The Countrey and people of France are given to all kind of jollities, and divertisements, There you shall meet with boon companions, the Rogers of the good time, who will be as merry as Crickets, or Mice in malt: You must not be of such a dull Saturnin humour, as not to jovialize sometimes with such, and with a cup of good liquor to chace away all care, and cumber, for one ounce of mirth, is better then a whole pound of melancholy.

If you have a mind to entertain a Lacquay, you shall find enough in that Countrey, but take heed of choosing one who is too Officieux, for he is a Lacquay for the Devil who doth more then he is commanded. During your absence, if there be any thing imaginable wherein I may steed you, I will employ green and dry, I will set my five sences on work to serve you; for I am from the center of my heart.

This Proverb is taken from a Droll called Robin who lived in Paris, and is meant of one who impertinently makes mention of something that his fancie runs upon, having nothing else in his mouth. This Proverb grew up first in the town of Troy in Champany, where this John Colot lived, who was an Artizan, and a good fellow, and had commonly at his girdle a sheath, wherein there were three or four knives, all of little value, and having some fault or other, as one having the point broke, the other hacked on the edge, the other blunted, the other did not cut at all; And hence did arise this Proverb, which is properly spoken of things, whereof there is no great choice, as also of men that are of little value.

We are taught by these words, that oft times the good opinion and judgement which we have of some persons are grounded more upon common report then upon Truth it selfe, in so much that the reputation is more then the thing it selfe; And it is found that there are many whom the vulgar cry up to be wise, learned, and valiant, and adorned with other Vertues, yet they have nothing of all these three if one should pry narrowly unto them. One called Martin having lost his Asse in the Fair, it happened that another was found which had been also lost, the Iudge of the place was of that opinion that that Asse should be restored to Martin, but he who had him in his possession, desired the Iudge to ask Martin of what colour his Asse was, who having answered, that he was all gray, he was put by his claim, because there was a black hair found in the Asse's tail.

This Proverb is borrowed from horses, to whom the best usage they can have besides oats and hey is to give them good store of fresh straw for their Litter; And by this similitude, it may be spoken of those that are at their ease, and have all things to their hearts desire. By this Proverb we are taught, that all things in this world come to an end, as there is no day ever so long, but hath its declination. Use is made of this Proverb, when one is mounted up to the highest degree of his fortune; For the nature of the Pie is, to build her nest upon the highest trees that she can choose.

It is well known, that from all times it was ordained to pay dimes or tithes unto the Lord, which was the tenth part of our earthly increase; This was kept so holy, that every one used to leave upon the field the tenth sheaf: Now, it happened that some prophane persons made of purpose some kinde of sheaves wherein there were no grains, wherewith they payed their tithes: Which gave occasion to this Proverb, and it may be applyed to any person of an ill Conscience, whether towards God, or man, whereof there were never more then now adayes, thank the long Parliament.

By these words is meant a gross fellow ill taught, and uncivil, such as they commonly are who are of a low degree, whose ordinary food is Bacon and Beef. T Hey say commonly that Running waters are the cleerest, and those of the Brook farr more then they of a standing Bog; In like manner the Spirits of those who travel up and down the world, and by their motions apply themselves to the study of Men, become thereby more cleer, acute, and subtile. It is also observed among Vegetables, that according to the Proverb the best oignons are those which are transplanted; Therefore I highly approve of the resolution you have to cross the Alpes, and afterwards the Apennin hill, the chinebone of Italy.

In Italy you shall meet with many cunning Rooks that have more doublings in them then a Cabage; Therefore take heed of associating with such, specially to fall a gaming whereunto the Italians are extraordinarily addicted for they say that gaming doth gnaw one to the very bone. Being entred Lombardy, you shall see Milan the Great, so call'd as well for her strength, as for her bigness, whence sprung the Proverb, Milan can talk, and Milan can do, yet she cannot turn water into wine; In those quarters take head of a Lombard bit, viz.

Thence you will pass to the Venetian Dominions, and among other the Noble Citty of Vicenza deserves to be saluted, for they say that Vienza hath more Counts and Cavaliers, then Venice hath Gondolleers: Thence you may direct your cours to Padua, called the chief residence of Hippocrates, and thence to Venice, where they say one may see an impossibility in an impossibility; there you may kiss Neptunes spouse, for Venice is called so, though some would have her to be a Concubine to the Turk: The Venetians they say are hard to be pleased, if the Proverb be true that there are foure difficult things, viz.

To make a bed for a Dogg, to roast an Egg well, to teach a Florentine, and serve a Venetian; Being there, you shall do well to visite the Arsenal, one of the Grandezas of the world for its strength, whence sprung the saying, that the whole Arsenal of Venice is not able to arm a Coward; In that melting Citty, take heed of Females, for a woman may be a woe to a man; The Courtezans of that Lake, are cried up for the fairest in the world, according to the Proverb, Vienza wine, Treviso tripes, Padua bread, and Venice whores; whence sprung another, Venice, O Venice, none thee unseen can prize, but who hath seen too much will thee despise.

It matters not much whether you see Calabria or no, the Territory of the Tarantolas, it being a sad barren Cuntrey, yet abounding with Nobles, In so much that somtimes three Marquesses may be seen eating Figgs upon one tree to drive away hunger. Among other things, you may observe in Naples and Milan the affection that the peeple bear to the Spanish, and French, where both the one and the other use to say, that they would be content to see all the Spaniards in Italy hung up with Frenchmens gutts; whence you way judge who is best beloved. But to wind up the threed of this coorse letter; I hope, that after your return, it will not be verified of you, that an Englishman Italionat is a Devill Incarnat, much less that you will be of the number of those who go out Masters, and come back Clarks in the point of Knowledge.

I can extend my self no further now, for ther's a sudden accident hath surprised me, that will hold me more busie then an English Furnace on Christmas day morning; Onely I say, that if I may steed you in any thing while you are absent, I will do what I can to serve you, and somthing less that I may last your's the longer: So, after the Lombard fashion without any clawing of Complements, I remain. Da matto attizato, da uno che legge un libro solo, da villan riffatto, da Recipe de Medici, da etcetera de notari guardici dio.

Una volta l anno cavati sangue, una volta il mese entra nel bagno, una volta la semana lavati la testa, una volta il giorno bascia la tua donna. Buon di Dante, di donde vieni, quanto erto el fango? Di Roma, final cul, buon di, buon anno. Pan Padouan, vin Vicintin, tripe Trevisane, puttane Venetiane. In Roma chi segue le fortune le fuggono, chi non l'aspetta le vengono. Vorrei esser' in Guimea dove rompono le bracchia a chi parla di lavorare.

Roma la santa, Milan la grande. Napoli la gentile, Venetia la signorile. Bologna la grassa, Padova la passa. Venetia la ricca, Genoa la superba. Lingua Toscana in bocca Romana. Donna Graeca, vin Graeco, vento Graeco. Il Francese non dice come pensa, non legge come scrive, non canta come nota. Non troppo bene, tratto da i convalescenti che per la de bo lezza ora s'ul letto, ora s'ul lettuccio si gettano. He hath too little of that whereof the bull hath too much, viz.

VVho is not something at twenty, nor knows not at thirty, nor hath not at fourty, He never will be, nor will he ever know, nor will ever have any thing. He who liveth in hope doth dance in a hoope, viz. The company of one is no company at all, the company of two is the company of God, the company of three is the company of a King, the company of foure is company of the Devil. The Mule that laughs, and the woman that fleers, the first will overthrow thee, ehe other will scratch thee. Who letteh his wife go to every feast, and his horse to drink at all waters, will have a jade to the one, and a whore to the other.

A gentleman without money is like a wall without a cross; piss'd at by every body. Who lends money, looseth two things; viz. From an angry fool, from one that reads but one book, from an upstart Squire, from the Physicians recipe, and the Scrivenors etcaetera, the Lord deliver us. The hardest step is that over the threshold, viz. To go whither Pope nor Emperour can send an Ambassador, viz. To stand waiting and not to come, to lie a bed and not to sleep, to serve well and not to please, are three things as bad as death. He is a bankerupt; whose punishment in Italy is to sit bare on a stone in the market place.

To render good for evil is Charity, evil for good cruelty, ill for ill revenge, good for good justice. A four white-foot horse is a horse for a fool, a three white-foot horse is a horse for a King, and if he hath but one Ile give him to none. I am not afraid of ill faces, for I was born at Shrovetide, viz. January commits the fault, and May bears the blame. Three seasonable showres in August, are worth king Salomons Chariot and horses. Bread of one day, an egg of one hour, wine of one year, fish of ten, a woman of fifteen, and a friend of a hundred.

Who will keep himself in health, let him piss like a dogg; viz. One egg is nothing, two a little better then nothing, three are something, five are too many, and six kill. Once a year let bloud, once a moneth bath, once a week wash thy head, i. June, July and August, wife, I know thee not. Keep thy feet dry, and thy head warm, and for the rest, live like a beast; viz. He is full of talk, it being the custome in Italy to give the greatest talker the rump of the hen. Good morrow Dante, whence comest thou, how high is the dirt? Answer, From Rome, up to the tail, a good day, and a good year to you.

As he of Perugia, who when his head was broke, ran home for his helmet. Padoua bread, Vicenza wine, Treviso tripes, and Venice courtesans. If Florence had a port, she would make a garden of Pisa, a counting house of Ligorn, and a jaques of Luca. In Rome preferments seek them that seek them not, and fly from them that seek them. The Greeks spoke with lipps, and the Romans with their breasts.

The Germanes have their wits at their fingers ends, viz. I would be in Guimea where they have their arms broke who speak of working. The Nuns of Genoa return from the bath, and then ask leave of the Abadess. Rome the holy, Milan the great. Nations do diversly digest their grief; The Dutch drink it away, the French sings it away, the Spaniard grones it away, and the Italian sleeps it away. I am a Guelphian, and call my self a Gibelin, he that giveth most shall have me. Naples the gentile, Venice the ladylike. Bologna the fat, and Padova more then that. Venice the rich, Genoa the proud.

The Toscan toung sounds best in a Roman mouth. The men of Genoa get their wives with child a hundred miles distant. In Italy there are too many heads, viz. Wo be to that Countrey where there is a Calabrese, if he stay there a year, he brings nothing but ruine and mischief. A Milanese, or Montouan would blush at this. The Italians are wise before the fact, the Germans in the fact, the French after the fact. The Florentine maketh nothing of three things, of Adieu, farewel, do you want any thing?

A Greek woman, Greek wine, and Greek wind may I find. I love a Spaniard so well, that I could be contented to see him hang'd with a Frenchmans guts. Where Dutchmen are, Italians will not likely be; viz. LIncei, Fantastici, Humoristi, di Roma. Addormentati di Genoa. Olympici di Vicenza. Innominati di Parma. Invaghiti di Mantova. Affidati di Pavia. Offuscati di Cesene.

Caliginosi d' Ancona. Adagiati di Rimini. Insensati di Perousa. Catenati di Macerata. Ostinati di Viterbo. Immobili d' Alexandria. Occulti di Bresia. Perseveranti di Treviso. Oscari di Luca. Raffrontati di Ferma. Milan can doe, Milan can speake, but she cannot turn water into wine. More foolish then they of Zago, who dung'd the foot of the Steeple to make it grow higher.

She is like a woman of Castel Cerino, fair afar off, and foul near hand. He is streighter in the waste then any Spaniard, viz. Po would not be Po, if Adda, and Tesin did not joyn also. Who hath to deal with a Florentine must have both his eyes about him. By this is meant, that when ye drink good wine, you use to say Good, bowing one eare, but when it is naught, you shake both eares.

This is understood of those which sometimes are constrained to sell their commodities at a lower rate then they are worth, because that having cold in their feet, they may goe warm themselves at the fire, and so vice versa. Who resisteth the good will of God, his businesses goe from bad to worse. Some crosses, and fits of sicknesses do well with a strong or proud man. Because there are but few of them, as it was preached before the Duke of Savoy, who is Prince of Piemont. Tocante el Hinoio, y la ruda ay dos refranes muy notables, es a saber, Quien hinojo vee, y no coje, diablo es, que no hombre; el otro, si supiesse la muger la virtud de la ruda, la buscaria de noche a la luna.

H Ealth being the most precious jewel that Nature hath in her Cabinet, I recommend unto you three Doctors for the maintenance thereof, viz. Touching the second Doctor, which concerns the government of the body, 'tis a great truth, that a little labour is much health; 'tis good to walk till blood appear in the cheeks, and not sweat on the brow. Touching Sleep, who is the King of Repose, sleep in the day when thou wilt, and in the night as much as thou canst; make night of night, and day of day, then thou maist sing welladay: But he who desires to sleep soundly, let him buy the boulster of one who died in debt.

Moreover, dine with little, and sup with lesse, sleep high, and thou wilt live long; But take heed of sleeping on the shadow of a Wallnut-tree: Besides, 'tis good to rise early, for he who will couzen the Devil must rise betimes: Go also early to the Fish-market, and late to the Shambles, for Fish and Guests quickly stink. Concerning thy clothes, or coverings of thy body, if thou wilt live healthful, make thy self an old man betimes, leave not thy furs till the Galileans come, viz.

It is a good rule, let me go warm, and let the world laugh at me. There's another rule, keep thy feet dry, and thy head hot, and for the rest live like a beast, viz. Concerning the parts of the body, take notice that the eyes being not well are to be cur'd with the elbow, viz. Know also that touching the Gout the Physician is blind. Touching Marriage, the saying of the Marquesse of M. Touching Doctor Diet, who predominates much over humane health, 'tis a general rule, that he who eats much eats but little. The Italian saith, that to preserve health, one must make three meals a day, one good, one bad, and another midling one; who eats well, and drinks well, doth what he ought to do; but whether you dine well or ill, be sure to drink thrice.

The milk told the wine, welcome friend; It is a wholesome precept, who will live healthful, let him dine sparingly, and sup betimes. Touching flesh, a Kid of a moneth, and a Lamb of three are best; for Eggs, one is scarceness, two are gentleness, three valour, and four are knavery. They say that if the Country-man knew the goodness of a hen in January, he would not leave one in his roost-house: Goats milk, Cow butter, and Sheeps cheese are best, but that cheese is best which comes from a misers hand: Young men are allowed to eat more then others, for a growing youth hath a woolf in his belly; therefore 'tis said, who from an old man steals his supper, doth him no wrong, because he who doth not sup hath no need of the Physician; Therefore if thou hast a mind to dye, eat rosted mutton at night, and go to sleep: Hereunto may be added, if thou desirest ill food, eat a rosted hare.

He who eats Pilchers in May, shites out the bones in August : And he who eats mushrumps in April, let him provide week and wax, viz. There is no broth like that of the juyce of Flint, viz. Touching fruit and garden-herbs, observe that new bread and grapes paint young maids, and takes away wrinkle from old folks. One olive is gold, two silver, three brass; If you will have a good bit, eat a peel'd Medlar. The Pear which cryes Rodrigo is not worth a rush. Others say, that the woman and the Pear which is silent are the best.

But after melon wine is a felon; let there be salt withall, for the French man will tell you again, 'tis a banquet for the Devil where there is no salt. Touching Fennel and Rue, there be two notable Proverbs, viz. A hedge doth last three years, a dog three hedges, a horse three dogs, a man three horses, a Stag three men, an Elephant three Stags. No more now, but that wishing you all health and gladness, I rest from my very bowels, your greatest servant, for although I am but little, I would be a Giant to serve you.

Con lo que Pedro adolece, Sancho sana. Quien deve a Pedro, y paga a Andres, que pague otra vez. Dos Iuanes, y un Pedro hazen un Asno entero.

De cornada de ansaron guarde Dios mi coracon: Quiere dezir, de las escrituras de los letrados que traen pleytos.

Qual era Dios para Mercader? Entiende se de una hija que su padre queria casar contra su voluntad. Rogamos a Dios por Santos, mas no por tantos. Muchos componedores cohonden la novia; Por que do ay muchos pareceres suele auer desorden. Si quieres dar palos a tu muger, pidele al sol a bever. Bezerilla mansa mama a su madre, y la agena: La glosa es, que los benevolos y comedidos con todos hallan cabida. Desque veo a mi Tia, muerome de azedia, desque no la veo muerome de desseo. La glosa es muy clara contra apostadores. Don Lope, ni es miel, ni hiel, in vinagre, ni arrope.

Este refran se refiere al amor grande que los padres tienen a sus hijos. Este refran se refiere a los cortesanos, en los quales verguenca demasiada, y pusilanimidad no es loable. Al hombre bueno no le busquen abolengo. Da dios almendras a quien no tiene muelas. Quiere dezir que riquezas, y mando vienen algunas vezes a quien no sabe repartir, ni sabe governar. Nacieron alas a la hormiga por su mal. El Infierno es lleno de buenas intenciones. Quiere dezir, que no ay pecador por malo que sea, que no tenga intencion de meiorar la vida, mas la muerte le sobreprende. Judios en Pascuas, Moros en bodas, Cristianos en pleytos, gastan sus dineros.

En casa del Official assoma la hambre, mas no osa entrar. Los muertos abren los ojos a los vivos. Esto quiere dezir, que la merced que se haze con ostentacion, y ruydo no es tan agradable.

The company of one is the company of none, the company of two is the company of God, the company of three is company, the company of four is the Devils company.

One Take is worth two I will give thee. Who owes unto Peter and payes Andrew, let him pay another time. If the tall were valiant, the little man patient, and the red loyal, all the world would be equal. A husband behind the fire as bad as the mother, viz. I go where no Pope or Emperour can send their Embassador.

To stool. Praying to God, and driving the plow, viz. Who riseth late must trot all the day, viz. Who hath a hundred, and owes a hundred and one, need not fear; who hath a hundred and one, and owes one hundred and two, I recommend him to God.

W Hen you have cast an eye upon this Letter which goeth stuff'd with all Proverbs, old Motts, and Adages, whereof some were used in the time of high bonnets, when men used to wipe their noses on their sleeves, for want of a napkin, you will judge perhaps, that the Author hath some strange freaks, or quinombroms in his noddle, that he hath quicksands, or Mercury, or rather one quarter of the Moon in his pericranium; But you Sir, that have a head so well timbred, will, I presume, passe another judgement.

The report is rife, that you have a design to travell, and range abroad for some time, and particularly to make the turn of France : If you are fixed in such a resolution, I pray give leave to an old soker, one that is well salted in the world, and knoweth more then how to eat his bread, one that hath pissed in many Snowes, to give you some few Mots of advice touching the Genius of that Countrey. For matter of conversation, you shall find there, more then any where else, as many heads, so many several humours, and caprichios, as if most of the people had eaten of the white Hinde, or of the mad Cow being impatient of peace any longer then they are recovering the ruines of the former war: But every where, you must take the people as they be, and the season as it is: Above all, observe this short worded Rule, Heare, see, and hold thy peace, if thou wilt live in peace; for a slip of the toe is better then that of the toung, and the Spaniard will tell you that when the mouth is shut the flies cannot enter.

You shall meet also there with debosh'd youngsters, who use to eat their Corn in the green blade, and to burn their candles at both ends; 'Tis a maxime amongst them, that one cannot be a compleat Gentleman, untill he hath been five times in Cornelius tub; For there, the stoutest of them will kneel to the distaff: Take heed of companions of that gang, yet treat them with civil Language, for fair words never blister the tongue: By all means lend them no money, for when you lend you are a cousin-german, but when you [Page] demand it again, you are the son of a whore; you shall verifie it there as well as in England, who lendeth to his friend exposeth himself to a double hazard, viz.

Mor [ The Countrey and people of France are given to all kind of jollities, and divertisements, There you shall meet with boon companions, the Rogers of the good time, who will be as merry as Crickets, or Mice in malt: You must not be of such a dull Saturnin humour, as not to jovialize sometimes with such, and with a cup of good liquor to chace away all care, and cumber, for one ounce of mirth, is better then a whole pound of melancholy.

If you have a mind to entertain a Lacquay, you shall find enough in that Countrey, but take heed of choosing one who is too Officieux, for he is a Lacquay for the Devil who doth more then he is commanded. During your absence, if there be any thing imaginable wherein I may steed you, I will employ green and dry, I will set my five sences on work to serve you; for I am from the center of my heart.

This Proverb is taken from a Droll called Robin who lived in Paris, and is meant of one who impertinently makes mention of something that his fancie runs upon, having nothing else in his mouth.

This Proverb grew up first in the town of Troy in Champany, where this John Colot lived, who was an Artizan, and a good fellow, and had commonly at his girdle a sheath, wherein there were three or four knives, all of little value, and having some fault or other, as one having the point broke, the other hacked on the edge, the other blunted, the other did not cut at all; And hence did arise this Proverb, which is properly spoken of things, whereof there is no great choice, as also of men that are of little value.

We are taught by these words, that oft times the good opinion and judgement which we have of some persons are grounded more upon common report then upon Truth it selfe, in so much that the reputation is more then the thing it selfe; And it is found that there are many whom the vulgar cry up to be wise, learned, and valiant, and adorned with other Vertues, yet they have nothing of all these three if one should pry narrowly unto them.

One called Martin having lost his Asse in the Fair, it happened that another was found which had been also lost, the Iudge of the place was of that opinion that that Asse should be restored to Martin, but he who had him in his possession, desired the Iudge to ask Martin of what colour his Asse was, who having answered, that he was all gray, he was put by his claim, because there was a black hair found in the Asse's tail.

This Proverb is borrowed from horses, to whom the best usage they can have besides oats and hey is to give them good store of fresh straw for their Litter; And by this similitude, it may be spoken of those that are at their ease, and have all things to their hearts desire.

By this Proverb we are taught, that all things in this world come to an end, as there is no day ever so long, but hath its declination. Use is made of this Proverb, when one is mounted up to the highest degree of his fortune; For the nature of the Pie is, to build her nest upon the highest trees that she can choose. The different nature of things require that some be managed one way, and some another; There are some things that may be broken on the knee, as stickes of dry wood; There are other things that require the knife, or hatchet, as green osiers, and all other wood while it is sappy, and green; Of this kinde are puddings which cannot be broken properly, but with a knife; Now [Page 27] Now, this Proverb teacheth, that in all our actions we cannot arrive to that which we pretend, but by such means that are proper thereunto.

It is well known, that from all times it was ordained to pay dimes or tithes unto the Lord, which was the tenth part of our earthly increase; This was kept so holy, that every one used to leave upon the field the tenth sheaf: Now, it happened that some prophane persons made of purpose some kinde of sheaves wherein there were no grains, wherewith they payed their tithes: Which gave occasion to this Proverb, and it may be applyed to any person of an ill Conscience, whether towards God, or man, whereof there were never more then now adayes, thank the long Parliament.

By these words is meant a gross fellow ill taught, and uncivil, such as they commonly are who are of a low degree, whose ordinary food is Bacon and Beef. A Haubergeon in times past was a kind of armour, which was [Page 28] made of the same stuff as we now make our coats of male which use to be made of small rings of iron, or [ This Proverb teacheth us, that to entertain our selves in this world, 'tis not enough to be wise, and learned, but we must employ our care and diligence in having a hand upon the work: the Proverb is taken from the Fox, [ T Hey say commonly that Running waters are the cleerest, and those of the Brook farr more then they of a standing Bog; In like manner the Spirits of those who travel up and down the world, and by their motions apply themselves to the study of Men, become thereby more cleer, acute, and subtile.

It is also observed among Vegetables, that according to the Proverb the best oignons are those which are transplanted; Therefore I highly approve of the resolution you have to cross the Alpes, and afterwards the Apennin hill, the chinebone of Italy. In Italy you shall meet with many cunning Rooks that have more doublings in them then a Cabage; Therefore take heed of associating with such, specially to fall a gaming whereunto the Italians are extraordinarily addicted for they say that gaming doth gnaw one to the very bone.

Being entred Lombardy, you shall see Milan the Great, so call'd as well for her strength, as for her bigness, whence sprung the Proverb, Milan can talk, and Milan can do, yet she cannot turn water into wine; In those quarters take head of a Lombard bit, viz. Thence you will pass to the Venetian Dominions, and among other the Noble Citty of Vicenza deserves to be saluted, for they say that Vienza hath more Counts and Cavaliers, then Venice hath Gondolleers: Thence you may direct your cours to Padua, called the chief residence of Hippocrates, and thence to Venice, where they say one may see an impossibility in an impossibility; there you may kiss Neptunes spouse, for Venice is called so, though some would have her to be a Concubine to the Turk: The Venetians they say are hard to be pleased, if the Proverb be true that there are foure difficult things, viz.

To make a bed for a Dogg, to roast an Egg well, to teach a Florentine, and serve a Venetian; Being there, you shall do well to visite the Arsenal, one of the Grandezas of the world for its strength, whence sprung the saying, that the whole Arsenal of Venice is not able to arm a Coward; In that melting Citty, take heed of Females, for a woman may be a woe to a man; The Courtezans of that Lake, are cried up for the fairest in the world, according to the Proverb, Vienza wine, Treviso tripes, Padua bread, and Venice whores; whence sprung another, Venice, O Venice, none thee unseen can prize, but who hath seen too much will thee despise.

It matters not much whether you see Calabria or no, the Territory of the Tarantolas, it being a sad barren Cuntrey, yet abounding with Nobles, In so much that somtimes three Marquesses may be seen eating Figgs upon one tree to drive away hunger. Among other things, you may observe in Naples and Milan the affection that the peeple bear to the Spanish, and French, where both the one and the other use to say, that they would be content to see all the Spaniards in Italy hung up with Frenchmens gutts; whence you way judge who is best beloved. But to wind up the threed of this coorse letter; I hope, that after your return, it will not be verified of you, that an Englishman Italionat is a Devill Incarnat, much less that you will be of the number of those who go out Masters, and come back Clarks in the point of Knowledge.

H Ealth being the most precious jewel that Nature hath in her Cabinet, I recommend unto you three Doctors for the maintenance thereof, viz. Touching the second Doctor, which concerns the government of the body, 'tis a great truth, that a little labour is much health; 'tis good to walk till blood appear in the cheeks, and not sweat on the brow. Touching Sleep, who is the King of Repose, sleep in the day when thou wilt, and in the night as much as thou canst; make night of night, and day of day, then thou maist sing welladay: But he who desires to sleep soundly, let him buy the boulster of one who died in debt.

Moreover, dine with little, and sup with lesse, sleep high, and thou wilt live long; But take heed of sleeping on the shadow of a Wallnut-tree: Besides, 'tis good to rise early, for he who will couzen the Devil must rise betimes: Go also early to the Fish-market, and late to the Shambles, for Fish and Guests quickly stink.

The Italian saith, that to preserve health, one must make three meals a day, one good, one bad, and another midling one; who eats well, and drinks well, doth what he ought to do; but whether you dine well or ill, be sure to drink thrice. Touching drink, drink water like an oxe, and wine like [Page] King; Water hath three excellent vertues, for it neither makes one sick, nor puts one in debt, nor makes a widower; yet cold water and hot bread never made good belly: After the fig water, and after the pear wine; a jadish bit also requires a spur of wine, but wine that stood all night is not worth a rush.

The milk told the wine, welcome friend; It is a wholesome precept, who will live healthful, let him dine sparingly, and sup betimes. Touching flesh, a Kid of a moneth, and a Lamb of three are best; for Eggs, one is scarceness, two are gentleness, three valour, and four are knavery.
