under their vines and fig-trees, freed from the terrors and turmoils of tumultuous broils : and that your Highness may obtain and enjoy the continual protection of the omnipotent Protector, to crown your Highness and the nations with loving kindness and tender mercies, shall be the constant prayer of Your Highness's most humble,
And faithfully devoted,
LORD CHIEF JUSTICE HALE,
HE resigned his chief justiceship about a year before his death, and betook himself to the most retired privacy, in order to a preparation for his departure, according to his own Paraphrase of Seneca's Thyestes, Act 2.

DR. CHARLTON. IN one of his books, purchased by Dr. Howe at his sale, under his own portrait, were written the following lines on himself in his own handwriting :
Foeminas quotquot vidit, amavit ;
Voluịt quas amavit,
Non omnes uni!
BARON WALLOP, HE was a great lawyer, and very witty: he
: was bold to stand up for the liberty of the sub
ject, when few other lawyers would or durst ; yet, when King William came in, was neglected very unhandsomely, which made Mr. (Julian) Johnson, at the end of one of his books, to ask, and
, that in great letters, why Mr. Wallop was not made a judge ? to which one replied, " For the same reason that Mr. Johnson is not made a bishop." Both of them spoke and wrote sharply against the corruptions of men in power, which stopped the current of civil promotion to the one, and ecclesiastical to the other. At last Lord Chancellor Somers took notice of Mr. Wal-, lop, and put him into Baron Tetlock's place, but not before he needed it: he did not enjoy it long, having died lately.
When King James put out his declaration for liberty of conscience, " This," said Mr. Wallop, “ is but 'scaffolding ; they intend to build a house (popery); and, when their house is built, they 'll take down their scaffolds."
When the bishops put forth their declaration for the liberty of the subject, “ What," said he, “ now, arbitrary government is broke put, do they hope thus to prevent it? This is, as when they had knocked out the barrel head, they should think to stop all in with their thumbs."

PRINCE Charles (afterwards Charles II.), when he was young, awoke one night in a very M 3
great disorder and frightful passion out of his sleep. Dr. Duppa, who was his tutor, and lay in the chamber with him, got up to quiet him, asking what the matter was? He said, his grandfather had appeared to him. After a considerable time he was got to sleep again; but not long after, he cried more fearfully than before, and told the Doctor, and others that came about him,
My grandfather appeared a second time to me, and told me he had left my father three kingdoms, but my father would leave me none;" which proved true enough in twelve years, and might have been longer ; but as a great prince * said of the English, that he had hitherto been a great admirer of them and their prudence, “But,” said he, “ I am of another mind now, since they have cut off their king's head, and then afterwards send for his son to revenge it on themselves."
From Dr. Lightfoot's MSS, to whom it "; "; was communicated by Dr. Duppa.
