Our puisne Judge I have nothing to say against; he is a very honest man, for aught I know; but I cannot be silent as to our chief Judge; and I will name him, because what I have to say will appear more probable. His name is Sir George Jeffreys, who, I must say, behaved himself more like a Jack-pudding than with that gravity which becomes a Judge.

The King was much chagrined at the loss of such a valuable Recorder, and said sarcastically that " he was not parliament proof.
