Page 24 - The. latter part of his life was spent, as all men of good sense will wish theirs may be, in ease, retirement, and the conversation of his friends.
Page 20 - Stage-poets have themselves been very bold with, and others very merry at, the memory of Sir John Oldcastle ; whom they have fancied a boon companion, a jovial roister, and yet a coward to boot, contrary to the credit of all chronicles, owning him a martial man of merit. The best is, Sir John Falstaff hath relieved the memory of Sir John Oldcastle, and of late is substituted buffoon in his place ; but it matters as little what petulant poets, as what malicious papists, have written against him.
