CHAPTER VI. A. I.-P. 23.

SHOWING THAT AN AUTHOR MAY MORE EASILY BE KEPT AWAKE

BY HIS OWN IMAGINATIONS THAN PUT TO SLEEP BY THEM HIMSELF, WHATEVER MAY BE THEIR EFFECT UPON HIS READERS.

Thou sleepest worse than if a mouse should be forced to take up her lodging in a cat's ear; a little infant that breeds its teeth, should it lie with thee, would cry out as if thou wert the more unquiet bedfellow.

WEBSTER.

CHAPTER V. A. I.—p. 24.

SOMETHING CONCERNING THE PHILOSOPHY OF DREAMS, AND THE

AUTHOR'S EXPERIENCE IN AERIAL HORSEMANSHIP.

If a dream should come in now to make you afeard,
With a windmill on his head and bells at' his beard,
Would you straight wear your spectacles here at your toes,
And your boots on your brows and your spurs on your nose?

BEN JONSON.
