I was reading Book III of William Cowper's The Task today. Lines 252-260:
Such was thy wisdom, Newton, childlike sage,
Sagacious reader of the works of God,
And in his word sagacious. Such too thine,
Milton, whose genius had angelic wings,
And fed on manna. And such thine, in whom
Our British Themis gloried with just cause,
Immortal Hale, for deep discernment praised,
And sound integrity not more, than famed
For sanctity of manners undefiled.
Newton and Milton are easy of course. But who on earth is Hale? I've searched through Wikipedia for everyone with the surname Hale that Cowper would have known about, and the best match I can find is Sir Matthew Hale - a seventeenth century judge best known today for declaring the impossiblity of marital rape - which is still quite a jump from the first two!
