LORD STANLEY came plainly dressed to request a private audience of King
James I., but was refused admittance into the royal closet by a
sprucely-dressed countryman of the king's. James hearing the altercation
between the two, came out and inquired the cause. My liege, said Lord
Stanley, this gay countryman of yours has refused me admittance to your
presence.--Cousin, said the king, how shall I punish him? Shall I
send him to the Tower?--O no, my liege, replied Lord Stanley,
inflict a severer punishment,--send him back to Scotland!
