Winning the Argument

Richard Hooker v. Walter Travers:

On Travers' complaint against Hooker that "he [Hooker] prayed before and not after his Sermons; that in his Prayers he named Bishops; that he kneeled both when he prayed and when he received the Sacrament, and (says Mr. Hooker in his defence) other exceptions so like these, as but to name, I should have thought a greater fault than to commit them."

--Walton, Life of Hooker in Hooker's Collected Works, vol. 1 at 46 (OUP 1875 ed.).

Nice one, mate!
