We are all of us weak at times


The Baker (possibly an allusion to Thomas Cranmer) says:

241       “You may charge me with murder – or want of sense –
242              (We are all of us weak at times):
243       But the slightest approach to a false pretence
244              Was never among my crimes! …”
