{The querent}

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 2r>

<Unidentified Hand B>The first chapiter sheweth of Certain Questions that are to be asked of the ty, that commeth with the vrin. or asketh the question for the sick:/

¶4904When any man or woman cometh vnto thee for himselfe, or for any that is sick or diseased, whether they bring the state of the sick or noe, it is not materiall, you shall following our Practice and Exience demand of the commer these Questions following. vz.

¶4905The Name of the ty for whome they come, his Christian Name and Surname.

¶4906Secondly you shall demaund his age as nere as they cā guesse.

¶4907Thirdly whether the sik bodie did send them or noe, or did consent to their comming or noe, for herin lyeth hidden all the secret of Arte, and the Mysterie of Physicall Iudgement to know his diease and the Cause therof.

¶4908For often tymes it falleth out, that a Man is so sick that his minde is not on the physician, to send to know what diseaze he hath. {illeg} but som one els, that is about him or of his kindred or frend, desirous to know the state of the man, sendeth out to the physician.

¶4909In such a case let the Physicion be wise, and macke diligent inquiry, who was the cause of his comming.

¶4910If the sick ty did bid him come or bid anie to send out for him, Then the first house which is the Angle of ye East shall be the Asscendent of the Question, for the sick. for life. and for ye Urin, because he sent, he did know of ye commīg of ye Urin, or Messenger himself.

¶4911But if ye Messenger say the sike man did not send me nor consenteth therevnto, then it is to be demaundeth|th|. who was the cause of his comming, either his father, mother, Sister or Brother, Vncle or Aunt, or his Sonn or Daughter or ye Wife of the Sick, or the Housband of the sike. For euerie of these haue seuerall Ascendents, and according |to the| |causer| {illeg}|o|f the Question, so shall you seeke the Asc: of ye Question, as it is more plainly showed, in theyr ticular chapters after wards.

The 2. Chapter showeth the follie of Idiots & shallow witted fellowes, more scrupulous then wise./

¶4912Manie there be in ye world of Idiots, Gibers and shallow witted fellowes, that be more scrupulous then wise, more Nice in their points and sophisticall then learned in theyr actions. They are gerate {sic} Clearcks, but haue but little witt and lesse vnderstanding, according to the saying of the philosopher, The greatest Clarks are not the wisest men, yet they would be accounted wise whan their Actions, many tymes show that they are not so wise, as they should be, or at least as they would be accounted. These men and such like I know will sey vnto me many tymes behind my back, as well as they haue some tymes sayd vnto my face. Why should this Phantasticall Fellow demaund such foolish Questions, Is it Materiall to know the Name of the sick, or is there any differe|nce| in Names, or is ther any thing to be knowen by once Name? Or in the Age of the ties? Or is it to any purpose whether the sike bodie doth send dim self or no? Cometh not all to one end, Or will not the Iudgemt be all one? To which I answer and say, No Sir, it is not one. Your reason Sir sayth another; and my Reason Sir is this, And first to ye Name, because that thou yt demandest these Questions shalt know, that I do not aske the Name for Nought, thou shalt know how much avaylable it is vnto thee that will fesse Art as I do to sit and give Iudgem{t} to all commers. Some come as well to try a mans cunning or skill some tyme as well as for the sicke, some bring a Mans urin & say it is a Maydes or Womans, some bring a Maydes Urin and say e|or| Womans and say it is a Mans, some will not sticke to bring a beasts water, and say it is a Mans or Womans, some cast out the vrin they are send withall and pisse in it themselfes, and sometymes they breack the glasse by the way, and buy a New & tacke the horse pisse, or Mares pisse, or their owne, and so licke Deceiptful knaues and Cogging mates they come to ye <MS Ashmole 363, f. 3r> physicion, thinking to deceiue the physician, But because these knauish people shall not deceiue me, as sometymes they haue done, as hereafter I will shew you, Therfor I say I aske they Name of the ty, his Christian Name and his Sur Name, for by the Name I know tly whether it be a Mans or Womans water, but if He or She whatsoeuer tell me a false Name, and say it is Iohn, when it is Ioane, and If I giue iudgement then vpon Iohn, and he say my Iudgement is false, then I say he is a false knaue for telling me a false name. And ye fault is in such fraudulent fellowes fooles as themselues, for they came with a lye, and they had an Answer to a lye, for would they looke for to reape better seede then they did sowe, a man can not gather grapes of thornes, nor figs of thistles, Neither can they haue a {trew} true answer to a false demaunde, For ye philosopher sayth Ois Questio aut propositio habet suum priū Respōsū. And Aristotle sayth A fine uniuscujus intentionis oritur principium. The beginning of euerie thing doth spring from the end of his intention. And the end of these fellowes intent is to deceiue the Physicion, and therupon he Counterfets a lye and begins first with a lye, and tells the physician a false name, thinking to deceiue the Physician but in ye end deceiues himselfe, and may be sold for a foole at Chering crosse; Although this former saying of Aristot: may be better applyed to the searching of the Φilosophers stone, & there for I say, for this Cause I aske the Name. And again I aske the Name for an other Cause also and that is for because I will not forgett, what euerie once diseaze is and what counsel I haue giuen them, for hauing their Names on my booke, I can allways tell thereby, what thyr diseases be, and what counsel I haue giuen them, For suppose there comes to me this day 3. 4. 5. or 6, 10. or 20., and to Morrow as Many more & the Next day as manie more, some of them will take physic. <MS Ashmole 363, f. 3v> and some will take none, some tymes again, the tyme doth not serue to giue physick, and sometymes men, or ye ties haue no tyme to tacke it, because of necessarie businesse and they come again. 2. 3. or 4 dayes or a weeke after/

¶4913If {illeg}|I| had not their names, and disease on my booke, how could I tell what their diseases were, or what to doe vnto them, or what to giue them, but so soone as they tell me again their Names I find it one my bou|o|ck, there do I see the cause of their diseaze, and how ther|y| are troubled & what I must doe vnto them, els should I forget as many doe, and soe giue them chalek for cheese, and so haps giue them that wch will doe them more harme then good, for many there be that haue as Large consciences as Lawyers, that cares not, so they are well payed and haue their fees how their matter goeth forwards, but for such Lawyers and such physicians hell openeth her mouth wide and it were no greate matter, If the world were well ridde of all such Caterpillers of the Commonwe\a/alth, for the one Makes Rich men poore, but they neuer make poore men rich, and the other makes whole men sick, but they neuer make sick men whole, the one consumeth a mans felicitie, & the other a mans Libertie, and both a mans wealth the more pitty, yet who so bold as blind Bayard. for they are Iohannes fac totum, vz vbis but non factis/ what is it that they will not take vpon them to do? yea they will sweare and stare, & mise golden mountains to couer their Ignorance withall; to cosen men of their monny, but when it cometh to the act, they then will giue them they know not what, but so that they giue them something they thinck it is good enough, & so they try experience vpon mens bodies, when they neither know the Estate of mens bodies, nor the Cause of their Diseases, and then giue them such medicins as worck so extraordinar extemely, that nature not being able to beare the force therof, or because it worketh on a contrarie cause, that manie tymes through blind Ignorance and follie they turne vp their Heeler and bidd men good morrow at midnight.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 4r>

¶4914Of such fellows we haue to manie in England, butt their Names of Doctourshipe doth couer their knaueries when plein Exience showeth their ignorance, & yet they think they may kill men by authority, but yet I will them to remember this that they must all come to iudgment for it, therfor we say there are three things, nay rather three manner of sons not tolerable in a Commōwealth a Lewde vnlearned Priest, a Lawyer whose conscience is Like a broad Cart way, and an Unskilfull and Ignorant Physician, for thorough these three many decay and come to nought, for thorough the Lewdness of the Priest manie soules go to the Diuel; thorogh the greedy coueteousnesse of the Lawyers many are vndone, and {tow} thorough the Ignorance of the physicion many bodies come to their graues before thier tyme.

¶4915Secondly towching the name I will here shew vnto you certain names that be common as wel to men as to women, at least in ye Vulgar pronunciation, of these which know not ye true reason and right originall of the Name, And these Names are doubtfull, & may decieue thee, therefore in such names be plain with them, to aske them whether it be a man or a woman except thou canst gather it by their talck, as often tyme thou mayest, the names are these. Adrian Constancye Collet Bennet Dennys Iackman Frauncis Fortune Harman Iiles Ioyce Luke Phillip. Siluester. Swythin Vincent Zaccharie Clement

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 4v>
Of the Age:

¶4916Now I will showe you why I aske the age of ye tie, for some will say why should he aske the age of the ty, Is there any thing in ye age, or is there any difference of diseases in respect of the age, To wch I answer yea Sir there is, for there is as Much difference in ye age, as there is betweene a child and an old bodie, for children are subject to the redd gumme, to wormes, to the small pox, to measels, to scabbes, etc: which old folcks are not./ Again, young maydes are subject to ye greene siknes, which old wœmen nor children are not, old men are subject to the gowte which children or yong men \folckes/ are not or verie seldome and we see by exience, that manie diseazes come in children, that come not in middle aged nor old folck, and many come in Middle age, that come not in children nor old age, and many come in old age that come not in Children nor middle age, because in tyme in respect of age, the heauens \humors/ do alter, and strenght and complexion {illeg} and so much for that./

Of the comming of the messenger with consent or without consent of the sik and of the falsnesse of Urine:

¶4917Thirdly some In like manner will say again, why should he aske who sent the Urin or Messenger, or was the primary cause therof, or whether ye sicke ty consented therevnto or no, Is it any matter who sent, or whether the sick did know therof or noe? To this I Answer yea Sir, for the philosoph. sayth; mens hominis movetur sdm cursus cælorum, the mind of man is moved according to the Curse of heauen. And I say that the Course of heauen doth not all wayes fit to aske a question, for as the Course of heauens is allways running, some to one thing some to an other, and when it seemeth to the motion of one mans mind in one thing, an other mans mind is <MS Ashmole 363, f. 5r> moued the same instant to an other thing according to his constellation, vnder which he was borne. So that a man can not move a qstion, neither of himselfe, nor of any other, so that it haue a Radix or a deepe Impression in ye Resolutions thereof, but when soeuer he makes the Question, the heauens do fit to shew the truth therof, for he shall haue no power to do it, till his mind do aggree with the Course of heauen, If he aske it in a good Intent. And therefor I say, when the sick mans mind doth concurre with the Course of heauen by a speciall desire that he hath to knowe the state of his bodie or siknese then shall he moue the Question or send out the messengr to that Intent, And then is the Asc: taken by the first house, because it is the sick mans intent and demaund to know. But because the sik mans mind some tymes is not thereto by reason of his sicknesse, for that it is so tediouse, or for that he hath little Credit in ye physicion, or lesse in his art, not because Physik is euill, if it be well used or well giuen, for physick of it selfe ly is good, but the best things may be abused, and so may physick, For some complections can not abyde physick, espescialy women of a High complection, or men verie chollerick in 3 degrees of Nature; Or els because in these Dayes they see that many physicians for want of art & knowledge, haue dealt so euill with them or their friends in former tymes making their bodies Apothecaries shops & consume their substance and wealth, and use so much Physick vnto them, that they bring them from better to worse And where before they were a little out of quyet, they macke them sik, and where they be a little sicke, they detinewe them so, till in the end they day dye, so that more in a yeare often perish thorrough the follie of Ignorant Phisicions (for want of art and knowledge, to know the Cause of the disease) then other wise, for the maxime of physick is sublata causa tollitur effectus. He sayth not take away ye diseaze but the Cause of the diz|s|eaze

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 5v>

¶4918But I demaund of you whow they can make3 an Effect, when they know not the cause, will they say we looke in his urin, why I answer, you were as good in respect to looke in the vrinall case, for galen, Hippocrates, Avicenna and all the ancient philosophers do vtterly condemne a urin saying urina est meretrix. the Urin is a strumpet, false and may deceiue any man, And Iohes Albiosus sayth in his 33. demonstration. Urinæ est iudicium fallax potest nam tingi cibos, calidititatem hepatis, renum, iram, per exercitium, et per lapsum humoris nigri, quam ob rem judicaretur propter choleram, & varias commixtionis incognitas quantitates, aliquando est defect in sanguine, & repletione venarum, expellentium choleram ad fundum stomachi, mordicatus nititur eam expellere. The Iudgment of the Urin is deceiptfull for the Urin may alter his ch colour by reason of the meate that one eateth, or by heate of the Liuer, or Reynes, or through angr, or much exercise of the Bodie, or by falling downe of some burned cholerick humor, whereby a man may Iudge Melancholi much heate to abound in the boddie, Or it may chaunge by reason of the vnknowen queantities of diuers commixed humors, for somtymes there is som defect in the bodie by repletion of the veines expelling choller to the depth of the stomack, which being bitten endeuoreth to expell and driue it foorth, Again we know by exience, that much fasting doth alter the colour of the Urin and mackes it loocke exceeding redd, enflamed, because of the heate of digestion and much Circulation; how then can any man giue a Iust judgement of the cause of the any mans diseaze by the Urin which doth alter his colour by many occasions. Again we haue seene our selfes the Urin of one looking exceeding black deadly. when there hath bene no danger at all; also we haue seene the Urin of one, that hath bene verie sicke, which hath bene excellent cleare and of a right Amber colour, and yet the tie hath dyed within 48. howers after, What credit then I pray you should <MS Ashmole 363, f. 6r> one giue to Urin, or to these Phisicions, which judge of ye cause of mens diseazes only by the Urin? Some will say, we Iudge by the puls, If they say so, I say that the Pulse is also false and utterly condemned of the ancients And Ioes Albiosus sayth Pulsus quo nos decipere pt caliditatem, &c. The pulse also may decieue vs thorough much heate, and straightnesse of the passages and some tymes through feare. And we haue knowen by our exience that the pulse hath kept a due course to 5 or 7 and hath broken as at 8 and hath begon again to hold till 13 or 14 and then hath broken again, and some tymes the tie dath ben in greate danger & somtymes in no daungr at all, and some some tymes the pulse hath kept a just Course in one hand, and in the other hath ben no pulse at all

¶4919Some may now say we will judge by the egestion, why yt is vtterly condemned also for a man can Iudge nothing of that as concerning the Cause of one disease wherupon Ioannes Albiosus sayth Aliquando Egestiones uidentum phlegmatice & tamen peccat cholera caliditatem aientem {ponis} & fit caloris digestiui Resolutio &c. Some tymes the Egestions doe seeme phlegmatick, yet choller doth offend by reason of heate opening the pores and there is resolution by digestion of heate, Therfor to conclude of all these suficiall matters, as the Region, the Regiment, the tyme of the yeare, the Complexion, the pulse, the Urin, the sidge, the sweate, the rednesse of the chicks cheekes, or Lipps, the hollownesse of the Eyes, and all such old wiues fables, they are as false to lay any ground theron for to know the cause of the disease therby, and it is the cause of any {sic} \eueri/ diseaze that we seeke, and that we ought to know, for Art sayth Tacke away the cause./

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 6v>

¶4920Some again will say we talked with the sick ty & he tells vs the whole state of his bodie and disease, I graunt that it is good in dangerouse diseazes to se the sick and to talcke with him, and to take all the Informations you can, or that he or these that be about him can give you. But what what can he or she say vnto you, They can say haps they haue a burning feuer, or they vomit much or scowre, or that they haue much paine in their head, stomack and back, or that they haue the strangurie, Goute or palsey or atche in their boanes, or the pox, or that they cannot sleepe or eate their meate or such like, but what is all this to the purpose to a man of art, he can cure him neuer the sooner for all this, because he knoweth not the Cause of this Distemature, for the sike although he can tell the Physicion his diseaze and paine, yet he can not tell him the cause of his paine, which is the cheefest thing, and the ownly thing wch a physicion must and ought to know, or els all his labour and cunning is in vain, for Physick sayth allwayes take away the Cause, it sayth not take away the disease but take away the Cause, and the effect is eradicated But how can any take away the caus Cause when they know not what it is, nor by all the skill and cunning they haue can they learne, for the Urin, the Pulse, the si|e|dge, the sweate the Complexion, no nor the sick themselues can not tell them the Cause thereof, Alas how simple are physicians then that will take one them to minister any medicin to owne that is sick for to Cure him of his disease, when he knowes not the Cause therof, but giueth his Medicins at all adventures, and haps giues him that which is cleane contrarie to his diseaze, and so mackes him worse then he was, as for exemple, I will reherse the Circumstance of a Gentlwoman here in London, that was Frantike, a Certain Dr Iuthe Cittie, whome she had|th| some affiance In was called to see her by her husbands curment & to remedie her <MS Ashmole 363, f. 7r> of her diseaze, he made no doubts therof, and tocke on him the matter, and administred vnto her for the space of 6 weeks, but the woman was neuver the better, and the which tyme it was my chaunce to come home, hauing bene out of the towne, The Goodman hearing that I was come home, [because once before (through Gods grace) I had set her in her right minde when she was in the same taking:] he send for me, I cam to her and met her doctor there, & had conference with him about her, and he demaunded of me this question, what is the Reason Mr Forman that for these 6 weeks space I can not set this woman In her right wits, and you did once set her in her wits before when she was in this taking, and I haue tryed all the wayes I can deuise & can not do it     I answered him in this manner, the Reason is because you do not know the cause of her frensy, And her answereth|d| again, I suppose the cause to be, by reason of Melancholy humors in her matrix mixed with her mēstrues and I told him noe, quoth he Let me try my skill once more, do quoth I, he prouided his Medicine, quoth I, when will you giue it her, at such a tyme quoth he, then quoth I. the tyme is euill for this diseaze, and again she will not take it, why quoth he? I know a reason to the Contrarie quoth I; when the tyme came he would haue giuen her the medicin, but he could not make her \to/ take it, when he saw that, Now quoth he let me see what you can doe, the next day night following I led layd a thing to her head, and the day following she was reasonably well come to her selfe but not well, then I did so once more the night following again, and she was well thanks be to God, So that in two dayes we stopt the cause of her diseaze, which they could not do in 6. weekes because they did mistake the Cause.      Here you may see the skill of such Doctors as work without art.

¶4921This same Doctor as well as he is accounted of, it was my chance to met him at Gentlemans house in ye Countrie whose only Daughter was sik, and I told the Gentleman that it was but a follie, to bestow any cost on her she would dy within 6 dayes following, and again I told him that he should giue her no medicin, if they did she would be Frantick within 6 howers after <MS Ashmole 363, f. 7v> But this learned Dr comming thither gaue her a Glyster, and the Mayden waxed Frantick within 6 howers, so that 4 women hath much adoe to Rule her, the next day her Father sent for me again, where I met this Namles Doctor and In conference about the Gentlewoman he demaunded of me, what I thought of her, quoth I, she will dye within 3. dayes except God giue her longer life, as he did Ezechia the King, why should you say so quoth he, and I see no signe of Death on her, are not (quoth he) her eyes quick and her lips red, and a good coulour in her face and a reasonable good pulse, but he knew not that she was Frantick, and that her coulour came with striuing; what quoth I doest thou tell me of her eyes, of her lips, her nose or of her tayle, I tell thee she will day dye, for art saith she will dye. O quoth the Dr you are one of them that is not free of our house, you stand much vpon art, of which we haue no skill. So it seemeth quoth I, it were better for your Credit, and also those with whome you deale with all, if you hath skill in art as you haue not, but your owne talke quoth I, sheweth your Ignorance, and such blind Drs as you are, quoth I, doe discredit art and your profesion and make mens bodies Apothecaries shopps, & then to bestowe their monneyes idly to maintayne your follies and to kill themselues by your foolish Doctrine.

¶4922This fellowe quoth the Dr to the Gentleman talkes he knowes not what, I will warrant your daghter Sir quoth he, do so quoth I, and if she ouerliue fryday next, I will neuer studie art, nore minister any phisick more, & with thayt I tocke my leaue and went my way and left this skillfull Dr there to Cure the Gentlewoman, and this was the Wednesday, and she Dyed|d| the Fryday after. This Iolly Dr shall yet be Name lesse for a season, because I will not alltogether shame him for he may be well ashamed of him selfe and of his howse wherof he is free, except he learnes better what belongeth to art, but of such Physicions Galen. octavo de Ingenio sanitatis capite 20 dicit |Quod| Medici Astrologiam ignorantes pejores sunt spiculatorib & Homicidis non cognoscentes necessaria resita ad medicinam./

¶4923Physicions that are Ignorant In Astrolgie are worse then Spiculators and menslayers for that they know not things necessarie belonging vnto physick.     And Eberhardus enveyghing against such and Lamenting the misery of ye tyme, wherin so manie vnlearned men do liue saith Heu miserandum Temp etc: O miserable tyme, now the tyme is come that there is scant one found among a hundered Physicians that know how to Iudge of mens diseases, or that can tell, what tyme medicin should be made, or when and what tyme it should be giuen, wheras it is most necessarie, aboue all things to obserue the tyme in giuing of medicin;/ And for myne own t, I know this and the Inhabitants of London and the Countrys adjoining can wittnesse the same, and some leærned men in this Land, that haue seene the exience thereof. That in one hower the Course of heauen a man will giue a Medicin shall cure a diseaze, that missing such a tyme, a man may giue a hundred medicins and not cure it, well sayd that wise Solomon therefor when he sayd, there was a tyme for all things. Ioes Tasner vpon his Canon on diseazes sayd|th| stultum hoc medicorum vulgus, quod nostro sæculo sic videm insolescere at impouere nobis purpura sua, cum sibi ab Authorib suis pceptum sciant, ut abs astrorum consilio nulli medicētur, & tam longè a medicina est, astrologiæ Ignarus est, vt non medic dici debeat, sed Impostor. |Which| may be well englished thus: Wee see in these our dayes the common sort of foolish physicions to waxe arrogant and prowde, colouring their bad deedes with smooth words and greate shewes, making manie beleeue the Moone is made of a greene cheese, and that Authors do say this and this, when they them selfes do verie well know, that their Authors do forbid them to deale or medle in Physick without Astrologie, for that none can be Cured, but by chaunce without the Counsel of the starres and knowledge in Astrologie and he that is Ignorant In Astrologie, is so fro far from the true knowledge of medicin and physick that he is <MS Ashmole 363, f. 8v> not worthie to be called a Phisicion but an Impostor or an Intruder. And Ioes Albiosus sayth that in his 39 proposition Cæli juvant Medicos ut Salutem ægrotis conferant.

¶4924But now to come to our former matter again, of which we spack afore towching the Cause of the diseaze for Example, Put the Case I take a threed or a string and tye it about my thomb or handwrest verie hard, and thereby my hand and arme doth swell much, I com to a Physicion, putting a glove vpon {sic} \on/ my hand that he can not see the string, whereith {sic} my fingr is bound which is the Cause of the swelling of my arme. I show myne arme to the physician, he administred many medicins to me, but all helpes not, because he findeth not the cause, but when he seeth the string, he taketh it away, and when it is gone myne arme and hand were well of them selues or with verie few medicins. The like is in Surgeons that take in hand to cure old sowres, Ulcers fistules, Cankers and other sores and woundes, they macke a greatest hearuest with a little corne, and keepe their patients long vnder their hands, and all for want of witt for they see not nor know not the Cause why the sore will not heale And then they use manie salues, and try manie exiences vpon them, making them worse then they were before, as for Example at my first commīg to London there was an Ancient Gentlewoman of 64 years of age that hath a Sore legg and was first taken in childbed, and she beare it 25. years, and she had spent aboue 200{ld}, as she and her husband both affirmed one Physicians and Surgeons, and could get no remedy, except she would haue her legg cutt off. This woman through the grace of God I cured in 5 weeks, and made her legg as sound and as small as it was in 30 yeares before, euen to her owne content, that afterward she went a broad lustely and well & when I had don she gaue me but 50ss. for my labour, yet I was contented therewith, because she did it willingly, and allwayes thankfull vnto me after.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 9r>

¶4925But you vnskilfull Surgeons I meruayle how you dare to take on you to cure such wounds & sores as you haue no skill in, you are horse leatches and no surgeons, that go on like blind Bayard, not regarding the end of your profession, your Credit nor honesty, nor the Slandering of arte, you are ennemis \both/ to your selfe and to all humain kind and Caterpillers to a common wealth, and more men are made lame and dismembred through your lewde Ignorāce and blind boldnesse, then would be other wise if you neuer meddleth with them, I merueil much how you should be good Surgeons, Seeing that art sayth. a man may be a good Physician, though he be no Surgeon.4 But he cannot be a good Surgeon except he be a good physicion, because the cheefest t of Surgerie consisted in Physic. to judge of the Cause, and to take the Cause away for if the accid acces of humors which fall to the sores and are the cause why they heale not be taken away then the sore soone healeth, good Dyet and skill obserued.

¶4926Again one is apprentice to a Barber Surgeon: 7. 8. 9. or 10. years, and in all that tyme his Mr healeth a sore fingr or some such simple matter, yet this fellowe so soone he is out of his yeares will say, he is a Notable Skillfull fellowe and will take vpon him to do any thing yea the greatest cure that is, and so worcke to find exience on the poore patient to his vtter vndoing, but because they haue eloquent termes and a few words of art they make men beliue they are braue and skilfull fellowes when their apparel on their back is more worth then all their cunning./ But remember this all yee Ignorant phsicions and vnskillfull Surgeons, that you must all come to Iudgement, and giue account for euerie finger, for euerie hand, and for euerie arme, legg and member that you haue cutt off, or causeth to be lost thorough your Ignorance, and for euerie one that hath Dyed through your follie./

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 9v>

¶5966 in in 3o beinge Dns ascend. and Dns 6e is unfortunate to his owne disease.

¶5967If Dns ascend. be stronge, and in his dignities and power, and Dns 6e weake, Then that sigill or image cureth all the diseases, of the planet that is Dns 6e when it was made.

¶5968And this knowe for certaine, that nature in the course of heauen, doth bringe forth naturally, all manner of creatours first created, in one place of the world or other and those things that men labour for with greate diligence and paine, to haue or make to growe, in one place, In another place of the world, the same hearbe, stone, fish, foull, plant or best doth growe or breed, and is brought forth by the course of heaven and natur naturally; as for in sample in Ingland wee desire to make to growe by arte oranges and Lemond trees, Almonds, olives and such like, and with much arte and industrie, wee make them growe and proper and to <MS Ashmole 363, f. 70v> beare fruite, and in spayne these trees growe naturally without anie greate industrie. Againe in spaine Rosmary is uery plentifull on the downes and here wee have much a doe to make them growe in gardens, euine so is it of other things, Accordinge to the constellation of heaven, and according to the Longitude, and Longitude, und{er} which the countrie or place is         and according to the influence of heaven planets and fixed starres that rull that contrie or place. Againe, wee seeke by arte, to ingraven in a stone the figure of some best, man, fish or fowle or some figure, carecte or sigill of a planet, to some entente and thereto wee observe the ascend the houer, the tyme, and in some other place or counterie wee find a stone that hath in it the same figure or caracte made therin by nature, that hath the same nature uertue and Influence for the which wee make it by arte.

¶5969And therefore I say this for conclusion, whatsoeuer a man desireth to doe or make by arte, in one place of the world in a particulare and specia{ll} tyme, to obteyne some uertue or power, the selfe some {sic} thinge & made created, effected, and done by nature, and influence of the heavens in some other place of the world, fit to that intent, as thus wee desire to make impresse or cut in a stone, the figure of a flieinge house, or dogge or beast. And in some other place or counterie as stone is found, that naturally hath the same figure in it.

¶5970Againe there is no Ringe, Lamin, sigill, ymage, pantakell, or seal, or such like either pressed, stamped, engraven etc or otherwise made, but it hath his vertue to good or euill, to some thinge or other, secundum majus or minus, at what time soever it is made either by day or night And the same uertue to good or euill doth endure, in that selfe some thinge ymage, Lamine or Ringe etc accordinge to his time of makinge some more, and some lesse, some longe time, and some shorter, the which you may finde out and trie, accordinge to the time the thinge was fullie made and finished and ended, by the figure of heaven in the finishinge <MS Ashmole 363, f. 71r> thereof, as in the birth of a child to knowe his day of death, so is it in a Lamin, Ringe or sigill or ymage to knowe his death, that is to say, when his vertue and effecte shall end, for the vertue of a Ringe or ymage or such like cannot endure perpetually, nor the vertue of any thinge ells made by arte, but it hath his time, and his time ended, his vertue ceaseth..

¶5971Therefore to knowe the vertue of any such figure, ymage, sigill or Ringe etc you shall take the figure of heaven of the instant time, when it is fullie compleate and finished; in respect of the workemanshipp of castinge or engravinge, impressinge or stampinge when the last letter is engraved, stamped or written, and not at the beginninge nor in the middle, but in the endinge when it hath his full worke, figure or carracts thereon, for otherwise it may be left unperfecte, after it is begunn and so not finished at all. As in a child that is borne, to knowe his day of death. So is it in any such Lamine, sigill, ymage or Ringe etc to knowe his death that is when his vertue and effecte will end, for the vertue therf|o|f cannot endure perpetually, and as it is in a child begotten, the time of his begettinge, that is when the seed falls into the Matrix, doth shewe the time of his birth, and the continuance thereof in the mothers wombe: and where it shall prosper and come to the birth or noe, or perishe before. And the instant of the birth sheweth the life and estate thereof in good and ill to the day of his death. So likewise, when a man beginneth to make a Ringe, or to engrave a sigill or Lamine, the figure taken at the first instant, when it is begunn, dothe shewe where it shalbe effected or spilte in the workinge, or left unperfect or perfected, and made on end of or no. And the juste time of ending thereof when the last letter is made, sheweth the vertue thereof, and how longe it shall endure, and keepe that vertue.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 71v>
Example.

¶5972I would engrave or caste a sigill of to good, and I begin it in hora when is in ascend. which is a directe ascend. and therein in ascend. and so doe continue workinge thereon till the hower of in in ascend. This sigill shall have the vertue of and because he was ended and complete under and and shall not have the vertue of in under which it was begunn, because the time was paste before it had his full forme, and was borne into the world.
