Side 35 - Monday came, all was well. Tuesday came, he not sick.
Side 35 - Lambeth with a very good report of the neighbourhood, especially of the poor, unto whom he was charitable. He was a person that in horary questions (especially thefts), was very judicious and fortunate ; so also in sicknesses, which indeed was his masterpiece. In resolving questions about marriage he had good success ; in other questions very moderate.
Side 37 - ... only you shall know your enemies and their malice, though they shall have no power over you. With this trick of wit, he allayed his fury, and got him quietly, about eight in the morning to the...
