Magna Charta Recovered

The transcript of Magna Charta, now in the British Museum, was discovered
by Sir Robert Cotton in the possession of his tailor, who was just about
to cut the precious document out into "measures" for his customers. Sir
Robert redeemed the valuable curiosity at the price of old parchment,
and thus recovered what had long been supposed to be irretrievably lost.
