Excerpt from The Life of Sir Thomas More
"And indeed none of the many other writers of Sir Thomas's Life, can any way pretend to the same advantages and Opportunities of knowing him which the author of this little history had, who not only married his beloved daughter, with whom Sir Tho mas entrusted his secrets, but who lived sixteen years in the same house with Sir Thomas, and was his attendant and companion almost wherever he went. Accordingly he gives this reason himself for his committing to writing these Memoirs of Sir Thomas's that he knew his doings and mind no man living so well."
