His love of his own land, and his hatred of her enemies, were always ardent; nor did he permit the harsh ill treatment to which he was subjected by the hos tility of his rivals, the intrigues of Spain, the caprices Of Queen Elizabeth, and the insurmount able dislike of King james, to dampen or dull the fire of his patriotism.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
