...the arrival of Brute in this island is itself very disputable, as resting solely on the suspicious credit of the British history; and as to Juno's asylum at Troy, that, as has been before conjectured, may possibly be a prolepsis.  But do not authors tell us that Ælfred the Great assumed these Molmutian laws into his code?  And is not this what Jeffrey means, by saying, the laws of Molmutius were famous among the English to this day?  I answer, sir John Spelman has shewn, that this is not fact:...
