A Gangrene In The Head (London’s Lamentations)

Sheriff of NottinghamThomas Brooks, 1670, London’s Lamentations, The Epistle Dedicatory:

A self-seeking magistrate is one of the worst of plagues and judgments which can befall a people! He is a gangrene in the head, which brings both a more speedy and a more certain ruin than if it were in some inferior and less noble part of the body.
