Look inside the book:
Whatever may have been the legal or equitable right of Ashmole, upon which the decree in Chancery was founded, it is impossible for a generous mind to come to any other conclusion than that the course he pursued was unworthy of him as a man of education, and of his wealth and station; for it must be obvious from the will of Tredescant, that even supposing he had willingly and wittingly made a deed of gift of his treasures to Ashmole, and given him formal possession by handing over the Queen Elizabeth's shilling, it is next to impossible to believe that Ashmole did not know that he repented that act, and wished to connect his own name with the bequest to the University. ...'The sublime character his Grace did latelie bestow on a brace of his own Chaplains, that he feared not, not he, to turn them loose against any two preachers in England, has rais'd so high an opinion of your person in all men of sense and understanding, that you cannot wonder to see yourself courted by us as the reigning favourite at Lambeth; be pleas'd, therefore, when business of State or the care of the Church aford his Grace some minutes of leisure, to represent our deplorable case to Him: we are now as a flock without a Shepheard, and are inform'd by a threat'ning Emissary, who came latelie down only to scatter terror through our fields, that my Ld designs to thrust a young looker amongst us, who, tho' fit to be an Amanuensis, should the dreadfull times of Pulton return, yet knows not yet what doctrine He should give, nor what tithes He should receive.
