’A babbled of green fields.
Shakespeare.—King Henry V., Act II. Scene 3. (Mrs. Pistol to Bardolph.)

Over whose acres walked those blessed feet,
Which fourteen hundred years ago were nailed,
For our advantage, on the bitter cross.
Shakespeare.—King Henry IV., Part I. Act I. Scene 1. (The King to Westmoreland.)
