Sabatini, R. (n.d.). The Wedding Gift. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Sir George Jeffreys, Lord Chief Justice of England, looked up from the papers before him, and fixed his melancholy eyes upon his visitor, the Lady Mary Ormington. ?You have done the State a great service, ma'am, said he, his voice gentle, his utterance slow. ?Of that there is no more doubt than that you'll be setting a price on't.? And his red lips?startling red in so pale a face?were twisted never so faintly in a sneer. He was arrayed in his scarlet, ermine?bordered robes, for he was fresh from the court?house of Dorchester, where, pursuing the instructions of his Royal master, and venting a savage humour, sprung, perhaps, from the awful disease that ravaged him, he had horribly dealt out the dread, unsparing justice that was to make his name a by?word of blood?lust.
