" This paper," said Mr. Runnington, holding up that which Mr. Aubrey at once identified as the one on which he had cast his eye upon its being handed to him by Waters, " is a Declaration in Ejectment, with which Mr. Tomkins has nothing whatever to do.- "Ten Thousand a-Year. Volume 1.", Samuel Warren.
