Sivu 393 - Court may deem it right to relax the rule against leading questions, and allow the examination in chief to assume something of the form of a cross-examination.
Sivu 312 - The perjuries, indeed," quoth he, " were sundry: one in the witnesses and compurgators ; another in the jury, compounded of clerks and laymen ; and of the third, the judge himself was not clear, all turning the solemn trial of truth by oath, into a ceremonious and formal lie.
