עמוד 248 - It may please your grace to understand that witches and sorcerers within these few last years are marvellously increased within your grace's realm. Your grace's subjects pine away, even unto the death ; their colour fadeth, their flesh rotteth, their speech is benumbed, their senses are bereft.

עמוד 162 - His life was gentle, and the elements So mix'd in him that Nature might stand up And say to all the world, 'This was a man!
עמוד 245 - Saw. I am dried up With cursing and with madness ; and have yet No blood to moisten these sweet lips of thine. Stand on thy hind-legs up. Kiss me, my Tommy ; And rub away some wrinkles on my brow. By making my old ribs to shrug for joy Of thy fine tricks.

עמוד 220 - Oh, says he, I have not seen my love these seven years:" there's a long cut ! When he comes to her again and embraces her, " Oh, says he, now methinks I am in Heaven;" and that's a pretty step! he that can get up to Heaven in ten days, need not repent his journey ; you may ride a hundred days in a caroch, and be farther off than when you set forth.
עמוד 198 - Whose blows have lam'd me, drop from the rotten trunk. Abuse me ! beat me! call me hag and witch ! What is the name, where, and by what art learn'd ? What spells, or charms, or invocations, May the thing call'd Familiar...
