Chaff, corn, root (v.)

King Henry VIII, [5.1.108-115]. Cranmer. “I humbly thank your highness,/ And am right glad to catch this good occasion/ Most thoroughly to be winnowed, where my chaff/ and corn shall fly asunder. For I know/ There’s none stands under more claumnious tongues/ Than I myself, poor man.” King. “Stand up, good Canterbury!/ Thy truth and thy integrity is rooted/ In us, thy friend. Give me thy hand, stand up.”
