In tyme of pestilence also it is good for everie man to abstayne from
unmeasurable drinkinge and drunckennes, but to drinke moderately
to allaye thirst and noe more. And he who drinkes and
waters viz. [Eysen] mixed with vinegre, water of barrage, of endife,
of lettuce, of violetts, of roses, scabioius, [cormentill], [dircanum]
myngled by even portions or druncke by them selves are verie good

for them that are of a colericke complexion, for they are hotter and
dryer then others are. It is verie contagious alsoe to come into
corrupt ayres in the morninge, before one taketh ayre of the fyre.
Drinkinge gutteres, uncleare standinge waters, draughtes and other

and therfore yf any tumor or [batche] be ther it is a signe that the hearte
hath sent his contagion thither

The clensinge place of the liver is the flankes and therfore yf
ther appeare any matter in the [share] [besides] the privaties then it appeareth
that the infection is sent thither from the liver

throate, and therfore yf any swellinge or [batche] doe ther appeare it is evident
the infection comethe from the Brayne. Now of the ___ ___ ___
