He is mark'd like a Berry Mutton, who hath alwayes some scurf upon the nose, because the sheep there feed on time, not that they are mark'd with red oker. He went away with a nose foot long, viz. A Marchant who takes money without weighing, or telling it, viz. He is furnished with needle and threed, viz. The Germane hath his spirit at his fingers ends, because he is a good Artificer.

England the Paradice of women, the Purgatory of servants, and the Hell of horses. Snailes a [ As long as the stock bears stemmes, it never brancheth, viz. 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. 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.
