Following PU1/49/2/3 shows Francis Bacon (1st Viscount St Alban), clad in sixteenth-century dress, standing over his current successor as Lord Chancellor, Richard Bethell. Bacon tells Bethell, 'Thou has not save thy bacon, my lord—but marry! have not I been called "streaky"'. The source for this line is allegedly À Beckett 1846–48.
