seen it." And thereupon, by and 2, 21/ 15
sore as she took it for, and that he 2, 22/ 1
prince your husband delivered it unto me, so here 2, 22/ 10
so here I deliver it unto you, to the 2, 22/ 10
York -- fearing that it would be ascribed (as 2, 22/ 28
would be ascribed (as it was indeed) to his 2, 22/ 29
Seal again, and brought it with him after the 2, 23/ 1
out of joint that it should never be brought 2, 23/ 21
again. Which strife, if it should hap, as it 2, 23/ 22
it should hap, as it were likely, to come 2, 23/ 22
This device, albeit that it made the matter to 2, 24/ 10
well satisfied, and said it were alms to hang 2, 24/ 15
realm; so that, were it destiny or were it 2, 24/ 30
it destiny or were it folly, the lamb was 2, 24/ 30
before. Now, all were it so that the Protector 2, 25/ 10
day a year till it were achieved, yet durst 2, 25/ 12
proposed unto them that it was an heinous deed 2, 25/ 20
cannot stand. And verily, it redoundeth greatly to the 2, 26/ 16
His Grace, to have it run in every man's 2, 26/ 18
in men's hearts, hard it is to wrest out 2, 26/ 23
can divine. "Wherefore, methinketh it were not worst to 2, 26/ 25
of any man, if it please him to take 2, 26/ 31
her reproach, perceive that it was only malice, frowardness 2, 27/ 13
be ready to change it upon your better advices 2, 27/ 18
the spiritualty present, that it were not in any 2, 27/ 28
against her will. For it would be a thing 2, 27/ 29
a bishop that durst it presume to consecrate. "And 2, 28/ 8
we shall not need it. But for any manner 2, 28/ 13
not we should do it. I trust that she 2, 28/ 14
manner obtained. And if it happen that I bring 2, 28/ 16
happen that I bring it not so to pass 2, 28/ 16
yet shall I toward it so far forth do 2, 28/ 17
For I dare take it upon my soul, she 2, 28/ 20
she well trusteth -- it is easy to perceive 2, 29/ 11
fetched from her, is it not likely enough that 2, 29/ 26
now as sore mindeth it as we the let 2, 29/ 28
that to pass (as it were no great mastery 2, 29/ 29
say nay but that it is a deed of 2, 30/ 7
the crown happen (as it hath done) to come 2, 30/ 11
they once fall thereto, it is pity the sanctuary 2, 30/ 16
were willful. And where it is otherwise, there need 2, 30/ 19
I dare well avow it: weigh the good that 2, 30/ 30
and ye shall find it much better to lack 2, 31/ 1
set their hands to, it might be amended, with 2, 31/ 18
than politic hath granted it, and other men since 2, 31/ 21
fear, have not broken it, let us take a 2, 31/ 22
pain therewith and let it a God's name stand 2, 31/ 23
man any place wherein it is lawful one man 2, 32/ 2
to baptism, to require it by their godfathers; he 2, 32/ 13
godfathers; he must ask it himself that must have 2, 32/ 13
himself that must have it. And reason, since no 2, 32/ 14
hath cause to have it but whose conscience of 2, 32/ 15
fain need to require it. What will, then, hath 2, 32/ 16
had discretion to require it if need were, I 2, 32/ 18
such a privilege that it shall discharge a man 2, 32/ 25
present, whether they said it for his pleasure or 2, 32/ 28
that. For therein, though it be a childish fear 2, 33/ 7
have deserved to need it, if they think it 2, 33/ 11
it, if they think it for their surety, let 2, 33/ 11
surety, let them keep it. But he can be 2, 33/ 12
hath wisdom to desire it nor malice to deserve 2, 33/ 13
nor malice to deserve it, whose life or liberty 2, 33/ 13
fetched. Howbeit, they thought it all best, in the 2, 33/ 23
with him -- were it for the respect of 2, 33/ 29
man's mind, or were it for that the Protector 2, 33/ 31
showed unto her that it was thought unto the 2, 34/ 7
majesty. To whose grace it were as singular comfort 2, 34/ 12
brother in company as it was their both dishonor 2, 34/ 13
whose both great wealth it were to be together 2, 34/ 25
esteemed not slight, though it seem light, well pondering 2, 34/ 27
not nay but that it were very convenient that 2, 34/ 32
in good faith, methinketh it were as great commodity 2, 35/ 2
that ye were, if it might stand with your 2, 35/ 20
sometimes be such that it should be more expedient 2, 35/ 27
And where they call it a thing so sore 2, 36/ 19
bideth in this place, it is all their honors 2, 36/ 20
they now be! But it is, I trow, no 2, 36/ 28
as God send grace it hurt not. And therefore 2, 37/ 7
have will to ask it nor malice to deserve 2, 37/ 16
nor malice to deserve it. And therefore they reckon 2, 37/ 16
therefore he cannot have it? Forsooth, he hath found 2, 38/ 3
painted process draweth? ' It is not honorable that 2, 38/ 11
the Duke bide here'; "it were comfortable for them 2, 38/ 11
shall hear him ask it, and he will. Howbeit 2, 38/ 22
he could not ask it; suppose he would not 2, 38/ 23
he would not ask it; suppose he would ask 2, 38/ 23
him, nor he ask it for himself, yet since 2, 39/ 2
him, I may require it for him -- except 2, 39/ 3
may take benefit of it), mine other son, now 2, 39/ 12
may not come to it. For taken out of 2, 40/ 4
partly, as she thought it might fortune her fear 2, 41/ 4
so well she wist it was either needless or 2, 41/ 5
from him, she deemed it best to deliver him 2, 41/ 6
corrupted. Then thought she it should yet make them 2, 41/ 10
wist where any of it lay in their own 2, 41/ 23
body, they would let it out. We have also 2, 41/ 23
them all; and that it were no doubt but 2, 43/ 21
but he would do it indeed if there were 2, 43/ 21
enterprise attempted. And that it was likely that as 2, 43/ 22
amended, he would turn it as much as he 2, 43/ 34
his own commodity. Then it was agreed that the 2, 44/ 1
and could never obtain it in King Edward's time 2, 44/ 5
as they would have it seem. And that they 2, 44/ 10
feared nor wherefore: were it that before such great 2, 44/ 25
tempest -- or were it that some one man 2, 44/ 27
friends secretly warned that it might haply turn them 2, 45/ 2
of Derby, wisely mistrusted it, and said unto the 2, 45/ 11
amiss toward me but it should be in mine 2, 45/ 18
in mine ears ere it were well out of 2, 45/ 18
surely great pity was it that he had not 2, 45/ 28
whether he could think it possible to win the 2, 46/ 13
mind better content that it was moved by her 2, 47/ 32
was not aware that it was by others devised 2, 48/ 5
and small -- as it was never other. And 2, 48/ 11
King's life, saving, as it is said, he that 2, 48/ 21
see thy head off." It booted him not to 2, 49/ 13
A marvelous case is it to hear, either the 2, 49/ 25
day thoughts? Tell him it is plain witchcraft to 2, 50/ 13
or if any be, it is rather in going 2, 50/ 19
that men should see it were by other men's 2, 50/ 20
men's falsehood than think it were either our own 2, 50/ 21
his way. Certain is it also that in the 2, 50/ 26
is toward, yet hath it been of an old 2, 50/ 30
knight unto him, as it were of courtesy to 2, 51/ 1
authority. This knight, when it happed the Lord Chamberlain 2, 51/ 5
another time in which it had happened them before 2, 51/ 17
for the while (but it lasted not long) far 2, 51/ 22
jeopardy so well past, it gave him great pleasure 2, 51/ 29
that would have done it. And this he required 2, 53/ 7
his death; so that it was the less marvel 2, 53/ 28
he was beheaded, and it was so curiously indited 2, 54/ 4
might well perceive that it was prepared before. For 2, 54/ 6
writing alone, all had it been but in paper 2, 54/ 8
merchant answered him that it was written by prophecy 2, 54/ 13
by and by, as it were for anger, not 2, 54/ 14
laughed at to hear it then so suddenly so 2, 54/ 23
that the Protector procured it more of a corrupt 2, 55/ 5
how filled would make it a fair face. Yet 2, 56/ 1
to any place but it were to his bed 2, 56/ 9
the truth (for sin it were to belie the 2, 56/ 14
evil turn, to write it in marble; and whoso 2, 57/ 5
good turn, we write it in dust -- which 2, 57/ 6
not been. Now was it so devised by the 2, 57/ 14
and make parties -- it were best hastily to 2, 58/ 8
in such wise that it might be well taken 2, 58/ 12
no shame, and so it harmed him the less 2, 59/ 7
was not incontinent upon it, but at St. Mary's 2, 59/ 10
after. But certain is it that Doctor Shaa was 2, 59/ 11
himself to marry (as it was requisite both for 2, 60/ 4
good conclusion. Now happed it that in the mean 2, 60/ 12
his desire than quenched it. And finally, after many 2, 61/ 18
they might easily perceive it booted not greatly to 2, 61/ 34
possibly might, alleging that it was his honor, profit 2, 62/ 2
not likely to take it well if all his 2, 62/ 7
she said also that it was not princely to 2, 62/ 9
thereupon, but only as it were a rich man 2, 62/ 11
so excellent but that it might be found in 2, 62/ 18
from her marriage, since it is an unsitting thing 2, 62/ 26
that she should take it well, yet was at 2, 63/ 4
own mind took she it well or otherwise. Howbeit 2, 63/ 5
together, as he trusted it was in his, than 2, 63/ 8
them. No more is it reason that it mislike 2, 63/ 27
is it reason that it mislike any man that 2, 63/ 27
that I marry where it liketh me. And I 2, 63/ 28
the bishop hardily lay it in my way when 2, 64/ 17
Orders. For I understand it is forbidden a priest 2, 64/ 18
but I never wist it yet that it was 2, 64/ 19
wist it yet that it was forbidden a prince 2, 64/ 19
so highly she disdained it that, under pretext of 2, 64/ 22
against his marriage, as it were in discharge of 2, 64/ 28
her. And that if it had not been for 2, 65/ 4
examination solemnly taken, when it was clearly perceived that 2, 65/ 7
this marriage, he took it so highly that his 2, 65/ 14
impossible to have attained it himself, if he had 2, 65/ 33
he had not reckoned it a greater thing to 2, 65/ 33
that he peaceably enjoyed it until his dying day 2, 66/ 6
in such plight left it that it could not 2, 66/ 6
plight left it that it could not be lost 2, 66/ 6
more at length because it might thereby the better 2, 66/ 10
that invention, simple as it was, it liked them 2, 66/ 12
simple as it was, it liked them to whom 2, 66/ 13
liked them to whom it sufficed to have somewhat 2, 66/ 13
began to show you, it was by the Protector 2, 66/ 15
always so provideth that it continueth not in their 2, 67/ 2
slip pulled up ere it can be rooted deep 2, 67/ 5
the crown, to whom it was, after the death 2, 67/ 10
noble duke." Now was it before devised that in 2, 67/ 33
King Richard!" -- that it might have been after 2, 68/ 5
of him, all were it that his own conscience 2, 68/ 30
of him much shame, it so struck him to 2, 68/ 33
or if any were, it rather grew of riot 2, 69/ 27
-- only for that it happed those to favor 2, 70/ 27
the crown by battle, it sufficed in a rich 2, 71/ 3
war, which albeit that it is ever the well 2, 71/ 10
much mischief, yet is it never so mischievous as 2, 71/ 10
so pestilent as when it happeneth among us, and 2, 71/ 13
dead is, God forgive it his soul. In whose 2, 71/ 15
of the garland, keeping it, losing and winning again 2, 71/ 17
losing and winning again, it hath cost more English 2, 71/ 17
speak of, saving that it is in vain to 2, 72/ 4
them. And, all were it that with this and 2, 72/ 16
this our present errand. It shall not, I wot 2, 72/ 33
that can better tell it, and of whom, I 2, 73/ 1
ye will better believe it. And reason is that 2, 73/ 2
And reason is that it so be. I am 2, 73/ 2
of this realm. Whereby it may well seem that 2, 73/ 21
the Lord Protector that it may like His Grace 2, 74/ 9
Which thing, I wot it well, he will be 2, 74/ 12
will if he take it. Which room, I warn 2, 74/ 15
have said, to take it upon him, yet shall 2, 74/ 22
so well-told. But, were it for wonder or fear 2, 75/ 14
and honor; which, as it seemeth, either you see 2, 76/ 8
nor distinct, but, as it were, the sound of 2, 76/ 15
manner, they wisely turned it to their purpose and 2, 76/ 26
their purpose and said it was a goodly cry 2, 76/ 26
since that we perceive it is all your whole 2, 76/ 29
we doubt not but it shall redound unto your 2, 76/ 31
His Grace would take it -- whom they would 2, 78/ 4
beseech His Grace that it would like him, of 2, 78/ 12
answered that all were it that he partly knew 2, 78/ 25
truth were not well-known, it should peradventure be thought 2, 78/ 31
peradventure be thought that it were his own ambitious 2, 78/ 32
so would so use it as he that would 2, 79/ 1
not worthy to have it. Notwithstanding, he not only 2, 79/ 2
so far gone that it was now no surety 2, 79/ 18
for that they thought it for the weal universal 2, 79/ 19
had not yet begun it. Wherefore if it would 2, 79/ 20
begun it. Wherefore if it would like His Grace 2, 79/ 20
either he must take it or else he and 2, 79/ 28
his both go from it, he said unto the 2, 79/ 28
the third time take it as compelled thereunto -- 2, 80/ 31
kings' games -- as it were, stage plays -- 2, 81/ 7
because he considered that it was the chiefest duty 2, 81/ 21
but wise men took it for a vanity. In 2, 82/ 2
his own destruction ended it. But as he finished 2, 82/ 15
covert dealing, men had it ever inwardly suspect, as 2, 82/ 29
such means as methinketh it were hard but it 2, 83/ 6
it were hard but it should be true. King 2, 83/ 7
himself as king, had it showed unto him that 2, 84/ 28
death which only knew it, could never since come 2, 86/ 8
light. Very truth is it, and well-known, that at 2, 86/ 9
coronation they departed, as it seemed, very great friends 2, 89/ 3
And the other, taking it in evil part, sent 2, 89/ 19
and King Richard said it was done in hatred 2, 89/ 22
right wise men think it unlikely (the deep dissimulating 2, 90/ 3
his hands. Very truth it is, the Duke was 2, 90/ 9
that said they saw it, that the Duke, at 2, 90/ 11
wealth, and nevertheless left it not nor forsook it 2, 90/ 25
it not nor forsook it in woe, but fled 2, 90/ 25
my lord, folly were it for me to lie 2, 92/ 5
ordered him to lose it, and King Edward to 2, 92/ 8
fault -- forasmuch as it shall not be taken 2, 92/ 29
as the party meant it, but as it pleaseth 2, 92/ 29
meant it, but as it pleaseth the prince to 2, 93/ 1
the prince to construe it. And ever I think 2, 93/ 1
not by thee. For it is none horn that 2, 93/ 8
what an he call it an horn -- where 2, 93/ 10
anything here spoken, for it shall never come near 2, 93/ 12
said the Bishop, "if it did, the thing that 2, 93/ 13
before God I meant it, could deserve but thank 2, 93/ 14
taken as I ween it would, might happen to 2, 93/ 15
more to wit what it was. Whereupon the Bishop 2, 93/ 17
little needing my praise), it might yet have pleased 2, 93/ 22
