28 Mr. N E A L 'S IIa Vol. of the of Pains and Study ; a Man, happy in his Life ' and Death, loved of the Bell while he lived, and heard of God for his Deceafe; molt earneftly defiring, not many Days before he was ftricken, that he might not live to fee the Parliament, fo ' near as it was.' And yohn Stow adds *, ' That ' he was a Man born for the Benefit of his Coun- try, and Good ofhis Church ; wherein he ruled ' with fuch Moderation, as he continued in his Prince's Favour all his Life, fuppreflïng fuch new ' Sedts, as in his Time began to rife; as by his learned Work, written by him againfl fuch ' Schifms does appear.' Sir George Paul's Charadler of him, (who knew him perfedtly well) confirms what is faid by the Authors above- mentioned -t; ' Happy fure it was for the crazy State of the Church, not to meet with too rough and boifterous a Phyfician ; for he preferved with Conferves and Eledluaries, and ' fome gentle Purges, that which with ftrong Pur- ges, in all likelihood might have been in dan- ' ger.' And the Author profeffes he could not fuf ficiently exprefs that Archbifhop's fingular Wif dom and Clemency ; albeit fome younger Spirits were of opinion, that he was much to blame in that kind, and imputed it to his Years, and want of Courage. Robert 7ohnflon, a Scotch Hifforian, gives him a great Charadler, for which I refer the Reader to the Margin. But Id. ib. fi Sir G. Paul's Life of Archbifhop Whitgift, p. Sa. Johnfioni Rer.
