Bill Paid In Full

Jests Home




AT Wimpole there was to be seen a portrait of Mr. Harley, the speaker,
in his robes of office. The active part he took to forward the bill to
settle the crown on the house of Hanover induced him to have a scroll
painted in his hand, bearing the title of that bill. Soon after George
the First arrived in England, Harley was sent to the Tower, and this
circumstance being told to Prior whilst he was viewing the portrait, he
wrote on the white part of the scroll the date of the day on which
Harley was committed to the Tower, and under it: THIS BILL PAID IN
FULL.
