Page 455 - Brougham concluded, was the case before their lordships. He begged again to call their attention, at the risk of fatiguing by repetition, to the two grand points of defence which he hoped their lordships would never dismiss from their minds — first, that the case was not confirmed by witnesses, for neglecting to call whom there was no pretence whatever— the second point was, that every one witness that had been called was injured in credit.
