    Excerpt from Memoir of the Rev. Francis Higginson

    As Leicester was accounted a place generally favorable to Puritanism, many courtiers, lords and gentlemen agreed on a plan for tarnishing its good name, by degrading themselves. Accordingly they visited it, invited the mayor and aldermen to, partake of a collation, and prevailed on them to drink so many healths on their knees, that they were intoxicated. This disgraceful scene became the topic of common conversation. Mr. Higginson, believing, that the offence came within the Scripture injunction, Them that sin before all, rebuke before all that others may fear, felt it his duty to deliver a public discourse. This he did in the presence of the Mayor and Alder men, from a text, which was the basis of his remarks on the sinfulness of drinking healths and drunkenness, and particularly so in magistrates, whose obligation was to punish it in others under their authority. He applied the subject by admonishing them to repent of the scandal, thus committed. The reproof was variously taken. They who lightly esteemed the yoke of Christianity, were much displeased, and denounced it as impudence instead of faithfulness. Of this class were some of the men implicated in the fault. Others, who had so fallen, made ingenuous confessions of their offence. Many more, who counted divine command far above human deception and resentment, approved the sermon. No ill effects appeared to come on the preacher.
