THE DOCTOR,

&c.

There is a kind of physiognomy in the titles of books no less than in the faces of men, by which a skilful observer will as well know what to expect from the one as the other.

PRELUDE OF MOTTOES.

"Αγε νύν, ώ-καρδία "απελθ' εκείσε,

- ειπούσαττ' αν αυτή σοι δοκή, τόλμησον, ίθι, χώρησον, άγαμαι καρδιάς.

ARISTOPHANES.

Je vas de nouveau percer mon tonneau, et de la traicte, laquelle par deux precedents volumes vous est assez cogneuë, vous tirer du creux de nos passetemps epicenaires un galant tiercin, et consecutivement un joyeux quart de sentences Pantagruelliques. Par moy vous sera licite les appeller Diogeniques. Et peur n'ayez que le vin faille.--Autant que vous en tireray par la dille, autant en entonneray per le bondon. Ainsi demourera le tonneau inerpuisible. Il a source vive et veine perpetuelle. RABELAIS.

The wholesom'st meats that are will breed satiety
Except we should admit of some variety.

In music, notes must be some high, some base.
And this I say,

these pages have intendment,
Still kept within the lists of good sobriety,
To work in men's ill manners good amendment.
VOL. III.
