Source: Letter from John Chamberlain to Sir Dudley Carleton

Sir Henry Neville, in recompense for all that is past, or that he was to look for hereafter, was in hand long with a kind of informing suit for the spoil of woods, which might have been worth a good value to him. And having now brought it to that pass, that it was, as it were, hatched and ready to disclose, it is utterly crushed, and all his hopes at an end. Which is but a bad medicine for a man that hath at this instant three dangerous diseases upon him, that is, the jaundice, the scorbut, and a dropsy, which have brought him to a very weak case, and will utterly overthrow him, if he find not present remedy.
