Not illustrated. 1816 edition. Excerpt: ...and I do not know I had one more; I had never from my lord Bellasis more then two gxiineas, nor from my lord Petre than five. And that was at the time when I carried him the paper which I will give your lordship an account of by and bye: I never spoke to my lord Arundel, though I met him often; nor with my lord Powis, then upon this account. Mr. Bedloe did desire me to go and tell the lords in the tower, that if they did well reward him he would make the charge he had against them very easy. My lord, I did tell him this is an affair which I cannot in prudence deal in; for, said I, you are a designing man, and how you will deal with me afterwards I do riot know. Said he, it is in your power, Mr. Reading, by this that 1 have said to do me a mischief, because, if you do discover what I have said to you, you will be believed; but if 1 should offer this against you 1 shall never be believed. And with all the imprecations in the world I do curse myself, if I did directly or indirectly offer to persuade him to diminish his evidence, but he proposed it to me. But, said I, here is one Mr. Dugdale, and he may give evidence against my lord Stafford, though you do not, and what will you do as to him. Believe me, said he, that I deal entirely with you by this token; did not Dugdale come to you to desire you to draw up his evidence; and so he did, my lord, and told me he Mould be responsible for it. I told him I was unwilling to meddle with such an affair, but if he would come to my chamber I would give him what leisure I had, in order to the drawing up of his evidence into a method, but he never came. Mr. Bedloe told me, said he, believe me in all the rest by this token, have a care of him, he is set on purpose to ensnare you. Saith he, tell from me he shall do.show more
