In the first case, they will probably find it difficult to convict the guilty author, although he is far from escaping suspicion.

He had read a great deal of divinity, and almost all the historians ancient and modern: So that he had great materials. He had with these an extraordinary memory, and a copious but unpolished expression. He was a man, as the Duke of Buckingham called him to me, of a blundering understanding.
