Richard Hathaway allegedly cannot be made to eat and drink in court though the doctor present tries several means to get him to; it is decided to have him scratch Sarah Morduck before the court, and when he does, Hathaway immediately calls for food. Sir Thomas Lane orders bread and cheese be provided to him, and Hathaway is said to consume more than an ordinary man would in three days. Lane then observes Hathaway urinate voluminously into his britches, and pass a small amount of excrement.(2)
