Parallel - Rag and Remnant


"Away, thou rag, thou quantity, thou remnant" The Taming of the Shrew 4.3.112

And Bacon:
"He thought it [an outbreak of force] but a rag or remnant of Bosworth field." Bacon in History of Henry VII

Comment: No one  claims to have found the collocation of "rag" and "remnant" anywhere else.
