C 1/803/29

George Goldwyn. v. Nicholas Wulberde of London, merchant tailor:
Perjury in the sheriff's court in an action of detinue for a whistling
linnet which plaintiff intended to present to the Queen, 'for there is
not within the realme of Inglond suche a byrde of pleasure myrthe and
swete syngyng and whistlyng'.


(I expect it ended up in someone's pie)
