Censorial hearings

5 July 1588
Entry'George Baker, a surgeon, had been told by the Beadle to appear in the College on that day. But he replied that he would be absent because he was in the Queen's house and did not have sufficient leisure to enable him to come easily. And, even if he had sufficient free time, he would still refuse to obey the order: he added that he marvelled at the insolent audacity of the President on which no doubt he relied in summoning him to the College or in English "he marvailed muche how the President dirst be so saucie as to send for him to the College"!'
