“ For Friends, although your lordship be scant, yet I hope you are not altogether destitute; if you be, do but look upon good books : they are true friends, that will neither flatter nor dissemble : be you but true to yourself, applying that which they teach upto the party grieved, and you shall need no other comfort nor counsel. To them and to God's holy Spirit, directing you in the reading of them, I commend your lordship."-BACON to Chief Justice Coke.
