'Why should the private pleasure of some one (1479)

Become the public plague of many moe? (1480)

Let sin, alone committed, light alone (1481)

Upon his head that hath transgressed so; (1482)

Let guiltless souls be freed from guilty woe:
For one's offence why should so many fall, (1484)

To plague a private sin in general?
