In answer to the treatise by John Hales, and another work published subsequently.

Possibly this may be the treatise mentioned by Wood as written on this subject by sir Anthony Browne, chief justice of the Common Pleas. A comparatively modern hand has made the following note on a fly-leaf. "This book is supposed to be written by Sr. Anthony Brown in the year 1566: he was one of the judges in Queen Elisabeth's reign." It is, however, an entirely distinct treatise from that published by bishop Leslie, (under the name of Philipps,) "with the aduise of Anthonie Broune, knight," in 1569 and 1571.

Beg. prol. "There came to my hands a printed booke."

Beg. chap. 1. "Firste of all it is to be considered that the lawe of the realme."
