Dean Swift And King William





THE motto which was inserted under the arms of William, Prince of

Orange, on his accession to the English crown, was, Non rapui sed

recepi [I did not steal it, but I received it]. This being shown

to Dean Swift, he said, with a sarcastic smile, The receiver is as

bad as the thief.
