Rection of Broadstairs, Kent by the author ?. William Chatuseks Anhoey, betrigth 18 by.

A HISTORY AND VINDICATION,

BASED ON

THE ORIGINAL AUTHORITIES.

BY

WILLIAM CHADWICK. II. 1833-1867

King John. What follows if we disallow of this?
Chat. The proud control of fierce and bloody war,

To enforce these rights so forcibly withheld.
King John. Here have we war for war, and blood for blood,

Controlment for controlment: so answer France.
Chat. Then take my king's defiance from my mouth,

The farthest limit of my embassy.
King John. Bear mine to him, and so depart in peace;

Be thou as lightning in the eyes of France;
For, ere thou canst report, I will be there,-
The thunder of my cannon shall be heard."

KING JOHN, Act i., Scene 1.

“Let time's black hand blot out the memorie

Of that vile age: and let it not be said
That John did ever guide this empire.

That future time with shame may not upbraid

This nation's name, by whom I was betray'd;
And say, that subjects yet did never bring
Such grievous wrongs upon a wretched king."

KING JOHN-A Mirrour for Magistrates.

LONDON:
JOHN RUSSELL SMITH, 36 SOHO SQUARE.

1865.
