If I would calumniate, I could say no
ill of that Gentleman: I know not
whether my L. or my selfe tooke the first
apprehension of it; but I remember that

mation of him. This gave my L. oc-
casion to send him abroade in his Service
after: how hee satisfied him in that im-
ployment, indeed I know not. But,

some things, which hee had deposed in
[CW: him.]
