A. Vandyck. B. 1599. Prime Minister to Charles 1st on the death of Buckingham. He was impeached by the Commons, and sentenced to be executed; and when the King hesitated to sign the warrant, he wrote to the King and concluded in these words: "my consent, sir, shall more acquit you herein to God, than all the world can do besides: to a willing man there is no injury done." This he said in the hopes that his death would reconcile the people to their King. However, when Charles himself was going to be beheaded, he said "it was just that he should suffer for having signed the death warrant of Strafford." This admirable portrait is so full of character, that the very eye seems to penetrate one's thoughts whilst one regards it. The original of this is in the possession of the Marquis of Ormonde, to whose ancestor it was given by Charles 1st. [Pp. 12-13; exhibited under note: "The following are copies from celebrated pictures in various public galleries that have been made under Mr. Jones's superintendence, with a strict regard to the style of each master."]
