[1.1]   THE
[1.3]   MAISTER,
[1.4]   Teaching all his Scholers, of what age
[1.5]   |soeuer,the mo{st} ea{|si}e, {|sh}ort, and perfe{ct} order of
[1.6]   di{st}in{ct} reading,and true writing our Engli{|sh} tongue
[1.7]   that hath euer yet been knowne and
[1.8]   publi{|sh}ed by any.
[1.9]   And further al|so teacheth a dire{ct} cour|se,how any vnskilfull
[1.10]   per|son may ea{|si}ly both vnder{|st}and any hard engli{|sh} words, which they
[1.11]   {|sh}all in the Scriptures , Sermons, or el|sewhere heare or reade : and al|so bee
[1.12]   made able to v|se the |same aptly them|selues. And generally what|soeuer is nece|s­
[1.13]   |sary to be knowne for Engli{|sh} |speech: |so that he which hath this booke on­
[1.14]   ly,needeth buy no other to make him {fi}t, from his letters, vnto the
[1.15]   Grammar |schoole, for an apprenti|se, or any other his owne pri­
[1.16]   uate v|se, |so farre as concerneth Engli{|sh}. And therefore
[1.17]   is made not onely for children, (though the {fi}r{|st}
[1.18]   booke be meere childi{|sh} for them)but
[1.19]   al|so for all other e|specially that
[1.20]   are ignorant in the La­
[1.21]   tine tongue.

[1.22]   In the next page the Schoole-mai{|st}er hangeth forth his table, to the
[1.23]   view of all beholders, |setting forth |some of the chiefe
[1.24]   commodities of his profe{|ss}ion.

[1.25]   Deui|sed for thy |sake that wante{|st} any part of this skill,by Edmond Coote
[1.26]   Mai{|st}er of the Free-|schoole in Bury S.Edmond.

The Schoole-mai{st}er his


[2.1]     I Profe{|s|s}e to teach thee, that art vtterly
[2.2]     ignorant, to reade perfe{ct}ly, to write
[2.3]     truly, and with iudgement to vnder­
[2.4]     {|st}and the rea|son of our Engli{|sh} tongue
[2.5]     with great expedition, ea|se , and plea­
[2.6]     |sure.


[2.7]     I will teach thee that art vnperfe{ct}
[2.8]     in either of them, to perfe{ct} thy skill in
[2.9]     few dayes with great ea|se.


[2.10]   I vndertake to teach all my |scholers, that |shall be trayned vp for
[2.11]   any grammar |schoole,that they {|sh}all neuer erre in writing the true
[2.12]   orthography of any word truly pronounced: which what ea|se and
[2.13]   bene{fi}te it will bring vnto Scholemai{|st}ers, they be{|st} know : and the
[2.14]   |same pro{fi}t doe I o{ff}er vnto all other both men & women, that now
[2.15]   for want hereof are a{|sh}amed to write vnto their be{|st} friends : for
[2.16]   which I haue heard many gentlewomen o{ff}er much.

The preface
will {|sh}ew you
how this may
certainely and
ea|sely be done.

[2.17]   I a{|s|s}ure all Schoolemai{st}ers of the Engli{|sh} tongue,that they {|sh}all
[2.18]   not onely teach their |scholers with greater perfe{ct}ion : but al|so they
[2.19]   {|sh}al with more ea|se and pro{fi}t,and in {|sh}orter time teach a hundreth
[2.20]   |scholers,then before they could teach forty.


[2.21]   I hope by this plaine and {|sh}ort kinde of teaching to encourage
[2.22]   many to read,that neuer otherwi|se would haue learned. And |so
[2.23]   more knowledge will be brought into this Land, and moe bookes
[2.24]   bought, then otherwi|se would haue been.


[2.25]   I |shall ea|se the poorer |sort,of much charge that they haue been at
[2.26]   in maintayning their children long at Schoole and in buying many
[2.27]   Bookes.


[2.28]   Strangers that now blame our tongue of di{ff}icultie and vncer­
[2.29]   taintie, {|sh}all by me plainly |see and vnder{|st}and tho|se thinges which
[2.30]   they haue thought hard.

[IMAGE of A2v]


[2.31]   I doe teach thee,the {fi}r{|st} part of Arithmeticke,to know or write
[2.32]   any nomber.


[2.33]   By the pra{ct}i|se thereunto adioyned all learners {|sh}all |so frame &
[2.34]   tune their voyce, as that they {|sh}all truely and naturally pronounce
[2.35]   any kind of {st}ile eyther in pro|se or ver|se.


[2.36]   By the |same pra{ct}i|se Children {|sh}all learne in a Catechi|sme the
[2.37]   knowledge of the principles of true Religion, with precepts of ver­
[2.38]   tue and ciuill behauiour.


[2.39]   I haue made a part of a briefe Chronologie for pra{ct}i|se of rea­
[2.40]   ding hard words,wherein al|so thou {|sh}alt be much helped for the un­
[2.41]   der{|st}anding of the Bible, and other hi{|st}ories : and a grammar
[2.42]   Scholer learne to knowe when his authors both Greeke and Latine
[2.43]   liued, and when the principall Hi{|st}ories in them were done.


[2.44]   I haue |set downe a Table conteining and teaching the true wri­
[2.45]   ting and vnder{|st}anding of any hard engli{|sh} word, borrowed from
[2.46]   the Greeke, Latine, or French, and how to know the one from the
[2.47]   other, with the interpretation thereof by a plaine Engli{|sh} word:
[2.48]   whereby Children {|sh}all be prepared for the vnder{|st}anding of thou­
[2.49]   |sands of Latine words before they enter the grammar Schole, which
[2.50]   al|so will bring much delight and iudgement to others. Therefore
[2.51]   if thou vnder{|st}ande{|st} not any word in this Booke, not before ex­
[2.52]   pounded, |seeke the Table.


[2.53]   If I may be generally receyued, I {|sh}all cau|se one vniforme maner
[2.54]   of teaching: a thing which as it hath brought much pro{fi}te vnto
[2.55]   the Latine Tongue,|so would it doe to all other languages,if the like
[2.56]   were pra{ct}i|sed.


[2.57]   Finally,I haue giuen thee |such examples for fayre writing,wher­
[2.58]   by in euery |schoole all bad hands may bee abandoned, that if thou
[2.59]   {|sh}oulde{|st} buy the like of any other (which thou {|sh}all |seldome {fi}nd in
[2.60]   England) they alone would co{st} thee much more money then I aske
[2.61]   thee for my whole profe{|s|s}ion.

[2.62]   If thou de|sire{|st} to bee further |satis{fi}ed, for the performance of
[2.63]      the|se things; reade the preface where thou {|sh}alt al|so |see the
[2.64]      rea|son of |some things in the {fi}r{|st} booke; which thou mighte{|st}
[2.65]      otherwi|se di|slike.

The Preface for dire{ct}ion to
the Reader.

[3.1]     OTher men in their writings (gentle Reader) may
[3.2]     iu{|st}ly v|se |such {|st}ile,as may declare learning or elo­
[3.3]     quence {fi}t for a |scholer : but I am enforced of ne­
[3.4]     ce|ssitie to a{ff}e{ct} that plaine rudenes, which may
[3.5]     be{|st} {fi}t the capacitie of tho|se per|sons, with whom I
[3.6]     haue to deale. The learneder |sort are able to vn­
[3.7]     der{|st}and my purpo|se , and to teach this treati|se
[3.8]     without further dire{ct}ion , I am now therefore to
[3.9]     dire{ct} my |speech vnto the vnskilfull, which de{|si}re
[3.10]   to make v|se of it for their owne priuate bene{fi}t : And vnto |such men and
[3.11]   women of trades (as Taylors, Weauers, Shop-keepers, Seam{|st}ers,and |such
[3.12]   other) as haue vndertaken the charge of teaching others. Giue me leaue
[3.13]   therefore (I be|seech thee) to |speake plainly and familiarly vnto thee, yea
[3.14]   let me intreate thee to giue diligent regard to tho|se things which I {|sh}all de­
[3.15]   liuer vnto thee, I |seeke nothing by thee,but thine owne plea|sure, ea|se and
[3.16]   pro{fi}t,and the good of thy |scholers. If peraduenture for two or three dayes
[3.17]   at the {fi}r{|st},it may |seeme |somewhat hard or {|st}range vnto thee, yet be not di|s­
[3.18]   couraged,neither ca{|st} it from thee :for if thou take diligent paines in it but
[3.19]   foure dayes,thou {|sh}alt learne many very pro{fi}table things that thou neuer
[3.20]   knewe{|st},yea thou {|sh}alt know more for the Engli{|sh} tongue, then any man of
[3.21]   thy calling(not being a Grammarian)in England knoweth:thou {|sh}alt teach
[3.22]   thy |scholers with better commendation and pro{fi}t then any other,not fol­
[3.23]   lowing this order,teacheth : And thou maie{|st} {|si}t on thy {|sh}op-bord,at thy
[3.24]   loomes,or at thy needle,and neuer hinder thy worke,to heare thy |scholers,
[3.25]   after thou ha{|st} once made this little booke familiar vnto thee. The pra{ct}i|se
[3.26]   and order of {|st}udie I know is a {|st}ranger vnto thee : yet mu{|st} thou now bee
[3.27]   |sure that thou pa{|s|s}e not ouer any one word, before thou well vnder{|st}ande{|st}
[3.28]   it.If thou can{|st} not {fi}nde out the meaning and true v|se of any rule or word,
[3.29]   and hauing none pre|sent to helpe thee,
make a marke thereat with a pen or
[3.30]   pin,vntill thou meete{|st} with your Mini{|st}er, or other learned |scholer of whom
[3.31]   thou mai{|st} enquire: and do not think it any di|scredite to declare thy want,
[3.32]   being in a matter pertayning to Grammar,or other |such things,as tho|se of
[3.33]   thy condition,are v|sually vnacquainted with : rather a{|s|s}ure thy |selfe,that al
[3.34]   wi|se men will commend thee, that de{|si}re{|st} knowledge, which may reie{ct}:

Thus mu{|st} I
li|spe, and poynt
with the {fi}nger,
or not to be vn­

[IMAGE of A3v]

[3.35]   and they which refu|se to be dire{ct}ed,I know are |such as delight in their |sot­
[3.36]   ti{|sh} ignorance,like Scoggens prie{|st}, who becau|se he had v|sed his old annuni­
[3.37]   |simus for the|se dozen yeres,would not for|sake it,for the others new a{|s|s}ump­
[3.38]   |simus, though it were neuer |so good. Two things generally you mu|st marke
[3.39]   for the v|se of this booke : {fi}r{|st},the true vnder{|st}anding of it for the matter:
[3.40]   |secondly,the manner of learning it,if thou be onely a |scholer,then the or­
[3.41]   der of teaching it,if thou bee al|so a teacher. And for the {fi}r{|st},where I pro­
[3.42]   fe{|s|s}e to teach with farre more ea|se and plea|sure to the learner,and therfore
[3.43]   with greater |speede then other : vnder{|st}and the rea|son. Thou ha{|st} but two
[3.44]   principall things to learne,to |spell truly any word of one |syllable,and to di­
[3.45]   uide truly any word of many. For the {fi}r{|st} I haue di|spo|sed |syllables |so in the
[3.46]   {fi}r{|st} booke (how|soeuer at the {fi}r{|st} {|si}ght they may |seeme common) as that
[3.47]   thou can{|st} meete none but either thou ha{|st} it there |set downe,or at lea{|st} |so
[3.48]   many like both for beginning or end,as that none can be propounded vnto
[3.49]   thee,which thou {|sh}alt not be skilful in. And I haue |so begun with the ea{|si}e{|st},
[3.50]   proceeding by degrees vnto harder, that the {fi}r{|st} learned,all the other will
[3.51]   follow with very little labour. The|se |syllables knowne,becau|se al words be
[3.52]   they neuer |so long or hard be made of them, thou ha{|st} nothing to learne
[3.53]   but to diuide them : for which I haue layd downe |so ea|sie & certaine rules,
[3.54]   (beleeue me that haue tried)as that thou {|sh}alt neuer erre in any hard word:
[3.55]   I doubt not, but thine owne experience {|sh}al {fi}nde this true, and |so my pro­
[3.56]   mi|se in that point performed to the full. Maruaile not why in this {fi}r{|st} book
[3.57]   I haue di{ff}ered in writing many |syllables from the v|suall manner, yea from
[3.58]   my |selfe in the re{|st} of the worke: as templ without (e),tun with one (n) and
[3.59]   plums,not plummes,&c. my rea|son is, I haue there put no moe letters then
[3.60]   are ab|solute nece|ssitie, when in the re{|st} I haue followed cu{|st}ome : yea,
[3.61]   often I write the |same word diuer{|sl}y (if it be vsed indi{ff}erently) the better
[3.62]   to acquaint thee with any kinde of writing. Touching the |speeches at the
[3.63]   end of the 1. 2. 4. 7. and 8. chapters,regard not the matter (being vaine)but
[3.64]   my purpo|se, which is to bring thee to pre|sent v|se of reading words of one
[3.65]   |syllable, which thou ha{|st} learned to |spell, and |so thou maie{|st} haue nothing
[3.66]   in the |second booke to learne,but only diui{|si}on of words, and other harder
[3.67]   ob|seruations. The titles of the chapters and notes in the margent (which I
[3.68]   would alwayes haue thee diligently read and marke)will make the|se things
[3.69]   more plaine vnto thee.

[3.70]   Al|so, where I vndertake to make thee to write the true Orthographie of
[3.71]   any word truly pronounced, I mu{|st} meane it of tho|se words, who|se writing
[3.72]   is determined : for there are many wherein the be{|st} Engli{|sh} men in this
[3.73]   land are not agreed.As |some write malicious, deriuing it from malice.Other
[3.74]   write malitious, as from the Latine malitio|sus. So |some write German from
[3.75]   the Latine,|some Germain from the French. Neither do I deale with proper
[3.76]   names,{|st}range words of arte in |seuerall |sciences,nor the vnknowne termes
[3.77]   of peculiar countries, (if they di{ff}er from ordinary rules) vnles |sometime
[3.78]   vpon |some |speciall occa{|si}on. I know ere this , thou thir{|st}e{|st} that art a tea­
[3.79]   cher,to heare how thou maie{|st} with more ea|se and pro{fi}t teach a hundreth
[3.80]   |scholers then before fortie : follow mine adui|se, and I warrant the |succe{|s|s}e.

[IMAGE of A4r]

[3.81]   Let euery one of thy |scholers (for the be{|st} thou ha{|st} {|sh}all learne that here
[3.82]   which he neuer knew, neither needeth he any other for Engli{|sh}) prouide
[3.83]   and v|se this booke : then diuide thy |scholers into 2. 3. or 4 |sorts,as thy num­
[3.84]   ber is (for moe thou neede{|st} not, although thou ha{|st} a hundreth |scholers)
[3.85]   and place |so many of them as are neere{|st} of like forwardnes,in one le{|s|s}on
[3.86]   or forme, as in Grammar |schooles, and |so go through thy whole number,
[3.87]   not making aboue foure companies at the mo{|st} : |so that thou {|sh}alt haue but
[3.88]   foure le{ct}ures to heare,though thou ha{|st} an hundreth |scholers,whereas be­
[3.89]   fore thou hadde{|st} fortie le{ct}ures, though but fortie |scholers. Then when
[3.90]   thou woulde{|st} heare any forme,call them forth all,bee they ten,twentie, or
[3.91]   moe together : heare two or three that thou mo{|st} |su|spe{ct}e{|st} to be mo{|st} neg­
[3.92]   ligent,or of dulle{|st} conceit,and let all the other attend : or let one read one
[3.93]   line,|sentence or part,another the next,and |so through : |so that all do |some­
[3.94]   what,and none know,when or what {|sh}all be required of him,encourage the
[3.95]   mo{|st} diligent and tendere{|st} natures. And thus doubt not but thou {|sh}alt doe
[3.96]   more good vnto twentie in one houre, then before vnto foure in |seuerall
[3.97]   le{|s|s}ons : for the appo|sing each other, as I haue dire{ct}ed in the end of the |se­
[3.98]   cond booke, emulation, and feare of di|scredite, will make them enuie who
[3.99]   {|sh}all excell. By this meanes al|so euery one in a higher forme |shall be well
[3.100]   able to helpe tho|se vnder him, and that without lo{|s|s}e of time, |seeing there­
[3.101]   by he repeateth that which he lately learned. Now touching the framing
[3.102]   and |sweete tuning of thy voyce, I haue giuen thee this helpe, I haue added
[3.103]   for pro|se al |sorts of {|st}ile both dialogue and other:and for ver|se, P|salmes and
[3.104]   other ver|ses of all the |seuerall |sorts v|suall,which being well taught,wil frame
[3.105]   thee to the naturall reading of any Engli{|sh}. But here I mu{|st} make earne{|st}
[3.106]   reque{|st} vnto all carefull Mini{|st}ers, that as they tender the good education
[3.107]   of the youth in their pari{|sh}es , they would |sometimes repayre vnto the
[3.108]   |schooles of |such teachers as are not Grammarians, to heare their children
[3.109]   pronounce , and to helpe |such with their dire{ct}ion, that de{|si}re to v|se this
[3.110]   booke in their |schooles: for it is lamentable to |see into what ignorant hand­
[3.111]   ling {|si}llie little children chaunce, which {|sh}ould at the {fi}r{|st} bee mo{|st} skilfully
[3.112]   grounded,which is the only cau|se of |such wofull ignorance in |so many men
[3.113]   and women, that cannot write without great error one |sentence of true
[3.114]   Engli{|sh} : therefore let parents now bee wi|se vnto whom they commit their
[3.115]   children.

[3.116]   But to returne vnto my teaching trades-man, if thou de{|si}re{|st} to be enfor­
[3.117]   med how to teach this treati|se, marke diligently the dire{ct}ions giuen in all
[3.118]   places of the booke : and as thy |scholer is in |saying his le{|s|s}on,marke what
[3.119]   words he mi{|s|s}eth,and them note with a penne or pinne,and let him repeate
[3.120]   them at the next le{ct}ure, and |so vntill he bee perfe{ct},not regarding tho|se
[3.121]   where he is skilfull.And let his fellowes al|so remember them to appo|se him
[3.122]   in them in their appo{|si}tions. But me thought I heard thee |say that my
[3.123]   rea|sons haue per|swaded thee to be willing to teach this : but thou can{|st} not
[3.124]   moue all their parents to bee willing to be{|st}ow |so much money on a booke
[3.125]   at the {fi}r{|st}: Tell them from me that they need buy no moe, and then they
[3.126]   {|sh}all |saue much by the bargaine. But they will reply, that his little yong

[IMAGE of A4v]

[3.127]   child will haue torne it before it be halfe learned. Then an|swer him, that a
[3.128]   remedie is prouided for that al|so, which is this : {fi}r{|st}, the Printer vpon the
[3.129]   {|si}ght hereof, hath framed his horne bookes, according to the order of
[3.130]   this booke, making the mo{|st} part of my |second page the matter thereof:
[3.131]   which in mine opinion he did with good rea|son: for a child may by this trea­
[3.132]   ti|se almo{|st} learne to |spell perfe{ct}ly in as little time, as learne well the other
[3.133]   horne-booke. But this latter being {fi}r{|st} learned, being the ground-worke of
[3.134]   |spelling,all the re{|st} of this worke will be gotten with |small labour.Secondly,
[3.135]   I haue |so di|spo|sed the placing of my {fi}r{|st} booke,that if the child {|sh}ould teare
[3.136]   out euery leafe as fa{|st} as he learneth it, yet it {|sh}all not bee greatly hurtfull,
[3.137]   for euery new following chapter repeateth and teacheth againe all that
[3.138]   went before. I hope if he bee a rea|sonable man that this an|swer will |su{ffi}ce.
[3.139]   Touching my Chronologie and table,I haue before the entrance into them
[3.140]   pre{fi}xed the manner how to vnder{|st}and the v|se of them, whereunto I re­
[3.141]   ferre thee,hauing been alreadie ouer tedious. For the particular ordinary
[3.142]   |sounding of the letters, I wholly omit, leauing it to the ordering of the tea­
[3.143]   cher, e|specially it being before |su{ffi}ciently and learnedly handled by ano­
[3.144]   ther. Thus haue I |so plainly pratled and li|sped vnto thee, as that I hope
[3.145]   thou vnder{|st}ande{|st} my purpo|se, and {|si}ngle heart for thy good: which if I
[3.146]   {fi}nde thou accepte{|st}, I may peraduenture hereafter proceede in my cour|se
[3.147]       for the ea{|si}e and |speedie attayning the learned languages, an argu­
[3.148]           ment which as it is more pertinent to my profe|ssion, |so might it
[3.149]               rather be expe{ct}ed from me then this poore pamphlet.
[3.150]                   But in the meane time, if in this thou {fi}nde my
[3.151]                       words true, accept my good will, and
[3.152]                           giue glorie to God.

  When your Scholer
hath perfe{ct}ly learned
his letters, teach him
to knowe his vowels :
And after two or three
daies, when he is skil­
full in them, teach him
to call al the other let­
ters,con|sonants:and |so
proceede with the o­
ther wordes of art, as
they {|st}and in the mar­
gent, neuer troubling
his memory with a new
word,before he be per­
fe{ct} in the old.
  *c.Before a.o.u. like
(k) but before e. or i.
like |s. if no other letter
come betweene.
  Now you may teach
your Scholer, that he
can |spell nothing with­
out a vowell.


[] If we do ill : fy on vs all:
[] Ah is it |so: is he my fo?
[] Wo be to me,if I do |so.

[] Vp go on : lo I |see a py,
[] So it is,if I do ly
[] Wo is me,oh I dy
[] Ye |see in me,no ly to be.

  Teach him that (y)
is put for (i) the vowel,
and make him reade
the|se lines di{|st}in{ct}ly.

CHAP. 2.

[]   TEacheth to ioyne the two former |sorts of |syllables together,I
[]   meane (ba : and ab :) and |so the re{|st} : with pra{ct}i|se of rea­
[]   ding the |same |sortes of words of three letters : And heere you
[]   |see that this,and euery new Chapter, doth |so repeate all that
[]   went before,that your |scholer can forget nothing.

[]   Ba bab ba bad ba bag bar ba bat bay.
[]   Be bed be beg be bet.

[] Li lib lig lim li lip.
[] Lo lob log lo lol lop los lot low.

  Here you may teach
your Scholer , to call
the|se wordes |syllabls,
and that |so many let­
ters, as we |spell toge­
ther, we call a |syllable.
And you may repeate
the {fi}r{|st} two letters,as
o{ft}en as the capaci­
tie of the child {|sh}all re­
quire it : And for the
more plea|sure of the
child, I haue v|sed |such
|syllabls as are v|sed for
Engli{|sh} words.


  If now your Scholer
be ready in the former
termes of a vowell, con­
|sonant, and a |syllable,
you may now teach
him what a diphthong
is, e|specially tho|se in
the former Chapter :
ai. ei. oi.au. eu. ou.


[] Me meg men mes. Mi mil mis.
[] Mo mop mos mow. Mu mul mum mur.
[] Na nag nam nan nay. Ne nel net ne new.
[] Ni nib nil ni nip nit. No nod nor not now.
[] Nu num nun nu nut.
[] Pa pan pas pa pat paw pax pay.
[] Pe ped peg pen. Pi pig pil pir.
[] Po pod pot. Pu pul pur pus put.
[] Ra rag ram ran ra rap rat raw ray.
[] Re red rew. Ri rib rig rim rip.
[] Ro rob rod ros rot. Ru rub ruf rug run.
[] Ta tap tar tax. Te teg tel ten tew.
[] Ti tib til tin tip tit. To tog tom top tos tow toy.
[] Tu tub tug tun tut.
[] *Ca cal cam can ca cap cat.
[] Ke ket key. Ki kid kis kit.
[] Co cob cod cog co com cow coy.
[] Cu cud cuf cul cu cup cur cut.
[] Sa |sad |sag |sam |sa |saw. Se |sel |set.
[] Si |sip |sir |sit. So |sob |som |sop |sot |sow.
[] Su |sum |su |sup.
[] Ia iag iar iaw. Ie iet iew. Io iob. Iu iud.
[] Ye yel yes yet.
[] Va van vat. Ve vex.
[] Wa wag wan wat was wax way.
[] We web wel wet.
[] Wi wig wil win. Wo wol wot.
[] Qua quaf quat. Qui quil quip quit.

  *In the|se kinde of
wordes of one |syllable,
we v|se only(e)before (a.
o. u.) and (k) before (e)
and (i) and not other­
wi|se, except in feyned
words,as Cis for Cicely:
Kate for Katherine,or in
|some proper names, as
Cis the Father of Saule.
But we v|se |s. before any
vowels, therefore haue
I placed them as you |see.

[]   *Boy,go thy way vp to the top of the hill, and get me home
[] the bay nag, {fi}ll him well,and |see he be fat, and I will rid me of
[] him;for he will be but dull,as his dam,yet if a man bid well for
[] him,I wil tel him of it : if not I do but rob him : And |so God
[] will vex me,and may let me go to hel, if I get but a iaw-bone
[] of him ill:

  *This |speech is made
onely of the wordes
taught before, where
you are not to regarde
the |sence, being friuo­
lous,but onely to teach
di{|st}in{ct} reading : And
this ob|serue in the
re{|st}, making your |scho­
ler to reade them per­
fe{ct}ly, but not the titles
of the Chapters,nor the
notes in the margent.

The |second Booke of the Engli{|sh}

[] Wherein are taught plaine and ea{|si}e rules , how to deuide truly
[]  and certainly any long and hard word of many |syllables, with
[]  rules of the true writing of any word.

CHAP. 1.

[]   In this Chapter are |set downe the words of art v|sed in this trea­
[] ti|se, with other nece{|s|s}ary rules, and ob|seruations , e|specially for
[] words of one |syllable,both for true writing and reading.

[] Mai-{st}er.
[] DOe you think your |selfe |so |suf-{fi}-ci-ent-ly in-{|st}ruc­
[] ted,to |spell & read di-{|st}in{ct}-ly any word of one |syl­
[] lable,that now we may pro-c{'ee}d,to teach rules for
[] the true and ea-|sy di-ui-{|si}-on of a-ny word of ma­
[] ny |syl-labls?

[] Scho-ler.
[] Sir: I do not well vn-der-{|st}and what you meane by a |syl­
[] lable.

[] Mai. A |syl-lable is a per-fe{ct} |sound, made of |so ma-ny let­
[] ters,as we |spell to-ge-ther: as in di-ui-{|si}-on you |s{'ee} are fow­
[] er |syl-lables.

[] Scho. How ma-ny let-ters may be in a |syl-lable?

[] Mai. A-ny nom-ber vn-der nine,as: I do |say that welch knight
[] brought {|st}rength.

[] Scho. What let-ters may make a |syl-lable a-lone?

I deuide your
|syllables for
you, vntill you
haue rules of
then I leaue
you to your

Looke not for
any exa{ct} de{fi}-
nitions,but for
|such de|scripti­
ons as are {fi}t
for children.

I make (h) a
letter for plain­
nes,which ex­
a{ct}ly is none
but a note of

[] Mai. A-ny of the {fi}ue vo-wels : a.e.i.o.u. as a-ny e-uill I­
[] doll o-uer tur-neth v-ni-ty.

[] Scho. But Sir, I |som-time {fi}nd two vo-wels to-ge-ther
[] in one |syl-lable: what {|sh}all I do with them?


[] Mai. You mu{|st} then call them a * Diph-thong, which is
[] no-thing els, but a |sound made of two vo-wels.

*Teach that a-
ny two vowels
that will make
a per{fi}t |sound,
is called a


[] Scho. Will a-ny two vo-wels make a diph-thong?

[] Mai. No: *none that are ful-ly |soun-ded but the|se : ai,ei,
[] oi, au, eu, ou, oo, ee: as in |say, ei-ther, coin , taught , eu-nuch,
[] ought, good, feed. Which when you {fi}nd you mu{|st} ioyn to­
[] ge-ther, ex-cept in |some pro-per names , as in Be-er-{|sh}e-ba,
[] Na-tha-ne-ell:|so in |se-eth, a-gree-ing, & in |such words,where a
[] |syl-labl be-gin-ning with (e or i) is ad-ded to a per-fe{ct} word
[] en-ding in (e) as |see, a-gree, de-cree. But aa, ao, oe, and |such
[] like make no diph-thongs, and there-fore may not b{'ee} ioy­
[] ned.

For when one
is little |soun­
ded, I call them
(ae and œ) in
latine words
make a diph­


[] Scho. Yet do I {fi}nd ja,je,jo,ju, and va,ve,vi,vo, ioy-ned to­
[] ge-ther, as in Iames, Ie-|sus, ioyn, Iu-das, va-lew, ve-ri-ly, vi-{|si}t,
[] vow. I pray you, are they then no diph-thongs?

[] Mai. No: for j , and v, ioy-ned with a vo-well in the be-
[] gin-ning of a |syl-labl, are tur-ned from vo-wels in-to con­
[] so-nants, as in A-hi-jah.

[] Scho. What mean you by a Con-|so-nant?


[] Mai. I mean all the o-ther let-ters ex-cept the vo­
[] wels which can |spell no-thing with-out one of the vo­
[] wels, as take, e, out of {|st}rength, and {|st}rngth will |spell no­
[] thing.

[] Scho. Why Sir (by) did e-uen now |spell a word, yet is
[] there in it non of the {fi}ue vo-wels.

[] Mai. Ind{'ee}d (y) is of-ten v-|sed for (i) when it is a vo-well :
[] but when they be con-|so-nants they dif-fer, for (y) is al-|so a
[] con-|so-nant, when it is ioy-ned in the be-gin-ning of a |syl­
[] lable with a vo-well, as in yes,you:|so jet, dif-fe-reth from yet :
[] and |such like.

[] Scho. I pray {|sh}ew me the rea-|son, why in (like) which
[] was the la{|st} word you v-|sed, and in ma-ny o-ther be-fore,

[] you put (e) in the end, which is not |soun-ded?

[] Mai. This letter (e) in the end of a word not |soun-ded
[] hath two prin-ci-pall v-|ses. The {fi}r{|st} and chie-fe{|st} is to draw
[] the |syl-lable long, as he is made mad
[] A mill dam : A {|sh}rewd dame.
[] My man hath cut my hor|se mane.
[] A great gap : gape wide.
[] Spare this |spar . Be-ware of war.
[] *Feed vntil thou ha{|st} well fed.
[] You feele not my paine. A wa|sp is fell.
[] He hid the oxe hide.
[] It is a mile to the mill.
[] A little pin: my {fl}e{|sh} doth pine.
[] A branch of {fi}r, g{oo}d for the {fi}re.
[] A dor {|si}tteth on the dore.
[] Tos the ball: To|se the w{oo}ll.
[] You haue a Dot on the no|se: and you dote.
[] Rud is not rude.
[] A tun of wine: the tune of a |song.

(e) Not |soun­


*In this |sound
when (e) is
long, it is com­
monly doub­
led and made
a diphthong.


Make your
Scholers very
perfe{ct}in the|se,
therefore you
may try them
in other like.


[] Scho. What is the |se-cond v|se?

[] Mai. It chan-geth the |sound of |some let-ters : but this v|se
[] with the fur-ther de-cla-ra-ti-on of this let-ter, be-cau|se it
[] is har-der, then you will at the {fi}r{|st} ea-{|si}-ly con-ceiue, I will
[] re-ferre vn-to a-no-ther place.

[] Scho. Are no o-ther let-ters not at all, or but lit-tle pro­
[] noun-ced?

[] Mai. Yes , Very ma-ny:as(a)is not pro-noun-ced in earth,
[] goat : nor (e) in Georg : nor (i) in briefe : nor (o) in people:
[] nei-ther is (u) pro-noun-ced in guide : all which words
[] of all |sorts , I will |set downe af-ter-ward, when I haue gi­
[] uen you more ne-ce|s-|sary rules in the|se three {fi}r{|st} chapters,
[] and you bet-ter able to v|se them.

Letters not


CHAP. 2.

[]     By this Chapter you {|sh}all ea|sylie and plainly know, how many
[] |syllabls are in euery word.

[] Mai. IF you di-li-gent-ly ob|serue the|se things, you can-not
[] erre in a-ny word of one |syl-lable : There-fore I will
[] pro-c{'ee}d in the di-ui-{|si}-on of |syl-lables,which if you wil care­
[] ful-ly marke, you {|sh}al ne-uer fayle in di-ui-ding the lon-ge{|st}
[] or har-de{|st} word,that e-uer you {|sh}all read.

[] Scho. That will a|s-|su-red-ly bring me great pro-{fi}t and
[] plea-|sure; for when I m{'ee}t with a long hard word, I {|st}icke |so
[] fa{|st} in the mire, that I can nei-ther goe for-ward nor backe­
[] ward. And I ne-uer yet hard that a-ny |such rules haue b{'ee}n
[] e-uer yet taught by a-ny : I pray there-fore tell me what is
[] the {fi}r{|st} ge-ne-rall rule,the chie-fe{|st} ground of this worke.

[] Mai. Brief-lie it is this:Marke how ma-ny vo-wels you
[] haue in a word,and in-to |so ma-ny |syl-labls mu{|st} you di-uide
[] that word,as in {|st}rength,ti-ed, e-|spi-ed, |sub-mi|s-{|si}-on, |sa-lu-ta­
[] ti-on, re-ge-ne-ra-ti-on, ex-tra-or-di-na-ri-ly, in which |sea-uen
[] words, you haue as ma-nie |syl-labls as vo-wels, and a-boue
[] |sea-uen |syl-labls, I re-mem-ber no word.

[] Scho. But I {fi}nde the con-tra-rie,e-uen in this rule, for in
[] the|se words, you.haue.briefe. are mo vo-wels then |syl-labls.

[] Mai. It is well ob-|ser-ued : there-fore, you mu{|st} know,
[] that you can hard-lie {fi}nde a ge-ne-rall rule with-out |some
[] ex-cep-ti-ons.

[] Scho. How ma-ny ex-cep-ti-ons hath it?

[] Mai. Thr{'ee}. The {fi}r{|st} is, when there is (e) in the end of a
[] word,or a-ny o-ther vo-wel not at all, or but litle pro-noun­
[] ced, as in chiefe.haue.thwite. where-in wee |sound not (i) in
[] chiefe,nor the la{|st} (e) in a-ny of them.

[] Scho. What is the |se-cond ex-cep-ti-on ?

[] Mai. The |se-cond is,if there be a diph-thong, as in may.
[] your. then haue you two vo-wels in one |sy-lable.

[] Scho. Are there not thr{'ee} vo-wels in your?

[] Mai. No, for I tould you be-fore, that (y) be-fore a vo­
[] well in the |same |syl-lable is a con-|so-nant.

[] Sch. What is the third ex-cep-ti-on?

[] Mai. Words en-ding in (es) haue a-boue one vo-well, as
[] Iames.pre-|serues.al-waies.names.hides.bones. But of the|se
[] more {|sh}all-be |said here-af-ter.

[] Sch. Shall I ne-uer els {fi}nde two vo-wels in one |syl­
[] lable?

[] Mai. Yes, af-ter (q) al-way is (u) with a-no-ther vo-
[] well,as in qua{ff}e.queen.quick. and |some-time af-ter (g) as in
[] Gual-ter.lan-guage. o-ther-wise ne-uer,vn-le|s|se w{'ee} |say that
[] words en-ding in (ven) as Hea-uen. e-uen. are of one |syl-lable,
[] becau|se we com-mon-ly |so pro-nounce them.

CHAP. 3.

[]     This Chapter teacheth plaine rules, how to diuide truely the
[] longe{|st} and harde{|st} Engli{|sh} word that you {|sh}all {fi}nde.

[] Sch. I Haue al-rea-dy with ea|se and cer-tain-ty lear-ned
[] to know how ma-ny |syl-labls are in a-ny word, |so
[] |s{oo}ne as I |s{'ee} it, yet know I not how to di-uide them tru-ly.

[] Mai. Marke then the|se few rules fol-lo-wing, and you
[] {|sh}all ne-uer fayle : The {fi}r{|st} is , if you haue two vo-wels
[] come to-ge-ther both ful-ly pro-nounced, and no diph-thong
[] you mu{|st} put the*for-mer of them in the for-mer |syl-lable and
[] the lat-ter of them to the |syl-lable fol-lo-wing, as in tri-all.
[] mu-tu-all.|say-ing.tri-umph. E-phra-im. Like-wi|se when the
[] |same con-|so-nant is dou-bled , they mu{|st} be di-ui-ded in like
[] man-ner , as, ab-bot. ac-cord. ad-der. let-ter, dif-fer. com­
[] mon, ne-ce|s-{|si}-tie,&c. ex-cept when they be neede-le|s-ly dou­
[] bled in words of the plu-rall nomber,as in plummes,whippes,
[] hilles,cragges, for plums,whips,hils,crags.

[] Sch. What mean you by the *plu-rall nom-ber?

[] Mai. When na-ming a thing, we |speake of mo then one,
[] as one whip, we call the {|si}n-gu-ler nom-ber, be-cau|se it |spea­

*For the latter
|syllable mu{|st}
not begin with

cept the former
end in a vo­

I will now

ler to pre|sent


[] keth but of one, and whips, we call the plu-rall nom-ber, be­
[] cau|se it |spea-keth of mo then one.

[] Scho. But What {|sh}all I d{oo}, when I {fi}nde but one con-|so­
[] nant be-twixt two vo-wels?

One con|so­


[] Mai. aYou mu{|st} put the con-|so-nant vn-to the vo-well
[] follo-wing him, as in e-uer, i-nough, v-|sed, be-cau|se,re-port,
[] de-li-uer,re-ioy-ced, di-li-gent,re-ge-ne-ra-ting,ex-cept in |some
[] com-pound words.

[] Sch.What kind of words be they?

[] Mai. When two |seuerall words , which we call |simple
[] words are ioyned toge-ther, as in |saue-gard, two |syllables,
[] not |sa-ue-gard, thr{'ee} |syllables, b becau|se it is made or com­
[] poun-ded of two |seuerall words, |saue and gard, |so where-of,
[] there-in, here-out, vn-euen, lame-nes, wi|se-ly, where you mu{|st}
[] note , that if the la{|st} part be an addition one-ly, and |sig-ni{fi}e
[] no-thing as (nes) in lame-nes, w{'ee} call that a deriuatiue
[] word,and not a word compounded.c

b We call that
|simple that is

c The |syllable

[] Mai. Al|so (x) is put to the vo-well before him, as in ox­
[] en,ex-er-ci|se, ex-or-ci{|st}s, the rea|son is, becau|se (x)d hath the
[] |sound of two con|sonants, (c. and s. ) and (cs.) cannot begin a
[] |syllable.

d Therefore(x)
is called a dou­
ble con|sonant.


[] Sch. What if there come two diuers con-|sonants, be­
[] twixt two vowels?

Two con|so­


[] Mai. Then, if they be |such as may, they mu{|st} be ioyned,
[] for tho|se that can begin a word, mu{|st} begin a |syllable, in any
[] part of the word.

[] Sch. How then {|sh}all I know which con-|sonants may be­
[] gin a word,and therefore mu{|st} be ioyned ?

[] Mai. If you turne back vnto the third Chap-ter of the
[] {fi}r{|st} b{oo}ke , they are all |set down toge-ther: but becau|se I
[] would haue you very per-fe{ct} in the|se letters,I wil giue you
[] of euery one an example: as ble{|s|s}e,brew,child,clap,creep,draw,
[] dwell,{fl}ame,fret,gla{|s|s}e,gnat,grace, know,play,prai|se,|scab, {|sh}all,
[] skip,{|sl}ow,|smart,|snuf, |spend, |squib, {|st}and, |sway, that, trap, twain,
[] when,wrought.

[] Sch. I pray now giue examples, how the|se mu{|st} be ioy­

[] ned in words of mo |syllabls?

[] Mai. Marke then diligent-ly the|se: re-{|st}ore, not thus re|s­
[] tore, because if ({|st}) may begin a |syllable, it mu{|st} : nor thus, re{|st}­
[] ore. becau|se a con|sonant, (if there be any) mu{|st} begin the |syl­
[] able: |so in re-frain,ex-e-crable. and |such like : But in god-ly,
[] |sel-dom, trum-pet,lod-ged, mor-ning,&c. the midl con|sonants
[] mu{|st} be diuided,becau|se none of the|se: (dl.ld.mp.dg.rn.) can
[] begin a word. Therefore can they not begin a |syllable. A­
[] gaine you may not |spell thus, lodg-ed, becau|se (ge) may be­
[] gin a word.

[] Scho. Is then the |same rea|son to b{'ee} ob|serued, if there
[] come thr{'ee} or moe con|sonants together in the midde{|st} of a
[] word?

Three or moe


[] Mai. Yea, altogether, for as many con|sonants as can,
[] mu{|st} be ioyned,and the re{|st} diuided.

[] Scho. How many con|sonants may come in the beginning
[] of a word?

[] Mai. Thr{'ee}, and no moe: Therefore, if in the midde{|st}
[] there come fower or moe, they mu{|st} bee diuided , although
[] fower may end a |syllable, as in worlds.

[] Scho. How {|sh}all I be |sure, which thr{'ee} may be ioyned ?

[] Mai. They are all |set downe in the beginning of the {fi}ft
[] Chapter of the {fi}r{|st} b{oo}ke. But for more plainnes |sake, I
[] will giue of euery one of them an example, whereof we haue
[] any ordinary Engli{|sh} word, as |scrape, skrew, {|sh}rink, {|st}roke,
[] |split, |spring, thrale, thwite.

[] Scho. Giue an example for diuiding of tho|se words, where­
[] in many con|sonants come together?

[] Mai. One or two may |serue, if you remember what hath
[] b{'ee}n taught. As in this word con{|st}raine, you may not |say
[] co-n{|st}raine, nor con|s-traine, nor con{|st}-raine, nor con{|st}r-aine,
[] but con-{|st}rain, because (n|s) cannot begin a |syllable, and ({|st}r)
[] can,therefore it mu{|st} begin it, |so im-ploy, king-dom, de-{|st}ruc­
[] ti-on,ac-know-ledg, tran|s-gre{|s|s}e, &c. And this rule mu{|st} you
[] carefully {|st}ill pra{ct}i|se, that you may readily giue the rea|son
[] in all |such words, why euery con|sonant mu{|st} goe to this |syl­
[] lable,rather then to that. But {|st}ill l{oo}ke as before, that |some

[] compound words mu{|st} be marked,as mi|s-take. di|s-like. tran|s­
[] po|se. with-out. through-out. &c. Which if they had b{'ee}n |sim­
[] ple words, we mu{|st} haue |spelled them thus, mi-|stake. di-|slike.
[] tran-|spo|se. as you haue learned, becau|se in compo|sition euery
[] word mu{|st} haue his own letters not mingled with other.

[] Scho. But Sir, |some men |spell deriuatiue words thus,
[] |speak-eth. {|st}rength-en-ing. otherwi|se then you haue taught.

[] Mai. I know it well, yet becau|se if |such like words
[] |should be |so |spelled, we mu{|st} for them frame new rules
[] (which were to bring a n{'ee}dle{|s|s}e oppre{|s|s}ion vpon childrens
[] memory.) And that the former rules can bring no inconue­
[] nience in any word : therfore follow them without feare or
[] doubt . And thus may you by this that you haue learned,|spell
[] truly,certainly,and with iudgement,any Engli{|sh} word that
[] can be laid before you.

[] Scho. Although all men will grant, that the|se rules mu{|st}
[] of nece{|s|s}ity bring a |sp{'ee}die cour|se of reading to as many as
[] are of y{'ee}res able to di|scerne : yet many will not ea|sily be­
[] leeue, that litle children can conceiue them, and make v|se of
[] them: And then will they rather bring confu{|si}on then pro{fi}t.


[] Mai. But experience hath taught the contrary , for a
[] child of an ordinary capacity will and hath ea{|si}ly conceiued
[] the|se rules, being orderly taught . But di|scretion mu{|st} be
[] vsed, not to trouble them with any new rule before they be
[] perfe{ct} in the old: The words of art here v|sed are not aboue
[] eyght in all, the mo{|st} of them I would haue the child learne
[] while he is learning to |spell , in the {fi}r{|st} b{oo}ke, as I haue gi­
[] uen dire{ct}ion there in the beginning, which words there,and
[] rules here, being orderly taught as is pre|scribed, neuer doubt
[] by the ble{|s|si}ng of God of a comfortable |succe{|s|s}e: Therefore
[] I wi{|sh} that no man with a preiudicat opinion do reie{ct} them:
[] before he hath made diligent triall vpon |some ordinary wits,
[] But would haue all |such as teach to reade, that they would
[] make their Scholers as perfe{ct} in the rules of the|se thr{'ee}
[] Chapters as may be, being of the chiefe{|st} nece{|s|si}tie and v|se :
[] the other that follow becau|se |some of them b{'ee} more hard,
[] containing onely di{ff}erences of |sounds of our Engli{|sh} let­


[] ters,and other ob|seruations for true writing, if your child be
[] very yong or dull, trouble him with vnder{|st}anding no moe
[] of them, then he is {fi}t to conceiue and v|se, yet let him learne
[] to read them all, for if it were graunted that he could vnder­
[] {|st}and none of them, no nor yet |some of the former,yet while{|st}
[] he readeth them, he learneth as much, and goeth on as fa{|st},as
[] by reading any other matter : For I demaund what he vn­
[] der{|st}andeth, when h{'ee} readeth a Chapter in the Bible, yet
[] will no man deny him pro{fi}te by reading: And this hath made
[] me longer by the one halfe for plainnes |sake, then otherwi|se
[] I might,knowing that in pra{ct}i|sing to read,he lo|seth not his
[] labour.


CHAP. 4.

[] This Chapter layeth forth a more full declaration of certaine
[] rules mentioned before,as of (e) in the end of a word:of tho|se let­
[] ters which are not pronounced: and for writing words of the plu­
[] rall number.

[] Scho. I Remember you told me that (e) in the end of a word
[] not pronounced , be{|si}de that it draweth the |syllable
[] long, it al|so changeth the |sound of letters, I pray which are
[] they?

Of (e) in the
end of a word.


[] Mai. It changeth the |sound of the|se letters, u. c. g. when
[] any of the|se vowels go before, as inau. eu. iu.ou. ac. ic. uc. ag.
[] ug. so in ng. rg. as in hau*. haue. leu. leue. lou.loue. |so caue. |saue.
[] |salue. hiue. thriue. |so ac. without (e) is |sounded like (ak) but ace.
[] with (e) like a|se. as in ac-cord but place. race. |so lic. lice truc,
[] truce.Likewi|se ag. age. as {|st}ag {|st}age. |so cag. cage. |so hug. huge.
[] deluge. |so hang. {|st}range.{|st}ring. fringe. |so larg. large. in mo{|st} of
[] which (e) doth al|so draw the |syllable long, as you |saw in ag.
[] age. hug. huge. Where you mu{|st} marke that the |sound which
[] (g) hath in age and huge being long:in {|sh}ort |syllables is made
[] by putting (d) before (g) as in badg. trudg. So is it al|so when
[] (e.i.) or (o) come before (g) as in leg. ledg. rig. ridg. log. lodg.
[] which vowels before (g) are neuer long except in lieg. {|si}eg.
[] which is by putting in (i)

*Here u) with
(e) hath the
|sound of a
And (ce) is as
(|se) And when
a {|sh}ort word
end in (c) we
v|se to ad (k.)


[] Scho. But Sir, you haue v|sed(e) in the end of many words
[] not |sounded, when neither it changeth |sound, nor maketh the
[] |syllable long : why is that?

[] Mai. We v|se it in d{'ee}d often, but rather of cu{|st}ome, (as
[] they |say) for * beauty then of nece|s{|si}tie , as after (i) but not
[] after (y) as in bie. by. and after two con|sonants, or a con­
[] |sonant doubled , as in article , angle, barre, chaffe , |sonne,
[] whereas the learned languages , neither double the con|so­
[] nant,nor v|se |such (e):as the Latines |say, mel.a{|ss}e. ros. we mell.
[] a{|s|s}e. ro{|s|s}e. And |sometime, we v|se not (e) when the word is
[] long, as after (ll) as in all, fall, {|sh}all : yea wee v|se (as) longer
[] without (e) then a{|s|s}e with it. Yet |sometime we v|se (e) after
[] two con|sonants, to draw the |syllable long , for di{ff}erence
[] |sake,principally if the one of them be (l) as in cradle,ladle,lea{|st}
[] they {|sh}ould b{'ee} pronounced {|sh}ort, like |sadl, radl, which |some
[] men would di{|st}ingui{|sh} by doubling (dd) as |saddle. But it is
[] both vnu|suall and n{'ee}dle{|s|s}e to write bibbl and chilld, to make
[] them differ from bible and childe. Al|so |some pronounce the|se
[] words: blind, {fi}nd, behind, {|sh}ort, other blinde, {fi}nde, behinde,
[] with (e) long. Which (e) if wee {|sh}ould write after |some
[] words,it would vtterly ouerthrow the naturall |sound, as if
[] wee {|sh}ould write hang with (e) thus hange , wee mu{|st} pro­
[] nounce it like {|st}range. And hence ari|seth the di{ff}erence of the
[] la{|st} |syllable in hanger and {|st}ranger. So words |sounding as
[] long, |song, and ending in ing, as in reading , writing, if they
[] {|sh}ould haue (e) would |sound like fringe,hinge as |swing him in
[] a rope: |swinge him with a rod: which mu{|st} not be written
[] with (dg) frindg, (as |some think)) as the former examples
[] {|sh}ew, and the|se words, fringed, hinged, where (d) is neuer
[] written.

*E|specially af­
ter (i) and (u)
as in e|spie, ar


Whereas |some
would make
|such words as
able two |syl­
lables, and that
(c) in the end
make (bl) to
be as it were a
|syllable, I can
|see no rea|son
for it.


[] Scho. If this b{'ee} cu{|st}om without rea|son, what certainty
[] {|sh}all I hold?

[] Mai. Although it were g{oo}d and ea|sy, both for our own
[] country learners and for {|st}rangers, that certaine rules were
[] known and pra{ct}i|sed, (which thing might ea|sily be done) yet
[] becau|se it lieth not in vs to reforme, I wi{|sh} you rather to ob­
[] |serue the be{|st}, and follow that which we haue, then to labour

[] for innouation which we cannot e{ff}ect. And let this admoni­
[] tion |serue for all cu{|st}oms in the re{|st}.

[] Scho. I remember you promi|sed me to |set down tho|se words
[] which haue other letters be{|si}des this (e) either not at all, or
[] but litle pronounced.

[] Mai. I will either |set you them down,or els giue you rules
[] to know them,marke them therefore,as they follow.

A letter not


[] (a) Is not pronounced when (ea or oa) come together, as
[] in earth, wealth,beauty,abroad,roar,boat. where (a) doth draw
[] the |syllable long, like (e) in the end , as appeareth by the|se
[] words, bea{|st}, be{|st} bread, bred, goad, god, coa{|st}, co{|st}. as if you
[] wrot, brede, gode, &c. And hereupon this word yeare. yeere.
[] yere. is diuer{|sl}y written:yet we |say be-atitude.cre-at.cre-ator,
[] &c. but crea-ture. And in forraine proper names wee com­
[] monly pronounce both, as in Ieho{|sh}abe-ath. Gile-ad. Teko-a.
[] Bo-az.

The ioyning
of the|se kind
of vowels may
be called im­
proper diph­
thongs, be­
cau|se one of
them is litle


[] (e) Not pronounced in Georg. trueth.


[] (i) In {|sh}ield. {fi}eld. prie{|st}. chief. brief. {|sh}riefe. griece {|si}eg. Mai­
[] {|st}er. their. view. mi|schiefe. {fi}erce. frie|se. atchieue. marueil.reliefe.
[] griefe. biere. adiew. inter{fi}er. kerchiefe. lieuetenant. fruit. |suit.
[] brui|se. bruit.


[] (o) In people. {fl}oud. bloud. yeoman. ieoperdy.


[] (u) In gue{|st}. gui|se. buy. guid. prologue. build. tongue. guile.
[] guilty. conduit. league. dialogue. plague. epilogue. |synagogue.


[] (b) In lamb. comb. thumb. debt. doubt. bdelium.


[] (c) In backe. packe. decke. pecke. licke. {|st}icke. rocke. knocke.
[] bucke. lucke. and all like, for we v|se no {|sh}ort words ending
[] in (c) without (k) |so in tho|se that end in ackle.eckle.ickle.ockle.
[] vckle.


[] Scho. Why may w{'ee} not |say that (k) is not pronounced in
[] the|se, as well as (c.)

[] Mai. It di{ff}ereth not much which, for although that (k)
[] doth end our Engli{|sh} words, when they be long : as in bake.
[] cake. |seeke. |speake. like. loke. duke : yet the|se that w{'ee} make
[] {|sh}ort, the Latines make the |same |sound in (c) as lac. nec. dic.
[] |sic. hoc. duc. when we |say lacke.necke. dicke.|sicke.hocke ducke.


[] (g) In {|si}gne. re{|si}gne. en{|si}gne. flewgme. reigne, |souereigne.
[] Ga|scoigne.


[] (h) In Chri{|st}. mirrh. Gho{|st}. Iohn. whole |scholer. eunuch.
[] chronicles. authoritie. anchor. choller. chri{|st}all. Rhene. Rheni{|sh}.
[] rhetorike. abhominable. melancholy. So in forraine proper
[] names, as Thomas Achaia. Cheaanah. Zacharias. Zichri. Chi­
[] os. Ari{|st}archus: So tho|se that end in arch. as Monarche : but in
[] the beginning |seldome , as Archangell, therefore commonly
[] written Arkangell.


[] (gh) Comming together, (except in Ghost) are of mo{|st}
[] men but little |sounded, as might, {|si}ght: pronounced as mite,
[] {|si}te: but in the end of a word, |some countries |sound them ful­
[] ly,other not at all, as |some |say plough, bough, {|sl}ough, other
[] plow, bou, {|sl}ou : Thereupon |some write burrough, |some bor­
[] row: but the true{|st} is both to write and pronounce them.


[] (n) In |solemne, hymne.


[] (p) In P|salme. receit. accompt.


[] (|s) In I|sle.


[] (t) Is alwaies written , but little |sounded before (ch)
[] when the |syllable is {|sh}ort , not hauing another con|sonant
[] next before,as in Catch. {|st}retch. ditch botch. |smatch. except in
[] rich. which. much. |such. in which cu{|st}ome hath preuayled a­
[] gain{|st} rule : But if the |syllable be long, or hath another con­
[] |sonant with (ch) then (t) is not written,as in attach. reproch.
[] couch. belch. bench.&c.

In |such rules
of writing you
mu{st} not only
vnder{|st}and the
{fi}r{|st} originall
word, but all
deriuatiues ri­
{|si}ng from them.
Note that (e)
long |sounded
as in |sea,not as
|see: is alwaies
written with


[] Here againe ob|serue, that cu{|st}ome hath preuailed again{|st}
[] rea|son,els why {|sh}ould(a) be written in boar,boat:rather then
[] in dore, dote: or (i) in fruite, rather then brute : But to know
[] when to write them, and when not, you {|sh}all {fi}nde all that
[] may br{'ee}d doubt,|set down in the table,at the end of the b{oo}ke,
[] where you may a|ske coun|saile , as your doubtes {|sh}all ari|se,
[] and not for the|se |sorts onely,but for any other hard or doubt­
[] full word,e|specially not mentioned before in this b{oo}ke.

[] Scho. You tould m{'ee} you would ob|serue |some thing more,
[] in words ending in (es) I pray what is it ?

Words of the
plurall nomber.


[] Mai. Well remembred : It is this, words ending in (es)

[] are mo{|st} of the plurall nomber, & are made of the {|si}ngular by
[] adding(s): for where it is not n{'ee}dfull to v|se (e) in the end of
[] the {|si}ngular nomber, it {|sh}all not be n{'ee}dfull to v|se (es) in the
[] Plurall, as in iewels, ingins : except the {|si}ngular end in a vo­
[] well,or in (w) put for (u) as in {fl}ies, pies,toes, crowes. There­
[] fore {|sh}all you {fi}nde, hands, things, words: more v|suall in the
[] exa{ct}e{|st} writers, then handes, thinges, wordes with (e), al­
[] though both wayes be common: and this maketh the di{ff}e­
[] rence betwixt mils and miles : tuns and tunes : curs and cures,
[] and not by writing them being {|sh}ort with the con|sonant dou­
[] bled,as milles,tunnes,curres: which is n{'ee}dle{|s|s}e though v|suall:
[] vnle{|s|s}e it b{'ee} |sometimes for di{ff}erence of words , as to make
[] |sonnes di{ff}er from the |sound of the Latine word |sons.

[] Scho. Are there then neuer moe |syllables in the plurall
[] nomber,then in the {|si}ngular?

[] Mai. Yes |sometime, as when the {|si}ngular nomber en­
[] deth in ce. ch. ge. gd. s. or {|sh}. as in graces. places. churches. ca­
[] ges. hedges. no|ses. {fi}{|sh}es. And this maketh the di{ff}erence be­
[] twixt gags for the mouth, and gages for a ve{|s|s}ell. Note al|so
[] that if the {|si}ngular nomber end in (f) it is turned in the plu­
[] rall into (v) as wife, knife, calfe, who|se plurals are wiues,
[] kniues, calues.

[] Scho. Do all words of the plurall nomber end in (s) ?

[] Mai. No : for we |say, lice, mice, men, brethren, oxen, teeth,
[] feet,kine, and many other. And |sometime the {|si}ngular & plu­
[] rall are both one:as {|sh}eepe,tenne {|sh}eepe, one mile, twen­ [] tie mile or miles.

CHAP. 5.

[] This Chapter teacheth all other ob|seruations that are nece{|s|s}ary
[] for the perfe{ct}ing of a Scholer.

[] Scho. WHat is the {fi}r{|st} thing next to be learned?

[] Mai. You {|sh}all {fi}nd |some words written with (e & o)
[] {|si}ngle, when they {|sh}ould be written with the diphthongs, ee
[] eo as be, he, {|sh}e, me, we, do, mother, for bee, hee, doo &c. but

(e and o)

[] *thee, when we |speake vnto one, and the, otherwi|se, and |so
[] mu{|st} their pronounciation di{ff}er,as I wil tell thee, the matter.

* Which Gram­
marians call
the |second


[] Secondly that ph, is as much as (f) and is v|sed onely in
[] words borrowed from the Greeke tongue. As in phy{|si}cke,
[] prophet, Phillip, Phenice: for the re{|st} l{oo}ke the Table.


[] Thirdly |some letters be{|si}de those before mentioned , haue
[] not alwayes one and the |same |sound. As, th. is commonly
[] |sounded, as in the|se words: * thanke,theefe,third,throt, thumpe:
[] except in the|se words following: that, fatham, the, them, then,
[] there,their, the|se, brothell, furthe{|st}, thine,this,thither, worthy,thou,
[] though, thus, and in words of mo then one |syllable, ending in
[] ther, thed, theth, the{|st}, thing, as father, breathed , breathe{|st}, ba­
[] theth |seething.

* Like (&thgr;,) the
Greeke (th.)
which onely
Scholers vn­


[] Al|so (g)when(e or i) follow, bringeth great hardnes to our
[] learners and {|st}rangers, being diuer{|sl}y |sounded : (ge) mo{|st} of­
[] ten |soundeth as(ie)as in *agent, gorget,gentle,Gentile. except
[] in the|se words, together get, bragget, target burgen, ge{|s|s}e, geld,
[] gewgawes, vineger, anger, {fi}nger, hanger, hunger, eager,suger.
[] And (gi) as (ji) as in giant, ginger, Clergie, imagin. &c. except
[] in begin, biggin, giddy, gift, gig, giglet, gild, gill, guiltie,gimlet,
[] ginnie hen,gird, girdle, girle, girth,gittron, giue,giues, Gibbon.
[] And deriuatiues ending in ger, ged, geth, ge{|st}, ging , which
[] follow the |sound of the words whereof they be made , as in
[] hanger, hanged, hangeth, hange{|st}, hanging : Some men thinke
[] that the|se words might be thus di{ff}erently written, a childs
[] gig, and a Scotti{|sh} jig : the gil of a {fi}{|sh}, and a jill of wine. But
[] our English tongue will hardly beare (ji) in one |syllable :
[] Therefore to be |sure when to write (g,) and when (i,) know
[] that the |sound (gi) is alwaies written with (g): And write
[] (ie) alwaies with (i,) |sauing in tho|se words that you {|sh}all
[] {fi}nde written with (g) in the table. But our Engli{|sh} proper
[] names are written as it plea|seth the printer or as men haue
[] receiued them by tradition, otherwi|se why {|sh}ould Iermin be
[] written otherwi|se then the {fi}r{|st} |syllable in German or Ie{ff}e
[] rather then Ge{ff}e. And this I take to be the rea|son, when Gif­
[] ford is diuer{|sl}y pronounced, and made two di{ff}erent names,
[] which is mo{|st} like to b{'ee} at the {fi}r{|st}, but one : yea, I haue

*The {fi}r{|st} |sort
are |sounded
like the latine
(g): the other
like the greeke


[] known two naturall brethren, both learned, to write their
[] own names di{ff}erently.

(ge) and (gi)

[] Moreouer (ti) before (on) is pronounced as({|si})as in redemp­
[] tion, (exccept (|s, or x.) goe before, as que{|st}ion, adu{|st}ion, mixti­
[] on) and commonly before other vowels, as in patience , Æ­
[] gyptian, except when a |syllable beginning with a vowell is
[] added to a perfect word ending in (ti) as if (ing) bee added to
[] pitty or (e{|st}) to lofty, it is pittying, loftie{|st}.


[] But the harde{|st} thing in our Engli{|sh} tongue, for true
[] writing, is to di|scerne when to writ (ce or |se,) (ci or {|si},) or
[] both, as|science: therfore many words that are meerely Eng­
[] li{|sh}, are almo{|st} left indi{ff}erent, As |some write fau{|s|s}et |some
[] fau|set, other faucet, |so pincers or pin|sers;bullace bulla|se,some bul­
[] leis:|so Si{|s|s}ers,|some Ci|sers, but exa{ct}ly it is |sci{|s|s}ers. But becau|se
[] the mo{|st} are written with,|s. as |seat,|serue,{|si}de,{|si}cke, &c.Ther­
[] fore you may writ (|s) before (e and i,) except in tho|se words
[] that are written with (c) in the table, or any other made of
[] them by * deriuation or compo{|si}tion, as if you know how to
[] write Cite, you mu{|st} |so write incite, Citation, incitation, and
[] |so in other: Note that ance, ence,ince, once, ounce, ancy,ency,
[] are v|sually written with (c,) |so is it after (a) in the end, as
[] temperance, prudence, excellency,grace, &c. except in ca|se,ba|se,
[] cha|se, or when (|s) is |sounded like (z) * as ama|se:words begin­
[] ning with trans be alwaies written with(|s,)and with circum
[] with (c)as transferre,circum{|st}ance, for other exceptions |see the
[] table.


* That is by
adding |some
thing to the
beginning or

like (z) as
bra{|si}er, like


[] But to know when to write ci. {|si}. ti. xi. before (on) ob|serue
[] that(ci)and(xi)are |seldome,as |su|spicion, complexion: ({|si})more

[] {|si}on,fu{|si}on,gre{|s|si}on,hen{|si}on,lu{|si}on,mi{|s|si}on, pa{|s|si}on, pre{|s|si}on,pul­
[] {|si}on,ri{|si}on,|se{|s|s}ion,|swa{|si}on, ver{|si}on, vi{|si}on,as occa{|si}on, confe{|s|si}on,
[] conuer{|si}on,&c. but mo{|st} v|suall is (ti) as redemption, &c.but for
[] the particulars if you doubt view the table.

Ci. {|si}. ti. xi.

[] Scho. What els is to be ob|serued?

[] Mai. That diuers other words of the |same pronounciation
[] by changing their {|si}gni{fi}cation, change al|so their writing, as
[] the reigne of a Prince, the reine of a bridle, & the raine falleth.

Diuers writing

[] Two men came to me. Their minds are there.
[] Wait on me, and I will |sell it by weight.
[] Nay, not |so, the hor|se doth neigh.

[] Sometimes the |same writing is diuer{|sl}y |sounded, as (s)

[] come betwixt two vowels,as that it may be taken for a diph­
[] thong, or a con|sonant,as Iehoi-adah,or Ieho-jadah.

The |same wri­
ting of diuers


[] Sometimes we {|sh}all haue a word diuer{|sl}y written in the
[] |same |sen|se,as (w) is written for (u),as in (browne, broune)but
[] e|specially in the ende of a word. Yet doe now, how, di{ff}er in
[] |sound from know, blow. And therefore I |see no rea|son why
[] now, and how, might not be written as thou and you, thus :
[] nou,hou : that |so to make a di{ff}erence betw{'ee}ne the|se words,
[] to bow a bow : to |sow for the |sow : we might write to bou a
[] bow, to |sow for the |sou : And |so out,and ought,and |such like.

[] Sometimes we v|se the |same writing and |sound,in words
[] di{ff}ering in {|si}gnification, as the *hart of the hart panteth.

[] A foule can {fl}ye ouer a foule way.
[] Thou art |skilfull in the art of Grammar.
[] The right eare. Eare thy land,for an eare of corne.
[] My brother May,may liue till may.

[] Sometimes a word is diuer{|sl}y written and |sounded in the
[] |same |sen|se, as many beginning with (in), as intent,informe, or
[] entent,enforme : |so bottell, botle,yerk, or ierk, Iayle or Gaole. So
[] words ending in (i) as monie, iornie, tan{|si}e, or money, iorney,
[] tan|sey. So words ending in (or) {|sh}ort may bee indi{ff}erently
[] written with (or) and (our) as honor, fauor, or honour, fauour,
[] except for,dor,nor,abhor.

Diuers |sound
and writing in
the |same |sen|se.



[] Further,you mu{|st} marke that words of moe then one |syl­

[] lable,ending in this |sound (us) are written with (ous) as glo­
[] rious,friuolous. But words of one |syllable(thus)us, tru{|s|s}e.

[] But to know when a word endeth in (ike) as publike, when
[] in (que) as oblique, being both of one |sound, is hard, without
[] the Latine tongue, from whence mo{|st} of them be borowed.
[] The be{|st} help is deriuation, for we write publike becau|se we
[] |say publication,(for (c) and (k) here be both one) |so Rhetorike,
[] becau|se we |say Rhetorician.

(ike que)

Write tho|se
that end in
(c{us}) in latine
as public{us}
with (k) pub­

that end in (qu{us})

[] The la{|st} thing I would haue you to marke, touching this
[] part of true writing, is to know when to write (y) for (i) the
[] vowell wherein almo{|st} |so many men, |so many minds : |some
[] will haue it before certayne letters, other when it commeth
[] in a diphthong, but more rea|son they haue which write it
[] when another (i) followeth as in |say{.}ing, or in the end of a
[] word |sounded {|sh}arpe, as in deny. But I thinke naturally
[] and truely it ought not to be written but in words borrowed
[] of the Gr{'ee}ke,as hypocrite,myrrhe, my{|st}icall,all which words
[] you {|sh}all {fi}nde in the table, where you {|sh}all {fi}nde no other
[] written with (y) for di{ff}erence |sake, although other where I
[] haue written (y) for (i) without regard, following the v|suall
[] cu{|st}ome.

[] Scho. But Sir, I reade a little before P|salme, and you did
[] not teach me,that P|s. may begin a word.

[] Mai. Well remembred, |such diligent marking what you
[] reade, will |s{oo}ne make you a |scholer: the an|swer is this: That
[] word is borowed from the Grecians, & they d{oo} ioyne con|so­
[] nants that our Engli{|sh} tongue d{oo} not, as Mna|son,Ptolemais,
[] Rhodes : {ct}enes , {|si}gnifying the fower fore teeth: pneuma a |spirit, or
[] breth, cnicus ba{|st}ard |sa{ff}ron. But the|se are very rare, |so we haue
[] many terminations in proper names , and Latine words,
[] which are not v|suall in Engli{|sh}, as fons, aruns, falx, arx. in
[] proper names, alz,anz, arz. &c. Thus alb, is of the Latines :
[] we v|se al|so in Latine {|st}lata, not v|sed in Engli{|sh} : we v|se al|so
[] contra{ct} words in Engli{|sh}, as hangd,for hanged.

[] Scho. Haue I now no more to ob|serue for di{|st}in{ct} reading ?

[] Mai. That which the Gramarians call accent, which is
[] the lifting vp of the voyce higher in one |syllable then in ano­

Accent v|sually
omitted in our
Engli{|sh} printe.


[] ther, which |sometime di{ff}ereth in a word written with the
[] |same letters, as an íncen|se, to incén|se, where (in) in the for­
[] mer word,and cen|se in the latter is lifted vp more.

[] You mu{|st} ob|serue al|so tho|se which w{'ee} call *poynts or
[] {|st}aies in writing:as this marke (,) like a |small halfe M{oo}ne,
[] noteth a |small {|st}ay: two prickes thus (:) maketh a longer
[] {|st}ay,and one pricke thus (.) is put for a full {|st}ay, as if we had

[] o{ff}er you an occa{|si}on to take h{'ee}d, not of the|se onely, but of a­
[] ny like: Some people |speake thus:

[] The mell {|st}andeth on the hell for

[] The mill {|st}andeth on the hill :|so

[] knet for knit : bredg for bridg : knaw for gnaw : knat for gnat :
[] belk for belch : yerb for herb : gri{ff}e for gra{ff}e : yelk for yolk :
[] ream for realm : aferd for afraid : durt for dirt : gurt for girth :
[] {|st}omp for {|st}amp:{|sh}ip for {|sh}eep: hafe for halfe:|sample for example:
[] par{fi}t for perfe{ct} : dauter for daughter : carten for certaine : car­
[] char for carcheife : lea|se for lea{|sh} : hur for hir : |sur and |su{|st}er for
[] {|si}r and {|si}{|st}er,to |spat for to |spit. &c.
[] So doe they commonly put (v) for (f) as feale for veale.

[] And a nox, a na{|s|s}e,my naunt, thy nuncle, for an ox, an a{|s|s}e, mine
[] aunt,thine vncle,&c.

We v|se to put
(n)to the words
(a, my or thy)
when the next
word begin­
neth with a
vowel,to a­
uoyde a ga­
ping ill |sound.


[] Take heed al|so you put not (e) for (i) in the end of a word,
[] as vnitee for vnitie, nor (id) for (ed)as vnitid for vnited,which is
[] Scotti{|sh} : And |some ignorantly write a cup a wine for a cup
[] of wine : and other like ab|surdities.

[] Scho. How {|sh}all I auoyd the|se dangers?

[] Mai. By diligent marking, how you reade them written.

[] Scho. May I then neuer v|se my proper country termes, in [] writing?

[] Mai. Yes : if they be peculiar termes,and not corrupting
[] of words:As the Northren man writing to his priuat neigh­
[] bour may |say : My lathe {|st}andeth n{'ee}re the kirke garth, for My
[] barne {st}andeth n{'ee}re the Churchyard. But if he {|sh}ould write
[] publikely,it is {fi}tte{|st} to v|se the mo{|st} knowne words.

[] Scho. What can now hinder me, why I {|sh}ould not readily
[] and di{|st}in{ct}ly reade any engli{|sh} ?

[] Mai. Nothing at all, (if you throughly be perfe{ct} in this
[] that I haue taught you) vnle{|s|s}e it be want of more pra{ct}i|se,
[] which (although this you haue learned, will |so |su{ff}iciently
[] teach you, that you cannot faile in any word, though you
[] haue neuer any other teacher) yet for your more chearefull
[] proc{'ee}ding, I would wi{|sh} you (if you can conueniently) not
[] to for|sake your mai{|st}er, vntill you haue gone through the|se
[] exerci|ses following, of which I haue made choi|se of all |sorts,
[] both of pro|se and ver|se, that you may not be wanting in any
[] thing.



[] Scho. Sir, I will follow your adui|se, thanke you for your
[] paynes, and craue the Lord his ble{|s|s}ing. And now will I ap­

[] po|se |some of my fellowes,to |see how we can remember |some
[] of the|se things taught.

CHAP. 6.

[] Here is |set downe an order, how the teacher {|sh}all dire{ct} his
[] |schollers to oppo|se one another.

[] Iohn. WHo will aduenture his credite with me in op­
[] po{|si}ng for the vi{ct}orie ?

When your
Scholers {fi}r{|st}
learne this
one read the
another the

[] Robert. I will neither refu|se you nor any in our forme,in
[] any thing we haue learned : begin what you will.

[] Iohn. How |spell you lo?

When your
Scholers op­
po|se one the
other,let the
an|swerer an­
|swer without


[] Robert. l,o.

[] Iohn. Spell of?

[] Robert. o,f.

[] Iohn. Spell from?

[] Robert. f,r,o,m.

[] Iohn. How write you people?

[] Robert. I cannot write.

[] Iohn. I meane not |so,but when I |say write, I meane |spell:
[] for in my meaning they are both one.

[] Robert. Then I an|swer you,that p,e,o,p,l,e.

[] Iohn. What v|se hath (o) for you giue it no |sound?

[] Robert. True : yet we mu{|st} write it, becau|se it is one of
[] the words we learned, wherein (o) is not pronounced.

[] Iohn. Are there any moe of them ?

[] Robert. Yea many, I will repeat them,if you will.

[] Iohn. No,that would be ouer long. But tell me,why pro­
[] nounce you not (e) in the end of people?

[] Robert. It is not pronounced in the end,if there be another
[] vowell in that |syllable.

[] Iohn. To what end then |serueth it ?

[] Robert. We haue learned two principall v|ses: one is, it
[] draweth the |syllable long,as h,a,t. |spelleth hat : but h,a,t,e. is
[] hate.

[] Iohn. How |spell you Ie|sus?

[] Robert. I,e,|s,u,s.

[] Iohn. How know you that it is not written with g.e?

[] Robert. Becau|se it is not in the table at the end of my
[] b{oo}ke : for all that be written with ge, be there, and our mai­
[] {|st}er taught vs that all other of that |sound mu{|st} bee written
[] with Ie.

[] Iohn. How write you Circle ?

[] Robert. S,i,r,c,l,e.

[] Iohn Nay, now you mi{|s|s}e: for if you l{oo}ke in the table,you
[] {|sh}all {fi}nd it Circle. Therefore now you mu{|st} appo|se me.

[] Robert. I confe{|s|s}e mine error,therefore I will try if I can
[] requite it : What |spell b,r,a,n,c,h?

[] Iohn. branch.

[] Robert. Nay,but you {|sh}ould put in (u)
[] Iohn. That |skilleth not,for both waies be vsuall.

[] Robert. How spell you might?
[] Iohn. m,i,g,h,t.

[] Robert. Why put you in (gh) for m,i,t,e. |spelleth mite?

[] Iohn. Truth, but with (gh) is the truer writing , and it
[] {|sh}ould haue a little |sound.

[] Robert. If your |syllable beginneth with (b) what con|so­
[] nants may follow?

[] Iohn. Onely (l) or (r).

[] Robert. Where learne you that ?

[] Iohn. In the third chapter of the {fi}r{|st} b{oo}ke.

[] Robert. And which will follow (g)?

[] Iohn. (l,n,or r)

[] Robert. How proue you it?

[] Iohn. Because g.l.a. |spell gla, and g.n.a. gna, and g.r.a. |spell [] gra.

[] Robert. When thr{'ee} con|sonants begin a |syllable , how
[] {|sh}all I know which they be?

[] Iohn. We haue them before twi|se |set downe, be{|si}des put a
[] vowell vnto them, and |s{'ee} whether they then will |spell any
[] thing,as to str put a,and it |spelleth {|st}ra: but btra will |spell no­
[] thing : therefore they cannot begin a |syllable.

[] Robert. Do not {|st}r |spell {|st}ar?

[] Iohn. It |spelleth nothing without a vowell.

[] Robert. How many |syllables are in this word rewarded?

[] Iohn. Thr{'ee}.

Make your
|scholer reade
ouer this dia­
logue |so often,
vntill he can
do it as readily
& pronounce
it as naturally,
as if he |spake
without book.


[] Robert. How proue you that?

[] Iohn. Becau|se it hath thr{'ee} vowels , without any of the
[] thr{'ee} exceptions.

[] Robert. How diuide you them?

[] Iohn. Re-war-ded.

[] Robert. Why put you w to a?

[] Iohn. Becau|se it is one con|sonant betw{'ee}ne two vowels.

[] Robert. And why diuide you r, and d?

[] Iohn. Becau|se they cannot begin a |syllable.

[] Robert. What is the be{|st} way to |spell a long word, as
[] this, admonition?

[] Iohn. I mu{|st} marke how many |syllables it hath, which I
[] {fi}nd to be {fi}ue, then take the {fi}r{st}, a, d, ad, then take the next,
[] m, o, mo, then put them together, admo, |so |spell and put to
[] the third, admoni,and |so vntill you come vnto the end.

[] Robert. What if a man {|sh}ould bid you write this word ?

[] Iohn. I mu{|st} follow the |same order: {fi}r{|st} write downe ad,
[] then write vnto it mo, admo, then ioyne vnto that ni, admoni,
[] |so the re{|st} admoniti admonition.

[] Robert. What is the be{|st} way to make vs perfe{ct} in |spel­
[] ling hard |syllables ?

[] Iohn. My mai{|st}er doth |sometime pra{ct}i|se vs,in har{sh} coun­
[] terfeit |syllables, through all the {fi}ue vowels, as in thraugh,
[] threugh, thriugh, through, thruugh. Wra{|sh}t, wre{|sh}t, wri{|sh}t,
[] wro{|sh}t, wru{|sh}t. Yarmble, yermble, yirmble, yormble, yurmble.
[] Whaights, wheights, &c. vaigh, veigh, &c. ianch, iench, jinch,
[] ionch, iunch.

[] Robert. What if you cannot tell what vowell to |spell the
[] |syllable with, how will you do to finde it? as if you {|sh}ould
[] write from, and know not whither you {|sh}ould write it with
[] a or o.

[] Iohn. I would trie it with all the vowels thus, fram,frem,
[] frim,from : now I haue it.

[] Robert. But g{oo}d man Taylor our Clarke when I went

[] to |sch{oo}le with him, taught me to |sound the|se vowels other­
[] wi|se then (me thinks) you do.

[] Iohn. How was that?

[] Robert. I remember he taught me the|se |syllables thus: for
[] bad, bed, bid, bod, bud, I learned to |say, bad, bid, bide, bod,
[] bude, |sounding a bed to lye vpon, as to bid, or command, and
[] bid, as bide, long, as in abide : bud of a tr{'ee}, as bude, long, like
[] rude : for the|se thr{'ee} vowels e, i, u, are very corruptly and ig­
[] norantly taught by many vnskilfull teachers, which is the
[] cau|se of |so great ignorance in true writing in tho|se that want
[] the Latine tongue.

Let the vnskil­
full teachers
take great heed
of this fault,
and let |some
good |scholers
heare their
children pro­
nounce the|se


[] Iohn. You |say true : for |so did my Dame teach me to pro­
[] nounce, for |sa, |se, |si, |so, |su, to |say, |sa, |see, |si, |so, |sou : as if {|sh}e had
[] |sent me to |see her |sow, when as(|se){|sh}ould be |sounded like the
[] (|sea) and (|su) as to (|sue) one at the law.

[] Robert. But let me returne to appo|se you : How were we
[] taught to {fi}nd out the naturall |sound of con|sonants ?

[] Iohn. By the |sp{'ee}ch of a {|st}utter or {|st}ammerer,as to marke
[] how he laboureth to* |sound the {fi}r{|st} letter of a word : as if
[] the {st}ammerer would pronounce Lord, before he can bring it
[] f{oo}rth, he expre{|s|s}eth the |sound of (l) which is the {fi}r{|st} letter,
[] and |so of all the other con|sonants.

*For letters
were {fi}r{|st} de­
ui|sed accor­
ding to |sounds


[] Robert. How many waies may you expre{|s|s}e this |sound(|si)?

[] Iohn. Onely thr{'ee} : |si, ci, and |sci, or (xi) which is (c|si)

[] Robert. Now you haue erred as well as I : for (ti) before a
[] vowell doth commonly |sound (|si) , and now I will giue you
[] ouer for this time : but I will challenge you againe to mor­
[] row,both in |some new que{|st}ions, in |some part of that which
[] we haue learned, and al|so after euery le{|s|s}on : and as you are
[] in |saying, I will marke where you mi{|s|s}e, and therein will I
[] deale with you.

[] Iohn. Do your wor{|st}, I wil prouide likewi|se for you:and
[] neuer giue you ouer, untill I haue gotten the vi{ct}orie : for I
[] take not |so much plea|sure in any thing els all day.

[] Robert. I am of your mind : for I haue heard our mai{|st}er
[] |say, that this appo{|si}ng doth very much {|sh}arpen our wits,

[] helpe our memorie, and many other commodities. But now
[] let vs l{oo}ke vnto our Catechi|sme, for our mai{|st}er will exa­
[] mine vs next in that.

[] Iohn. Nay, by your leaue we {|sh}all {fi}r{|st} reade ouer againe
[] all that we haue learned, with the preface, titles of the chap­
[] ters,and notes in the margent of our b{oo}kes, which we omit­
[] ted before, becau|se they were t{oo} hard: for we {|sh}all go no fur­
[] ther before we be perfe{ct} in this.

The end of the |second Booke.

[6.31] How did he create you ?

[6.32] In holine{|s|s}e and righteou|sne{|s|s}e.

[6.33] Why were you thus created ?

[6.34] To glori{fi}e him.



[6.35] Are you able to doe this of your |selfe ?

[6.36] No.



[6.37] Why |so ?

[6.38] Becau|se I am a |sinner.

[6.59] me.


[6.60] 2    Thou |shalt not make to thy |selfe any grauen Image, nor the
[6.61] likenes of any thing that is in Heauen aboue, nor in the earth be­
[6.62] neath nor in the water vnder the earth, thou {|sh}alt not bow down
[6.63] to them,nor wor{|sh}ip them, for I the Lord thy God, am a iealous
[6.64] God,and vi{|si}t the {|si}nnes of the Fathers vpon the Children,vnto the
[6.65] third and fourth generation of them that hate me, and {|sh}ew mer­

[6.67] dements.
[6.68] 3    Thou {|sh}alt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vaine,

[6.75] man|seruant, and thy maid|seruant , thy cattell , and the {|st}ranger
[6.76] that are within thy gates, for in {|si}xe dayes the Lorde made hea­
[6.77] uen and earth, the |sea, and all that in them is, and re{|st}ed the |sea­
[6.78] uenth daye, wherefore the Lord ble{|s|s}ed the |seauenth day,and hal­
[6.79] lowed it.
[6.80] 5    Honour thy Father, and thy Mother,that thy dayes may bee
[6.81] long in the land, which the Lord thy God giueth thee.

[6.103] No,becau|se they be no petitions but commandements.

[6.104] Are you able to keep them, without breaking any one of them, in
[6.105] thought,word,or deede?

[6.106] No.

[6.107] Why?

[6.108] Becau|se I am readie and di|sposed by nature, to offend both God
[6.109] and my neighbour.

[6.118] By Ie|sus Chri{|st}.

Act 4.12.

[6.119] Who is this Chri{|st}?

[6.120] The |sonne of God, perfe{ct} God and perfe{ct} man.

Mat 3.17.

[6.121] Could there no other meane, nor per|son bee found in Heauen or
[6.122] Earth to |saue you, but the |sonne of God mu{|st} doe it?

[6.123] No verely.

[6.124] Mu{|st} he needes be God and man?

[6.125] Yea.

[6.126] Why ?

[6.127] Fir{|st},becau|se he mu{|st} dye for vs,and God cannot dye,therefore he
[6.128] mu{|st} be man.
[6.129] Secondly, he mu{|st} ouercome death, which being onely man,he
[6.130] could not, therefore he mu|st al|so be God.


Heb.2. 14.

[6.131] How did he |saue you ?

[6.132] As he was man * perfe{ct}ly righteous, he performed the perfe{ct} o­
[6.133] bedience of the law,and |satis{fi}ed the *iu{|st}ice of God for me. And
[6.134] as hee was God, hee ouercame death, and ray|sed vp his bodie the
[6.135] third day.

& 2.22.


& 4.1.


[6.136] Are all men partakers of this bene{fi}t of redemption purcha|sed
[6.137] by Christ?

[6.138] No,there are a number that {|sh}all haue their part in hell with the
[6.139] diuell and his Angels.

& 7.23.
Reuel. 22.15.


[6.140] Who are they that haue their part in the death of Chri{|st}?

[6.141] Onely |such as truly beleeue.

[6.142] What is faith ?

[6.143] Faith,is* a full a{|ss}urance of* my |saluation in Ie|sus Chri{|st}*alone.

Iohn 3.16.
*Iohn 1.12.


[6.144] Hath euery man this faith in him|selfe ?

[6.145] No,for it is the * gift of God,and not of *nature.



[6.146] How is faith gotten?

[6.147] By the outward hearing of the worde of God preached,and the in­
[6.148] ward working of the Spirite.


[6.149] How is it {|st}rengthned and increa|sed in you ?

[6.150] By the |same preaching of the word,and the v|se of the Sacraments,
[6.151] and prayer.

A{ct}s 2.41.
A{ct}s 16.14.


[6.152] How {|sh}all a man knowe whether hee haue this true and |sauing
[6.153] faith,or no?

[6.154] By the fruites and markes thereof.

[6.155] What be the fruites of faith?

[6.156] A hatred of all {|si}nne, a continuall care to plea|se GOD in the
[6.157] dueties commaunded,an vnfained loue to Gods word and to his
[6.158] people.

A{ct}s 2.37.
1.Iohn 3.14.


[6.159] Rehear|se the |summe of your Faith ?

[6.160] I beleeue in God the Father almightie, maker of heauen and
[6.161] earth, and in Ie|sus Chri{|st} his onely Sonne our Lord : which was
[6.162] conceiued by the holy Gho{|st},borne of the Virgin Marie, |suf­
[6.163] fered vnder Ponce Pilate, was crucified,dead,and buried, hee de|s­
[6.164] cended into hell, the third day he ro|se againe from the dead, he a|s­
[6.165] cended into heauen,and {|si}tteth on the right hand of God the Fa­
[6.166] ther almightie,from thence hee {|sh}all come to iudge the quicke
[6.167] and the dead. I beleeue in the holy Gho{|st}, the holy Catholique
[6.168] Church,the communion of Saints,the forgiuenes of |sinnes, the re­
[6.169] |surre{ct}ion of the bodie, and the life euerla{|st}ing.Amen.

[6.170] How many parts be there of this Creede?

[6.171] Two.

[6.172] Which be they?

[6.173] The {fi}r{|st} is of God,the |second is of the Church.
[6.174] Let vs now come to the meanes of {|st}rengthning our faith, as
[6.175] of the Sacraments and prayer : and {fi}r{st} what is a Sacra­
[6.176] ment ?

[6.177] A Sacrament is a |seale and pledge of tho|se bene{fi}ts of my |salua­
[6.178] tion, which I receiue by Chri{|st}.

[6.193]   What is the thing {|si}gni{fi}ed?

[6.194] The wa{|sh}ing away of my {|si}nnes by the blood of Chri{|st}.

[6.195]   How is your Faith {|st}rengthened by Bapti|sme?

[6.196] By Bapti|sme I am receiued into the familie and congregation of
[6.197] the Lord,and am thereby fully a{|s|s}ured,that both my {|si}nnes are for­
[6.198] giuen me,and the puni{|sh}ment due to the |same.

[6.214] in v|se they di{ff}er from other common bread and wine, becau|se
[6.215] they be appoynted of God to be {|si}gnes of the bodie and blood of
[6.216] Chri{|st}.

[6.217]   Why then doth Chri{|st} |say ; This is my body?

[6.218] It is a {fi}guratiue |speech v|suall in the Scripture , as circumci{|si}on is
[6.219] called the couenant, the Lambe is called the pa{|s|s}eouer: and yet it
[6.220] is not the couenant,nor the pa{|s|s}eouer,but a {|si}gne of it.

[6.221]   How do you eate Chri{|st}s bodie,and drinke his blood?

[6.222] Spiritually, and by Faith.

[6.223]   Are all per|sons without exception to be admitted to the Supper
[6.224] of the Lord?

[6.225] No.

[6.226]   Who are not to be admitted?

[6.227] Children,Fooles, Mad-men, Ignorant per|sons, knowne heretikes,
[6.228] open and notorious {|si}nners not repenting.

[6.229]   What mu{|st} he doe that will come worthily to the Supper of the
[6.230] Lord?

[6.231] He mu{|st} proue and examine him|selfe.

[6.232]   Wherein mu{|st} he examine him|selfe ?

[6.233] Fir{|st}, what knowledge he hath in the principles of Religion,and
[6.234] e|specially in the matter of the Sacrament.

[6.235]   Secondly, whether he hath true faith in Ie|sus Chri{|st},or no.

[6.236]   Thirdly, whether he bee penitent and |sorie for his {|si}nnes pa{|st},
[6.237] purpo{|si}ng to leaue them,and to liue godlie,endeuouring him|selfe
[6.238] to be in brotherly loue and charitie with all men.

[6.239]   Then it |seemeth there be |some, who albeit they come, yet they
[6.240]    lo|se the bene{fi}t of this communion in them|selues?

[6.241] Yea.

[6.242]   Who be they ?

[6.243] Such as come not in faith, and are not grieued for their {|si}nnes pa{|st},
[6.244] as hypocrites,vnciuill men, Church Papi{|st}s,priuie enemies to Gods
[6.245] word,and |so many of the godlie as come not |su{ffi}ciently prepa­
[6.246] red,procure a puni{|sh}ment.

[6.247]   What is the other helpe you haue to increa|se Faith ?

[6.248] Prayer.

[6.249]   What is prayer ?

[6.250] Prayer,is a |spirituall a{ct}ion of Faith wherein we require of God



Iohn 6.63.










[6.251] in the name of Chri{|st},all things nece{|s|s}arie,his glorie and our com­
[6.252] fort.

[6.253]   To whom mu{|st} you pray ?

[6.254] To God only.

[6.255]   In who|se name ?

[6.256] In the name of Chri{|st}.

[6.257]   Then you may not pray to Saints,or Angels, or to God in the
[6.258] name of a Saint or Angell ?

[6.259] No.

[6.260]   Why ?

[6.261] Becau|se there is neither commandement,promi|se,nor example in
[6.262] the Scripture for it.

[6.263]   How mu{|st} you pray ?

[6.264] As Chri{|st} hath taught me,|saying:

[6.265]   Our Father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name. Thy
[6.266] kingdome come, thy will be done in earth as it is in heauen. Giue
[6.267] vs this day our daily bread. And forgiue vs our tre|spa{|s|s}es. As we
[6.268] forgiue them that tre|spa{|s|s}e again{|st} vs. And lead vs not into temp­
[6.269] tation. But deliuer vs from all euill : for thine is the kingdome, the
[6.270] power and glorie,for euer. Amen.

[6.271]   How many petitions be there in this prayer ?

[6.272] Sixe,three concerning the glorie of God, and three our owne ne­
[6.273] ce{|s|si}ties.

[6.274]   What are the|se words; Our Father which art in heauen ?

[6.275] A preface or introdu{ct}ion to the prayer.

[6.276]   What are the|se words : For thine is the kingdome , the power and
[6.277] glorie for euer ?

[6.278] The conclu{|si}on of the prayer.

[6.279]   What do you owe to God for all his bene{fi}ts ?

[6.280] Thank|sgiuing.

[6.281]   Is it enough that you thanke him with your lips alone ?

[6.282] No,but I mu{|st} bee obedient to his lawes and commaundements :
[6.283] which grace the Lord graunt. Amen.

A Prayer framed according to this

[8.1] ALmightie God and mo{|st} mercifull father in Ie|sus Chri{|st}, as
[8.2] thou ha{|st} plainly |set before vs our cur|sed e{|st}ate,in the cleare
[8.3] gla{|s|s}e of thy heauenly word,|so we be|seech thee to open our
[8.4] eyes to |see it,and pierce our hearts to feele it, by the inward wor­
[8.5] king of the holy |spirit. For wee O Lorde,are mo{|st} vaine and vile
[8.6] creatures,iu{|st}ly tainted with the rebellion of our {fi}r{|st} parents,con­
[8.7] ceiued in {|si}nne,bond{|sl}aues of |satan, nece{|s|s}arily, and yet willingly
[8.8] |seruing diuers lu{|st}s,and committing innumerable {|si}ns again{|st} thy


[8.9] Maie{|st}ie, whereby we de|serue mo{|st} iu{|st}ly to endure all mi|series in
[8.10] this life, and to be tormented in hell for euer. But ble{|s|s}ed bee thy
[8.11] name O Lord our God, who when there was no power in vs, no,
[8.12] not |so much as any de{|si}re or endeuor to get out of this wofull e­
[8.13] {|st}ate,ha{|st} made vs |see and feele, in what ca|se wee were, and proui­
[8.14] ded a mo{|st} |soueraigne remedie for vs, euen thy deare and onely
[8.15] begotten Sonne,whome thou ha{|st} freely o{ff}ered vnto vs,not onely
[8.16] kindling in vs a de{|si}re to enioy him, but enabling vs by a true and
[8.17] liuely faith,to lay hold vpon him, and to be partakers of all his be­
[8.18] ne{fi}ts, to the |saluation of our |soules. And now O Lorde, that it
[8.19] hath plea|sed thee, by faith to ioyne vs to thy |sonne Ie|sus Chri{|st},
[8.20] and by thy |spirit, to make vs members of his body : wee humbly
[8.21] be|seech thee,by the |same |spirite, to renewe vs daily according to
[8.22] thine owne image. Worke in our hearts a daily increa|se of true
[8.23] faith, and repentance, and in our liues a holy and comfortable
[8.24] change. O Lord enable vs in |some good mea|sure, to walke wor­
[8.25] thie of all thy mercies , and to |serue thee , who ha{|st} created and
[8.26] cho|sen vs,and thy Sonne, who hath redeemed vs from death, and
[8.27] made vs heires of glorie,and thy ble{|s|s}ed |spirit, who doth continu­
[8.28] ally |san{ct}i{fi}e and keepe vs, with faith, feare, and zeale, in true holi­
[8.29] ne{|s|s}e,and righteou|sne{|s|s}e all the dayes of our life. Finally,|seeing of
[8.30] thine in{fi}nite goodne{|s|s}e and mercie, thou ha{|st} appoynted diuers
[8.31] excellent and holy meanes for the daily encrea|se of thy graces in
[8.32] vs,and for the con{fi}rming and quickning of vs in a Chri{|st}ian con­
[8.33] uer|sation, we humbly be|seech thee,to grant al tho|se good meanes
[8.34] vnto vs,and to continue them among{|st} vs, giuing vs grace to v|se
[8.35] them purely, con{|st}antly and zealou{|sl}y, to the glorie of thy name,
[8.36] pro{fi}t of our brethren, and |saluation of our |soules, through Ie|sus
[8.37] Chri{|st},to whom with thee O Father,and the holy Gho{|st}, be giuen
[8.38] all honor and glory for euer, Amen.



A thanke|sgiuing before meate.

[9.1] O My heauenly Father, I thank thee through Ie|sus Chri{|st} for ma­
[9.2] king the|se creatures to |serue mee, and for giuing mee leaue to
[9.3] feede on them: now I humbly pray thee to giue mee grace mode­
[9.4] rately and |soberly to v|se them,that my bodily health may bee {|st}ill

[9.5] continued to thy glorie,the good of others,and mine owne com­
[9.6] fort in Chri{|st} Ie|sus, Amen.

A thanke|sgiuing a{ft}er meate.

[10.1] O Lord,feeling my bodie to be refre{|sh}ed with meate and drink,
[10.2] and my minde al|so {fi}tter to doe tho|se things which thou re­
[10.3] quire{|st} of me:let it now bee my meate to doe thy will, and tho|se
[10.4] workes which belong to my dutie with all cheerefulnes and good
[10.5] con|science, that for the|se and all other thy mercies, my thankful­
[10.6] ne{|s|s}e in heart, word and deede, may bee acceptable in thy {|si}ght to
[10.7] the ende of my life, through Ie|sus Chri{|st},to whom with thee and
[10.8] the holy Gho{|st} be all honour,glorie, and thank|sgiuing now and
[10.9] for euer, Amen.

A Prayer for the Morning.

[11.1] O Lord God our heauenly father , wee thy poore and wretched
[11.2] creatures, giue thee mo{|st} humble and heartie thanks for our
[11.3] quiet and |safe {|sl}eepe, and for rai{|si}ng vs vp from the |same. We be­
[11.4] |seech thee for Ie|sus Chri{|st}es |sake, to pro|sper vs this daye in our la­
[11.5] bour and trauell,that it may be to the di|scharging of our dutie in
[11.6] our vocations, principally to thy glorie, next to the pro{fi}t of this
[11.7] Church and common-weale, and la{|st} of all to the bene{fi}te and
[11.8] content of our Mai{|st}ers. Graunt deare Father, that we may chere­
[11.9] fully and con|scionably doe our bu{|si}ne{|s|s}e and labours , not as
[11.10] men-plea|sers, but as |seruing thee our God, knowing thee to bee
[11.11] the chiefe mai{|st}er of vs,and that thou |see{|st} and beholde{|st} vs with
[11.12] thy fatherly eyes, who ha{|st} promi|sed reward to them that faithful-
[11.13] ly and truely walke in their vocation, and threatned euerla{|st}ing
[11.14] death and damnation to them that deceitfully and wickedly doe
[11.15] their workes and labours. We be|seech thee O heauenly father, to
[11.16] giue vs the {|st}rength of thy |spirit, that godly and gladly we may o­
[11.17] uercome our labours,and that the tediou|sne{|s|s}e of this irk|some, la­
[11.18] bour which thou for our {|si}nnes ha{|st} powred vpon all mankinde,
[11.19] may |seeme to vs dele{ct}able and |sweete. Ful{fi}ll now O Lord the|se
[11.20] our reque{|st}s,for thy |sonne our Sauiours |sake, in who|se name wee
[11.21] pray as he him|selfe hath taught vs. Our Father,&c.

A Prayer for the Euening.

[12.1] MO{|st} mercifull God and tender Father, which be{|si}des thine in­
[12.2] e{|st}imable mercies declared and giuen vnto vs in the making
[12.3] of the world for our |sakes, in the redeeming of vs by the death of
[12.4] thy deare Sonne Ie|sus Chri{|st},in the calling of vs to the knowledge
[12.5] of thy ble{|s|s}ed worde,in keeping of vs hitherto in thy holy Church,
[12.6] and in thy mo{|st} gratious gouerning of vs, and all things hitherto
[12.7] for our {|si}ngular wealth and commoditie, ha{|st} al|so mo{|st} fatherly
[12.8] cared for vs,and kept vs this day from all daungers both of |soule
[12.9] and body, giuing vs health, foode, apparell, and all other things
[12.10] nece{|s|s}ary for the comfort and |succour of this poore and mi|serable
[12.11] life, which many other doe want:for the|se and all other thy good
[12.12] gi{ft}es and gracious bene{fi}tes, which thou of thine owne goodnes
[12.13] onely and fatherly prouidence, ha{|st} hitherto powred vpon vs,and
[12.14] doe{|st} pre|sently powre vpon vs and many other, we mo{|st} humbly
[12.15] thanke thee and prai|se thy holy name , be|seeching thee, that as
[12.16] all things are now hidden by meanes of the darkene{|s|s}e which thou
[12.17] ha{|st} |sent ouer the earth, |so thou woulde{|st} vouch|safe to hide and
[12.18] burie all our {|si}nnes, which this day or at any time heretofore wee
[12.19] haue committed again{|st} thy holy commaundements: and as now
[12.20] we purpo|se to lay our bodies to re{|st}, |so graunt the garde of thy
[12.21] good Angels to keepe the |same this night and for euermore : and
[12.22] when|soeuer our la{|st} {|sl}eepe of death {|sh}all come,graunt that it may
[12.23] be in thee good Father, |so that our bodies may re{|st} both tempo-
[12.24] rally and eternally, to thy glorie and our ioy through Ie|sus Chri{|st}
[12.25] our Lorde. So be it.

[14.5]    3     For I was my fathers |sonne, tender and deare in the {|si}ght of
[14.6] my mother.

[14.7]    4     When he taught me , and |said vnto me, Let thine heart hold
[14.8] fa{|st} my words:keep my commaundements,and thou {|sh}alt liue.

[14.9]    5     Get wi|sdome:get vnder{|st}anding : forget not,neither decline
[14.10] from the words of my mouth.

[14.11]    6     For|sake her not, and {|sh}e {|sh}all keepe thee : loue her, and {|sh}ee
[14.12] {|sh}all pre|serue thee.

[14.13]    7     Wi|sedome is the beginning: get wi|sedome therefore : and a­

[14.14] boue all thy po{|s|s}e{|s|s}ion get vnder{|st}anding.

[14.15]    8     Exalt her,and {|sh}e {|sh}all exalt thee:{|sh}e {|sh}all bring thee to ho­
[14.16] nor,if thou embrace her.

[14.17]    9     Shee {|sh}all giue a comely ornament vnto thine head, yea, {|sh}e
[14.18] {|sh}all giue thee a crowne of glory.

[14.19]    10     Heare my |sonne, and receiue my words, and the yeares of
[14.20] thy life {|sh}all be many.

[14.21]    11     I haue taught thee in the way of wi|sdome,and led thee in the
[14.22] paths of righteou|snes.

[14.23]    12     When thou goe{|st},thy gate {|sh}all not be {|st}raight, and when
[14.24] thou runne{|st} thou {|sh}alt not fall.

[14.25]    13     Take hold of in{|st}ru{|ct}ion, and leaue not : keepe her, for {|sh}e
[14.26] is thy life.

[14.27]    14     Enter not into the way of the wicked, and walke not in the
[14.28] way of euill men.

[14.29]    15     Auoyde it,and goe not by it:turne from it,and pa{|s|s}e by.

[14.30]    16     For they cannot {|sl}eepe,except they haue done euill,& their
[14.31] {|sl}eepe departeth,except they cau|se |some to fall.

[14.32]    17     For they eate the bread of wickednes, and drinke the wine
[14.33] of violence.

[14.34]    18     But the way of the righteous {|sh}ineth as the light that {|sh}i­
[14.35] neth more and more vnto the per{fi}te day.

[14.36]    19     The way of the wicked is as the darknes : they knowe not
[14.37] wherein they {|sh}all fall.

[14.38]    20     My sonne,hearken vnto my words, incline thine eare vnto
[14.39] my |sayings.

[14.40]    21     Let them not depart from thine eyes,but keepe them in the
[14.41] midde{|st} of thine heart.

[14.42]    22     For they are life vnto tho|se that {fi}nde them,and health vnto
[14.43] all their fle{|sh}.

[14.44]    23     Keepe thy heart with all diligence:for thereout commeth life.

[14.45]    24     Put away from thee a froward mouth, and put wicked lips
[14.46] farre from thee.

[14.47]    25     Let thine eyes beholde the right,and let thine ey-lids dire{ct}
[14.48] the way before thee.

[14.49]    26     Ponder the path of thy feete,and let all thy waies be ordered
[14.50] aright.

[14.51]    27 Turne not to the right hand, nor to the left,but remoue thy
foote from euill.

The {fi}r{st} P|salme.

[15.1] THe man is ble{|st} that hath not bent,
[15.2]    to wicked rede his eare :
[15.3] Nor led his life as {|si}nners doe,
[15.4]    nor |sat in |scorners chayre.
[15.5] 2     But in the law of God the Lord,
[15.6]    doth |set his whole delight:
[15.7] And in that law doth exerci|se
[15.8]    him|selfe both day and night.

[15.9] 3     He {|sh}all be like the tree that groweth,
[15.10]    fa{|st} by the water {|si}de :
[15.11] Which bringeth forth mo{|st} plea|sant fruite
[15.12]    in her due time and tide.
[15.13] 4     Who|se leafe {|sh}all neuer fade nor fall,
[15.14]    but {fl}ouri|sh {|st}ill and {|st}and :
[15.15] Euen |so all things {|sh}all pro|sper well,
[15.16]    that this man takes in hand.

[15.17] 5     So {|sh}all not the vngodly men,
[15.18]    they {|sh}all be nothing |so :
[15.19] But as the du{|st} which from the earth,
[15.20]    the windes driue to and fro.
[15.21] 6     Therefore {|sh}all not the wicked men,
[15.22]    in iudgement {|st}and vpright :
[15.23] Nor yet the {|si}nners with the iu{|st},
[15.24]    {|sh}all come in place or {|si}ght.

[15.25] 7     For why? the way of godly men,
[15.26]    vnto the Lord is knowne :
[15.27] And eke the way of wicked men,
[15.28]    {|sh}all quite be ouerthrowne.

The 4. P|salme.

[16.1] O God that art my righteou|sne{|s|s}e,
[16.2]    Lord heare me when I call :
[16.3] Thou ha{|st} |set me at libertie,
[16.4]    when I was bound and thrall.
[16.5] 2     Haue mercie Lord therefore on me,
[16.6]    and grant me my reque{|st} :
[16.7] For vnto thee vnce{|s|s}antly
[16.8]    to crie I will not re{|st}.

[16.9] 3     O mortall men how long will ye
[16.10]    my glorie thus de|spi|se ?
[16.11] Why wander ye in vanitie,
[16.12]    and follow after lyes?
[16.13] 4     Know ye that good and godly men,
[16.14]    the Lord doth take and chu|se :
[16.15] And when to him I make my plaint,
[16.16]    he doth me not refu|se.

[16.17] 5     Sinne not but {|st}and in awe therefore,
[16.18]    examine well your heart :
[16.19] And in your chamber quietly,
[16.20]    |see you your |selues conuert.
[16.21] 6     O{ff}er to God the |sacri{fi}ce
[16.22]    of righteou|sne{|s|s}e I |say :
[16.23] And looke that in the liuing Lord,
[16.24]    you put your tru{|st} alway.

[16.25] 7     The greater |sort craue worldly goods,
[16.26]    and riches do embrace :
[16.27] But Lord grant vs thy countenance,
[16.28]    thy fauour and thy grace.
[16.29] 8     For thou thereby {|sh}alt make my heart
[16.30]    more ioyfull and more glad,
[16.31] Then they that of their corne and wine
[16.32]    full great increa|se haue had.

[16.33] 9     In peace therefore lie downe will I,
[16.34]    taking my re{|st} and {|sl}eepe :
[16.35] For thou onely wilt me O Lord
[16.36]    alone in |safetie keepe.

The 50. P|salme.

[17.1] THe mightie God,
[17.2]    th'eternall hath thus |spoke:
[17.3] And all the world
[17.4]    he will call and prouoke:
[17.5] Euen from the Ea{|st},
[17.6]    and |so foorth to the We{|st}.
[17.7] 2     From toward Sion
[17.8]    which place him liketh be{|st}:
[17.9] God will appeare
[17.10]    in beautie mo{|st} excellent :
[17.11] 3     Our God will come
[17.12]    before that long time be |spent.

[17.13] Deuouring {fi}re
[17.14]    {|sh}all goe before his face :
[17.15] A great tempe{|st}
[17.16]    {|sh}all round about him trace.
[17.17] 4     Then {|sh}all he call
[17.18]    the earth and heauens bright :
[17.19] To iudge his folke,
[17.20]    with equitie and right.
[17.21] 5     Saying go to,
[17.22]    and now my Saints a{|s|s}emble :
[17.23] My peace they keepe,
[17.24]    their gifts do not di{|s|s}emble.

[17.25] 6     The heauens {|sh}all
[17.26]    declare his righteousne{|s|s}e :
[17.27] For God is iudge
[17.28]    of all things more or le{|s|s}e.

[17.29] 7     Heare my people,
[17.30]    for I will now reueale :
[17.31] Li{|st} I|srael,
[17.32]    I will thee nought conceale :
[17.33] Thy God,thy God
[17.34]    am I,and will not blame thee :
[17.35] 8     For giuing not
[17.36]    all manner o{ff}rings to me.

[17.37] 9     I haue no neede
[17.38]    to take of thee at all,
[17.39] Goates of thy fold,
[17.40]    or calfe out of thy {|st}all.
[17.41] 10     For all the bea{|st}s
[17.42]    are mine within the woods:
[17.43] On thou|sand hils,
[17.44]    cattell are mine owne goods.
[17.45] 11     I know for mine,
[17.46]    all birds that are on mountaines:
[17.47] All bea{|st}s are mine,
[17.48]    which haunt the {fi}elds and fountaines.

The 51. P|salme,the fir{|st} part.

[18.1] O Lord con{|si}der my di{|st}re{|s|s}e,
[18.2]    and now with |speed |some pitie take:
[18.3] My {|si}nnes deface, my faultes redre{|s|s}e,
[18.4]    good Lord for thy great mercies |sake.
[18.5] 2     Wa{|sh} me(O Lord)and make me cleane,
[18.6]    from this vniu{|st} and {|si}nfull a{ct}:
[18.7] And puri{fi}e yet once againe,
[18.8]    my hainous crime and bloody fa{|ct}.

[18.9] 3     Remor|se and |sorow doth con{|st}raine

[18.11] My {|si}nnes alas do {|st}ill remaine
[18.12]    before my face without relea|se.

[18.13] 4     For thee alone I haue o{ff}ended,
[18.14]    committing euill in thy {|si}ght:
[18.15] And if I were therefore condemned,
[18.16]    yet were thy iudgements iu{|st} and right.

[18.17] 5     It is too manife{|st} alas,
[18.18]    that fir{|st} I was conceiued in {|si}nne:
[18.19] Yea of my mother |so borne was,
[18.20]    and yet vile wretch remaine therein.
[18.21] 6     Al|so behold Lord thou doe{|st} loue
[18.22]    the inward truth of a pure heart :
[18.23] Therefore thy wi|sedome from aboue
[18.24]    thou ha{|st} reuealed me to conuert.

[18.25] 7     If thou with I|sope purge this blot,
[18.26]    I {|sh}all be cleaner then the gla{|s|s}e:
[18.27] And if thou wa{|sh} away my |spot,
[18.28]    the |snow in whitene{|s|s}e {|sh}all I pa{|s|s}e.
[18.29] 8     Therefore O Lord |such ioy me |send,
[18.30]    that inwardly I may {fi}nd grace:
[18.31] And that my |strength may now amend,
[18.32]    which thou ha{|st} |swagde for my tre|spa{|s|s}e.

[18.33] 9     Turne backe thy face and frowning ire,
[18.34]    for I haue felt enough thy hand:
[18.35] And purge my {|si}nnes I thee de{|si}re,
[18.36]    which do in number pa{|s|s}e the |sand.
[18.37] 10     Make new my heart within my bre{|st},
[18.38]    and frame it to thy holy will :
[18.39] Thy con{|st}ant |spirit in me let re{|st},
[18.40]    which may the|se raging enemies kill.

The 67. P|salme.

[19.1] HAue mercie on vs Lord,
[19.2]    and graunt to vs thy grace :
[19.3] To {|sh}ew to vs do thou accord,

[19.5] 2     That all the earth may know
[19.6]    the way to godly wealth :
[19.7] And all the nations on a row
[19.8]    may |see thy |sauing health.

[19.9] 3     Let all the world O God,
[19.10]    giue prai|se vnto thy name :
[19.11] O let the people all abroad,
[19.12]    extoll and laud the |same.
[19.13] 4     Throughout the world |so wide,
[19.14]    let all reioyce with mirth :
[19.15] For thou with trueth and right doe{|st} guide
[19.16]    the nations of the earth.

[19.17] 5     Let all the world O God,
[19.18]    giue prai|se vnto thy name :
[19.19] O let the people all abroad,
[19.20]    extoll and laud the |same.
[19.21] 6     Then {|sh}all the earth encrea|se,
[19.22]    great {|st}ore of fruit {|sh}all fall :
[19.23] And then our God the God of peace,
[19.24]    {|sh}all ble{|s|s}e vs eke withall.

[19.25] 7     God {|sh}all vs ble{|s|s}e I |say,
[19.26]    and then both farre and neare,
[19.27] The folke throughout the earth alway,
[19.28]    of him {|sh}all {|st}and in feare.

The 104. P|salme,the {fi}r{|st} part.

[20.1] MY Soule prai|se the Lord,
[20.2]    |speake good of his name :
[20.3] O Lord our great God,
[20.4]    how doe{|st} thou appeare?
[20.5] So pa|ssing in glorie,
[20.6]    that great is thy fame ?
[20.7] Honour and maie{|st}ie
[20.8]    in thee {|sh}ine mo{|st} cleare.

[20.1] With light as a robe,
[20.2]     thou ha{|st} thee be clad,
[20.3] Whereby all the earth
[20.4]     thy greatnes may |see.
[20.5] The Heauens in |such |sort,
[20.6]     thou al|so ha{|st} |spread,
[20.7] That it to a curtaine,
[20.8]     compared may be.

[20.9] 3     His chamber beames lye
[20.10]     in the clowdes full |sure,
[20.11] Which as his Chariots
[20.12]     are made him to beare :
[20.13] And there with much |swiftne{|s|s}e,
[20.14]     his cour|se doth endure,
[20.15] Vpon the wings riding
[20.16]     of winde in the ayre.
[20.17] 4     He maketh his |spirits,
[20.18]     as Heralds to go,
[20.19] And lightnings to |serue,
[20.20]     we |see al|so pre{|st} :
[20.21] His will to accompli{|sh},
[20.22]     they runne to and fro,
[20.23] To |saue or con|sume things,
[20.24]     as |seemeth him be{|st}.

[20.25] 5     He grounded the earth
[20.26]     |so {fi}rmely and fa{|st},
[20.27] That it once to moue,
[20.28]     none {|sh}all haue |such powers.
[20.29] 6     The deepe a faire couering
[20.30]     for it made thou ha{|st} :
[20.31] Which by his owne nature,
[20.32]     the hils would deuoure.
[20.33] 7     But at thy rebuke,
[20.34]     the waters do {fl}y,
[20.35] And |so giue due place,

[20.36]     thy word to obey :
[20.37] At thy voyce of thunder,
[20.38]     |so fearefull they be,
[20.39] That in their great raging,
[20.40]     they ha{|st} |soone away.

[20.41] 8     The mountaines full hye,
[20.42]     they then vp a|scend,
[20.43] If thou do but |speake,
[20.44]     thy word they ful{fi}ll:
[20.45] So likewi|se the vallyes,
[20.46]     mo{|st} quickly de|scend,
[20.47] Where thou them appoynte{|st}
[20.48]     remaine they do {|st}ill.
[20.49] 9     Their bounds thou ha{|st} |set,
[20.50]     how farre they {|sh}all run,
[20.51] So as in their rage,
[20.52]     not that pa{|s|s}e they can :
[20.53] For God hath appoynted,
[20.54]     they |shall not returne
[20.55] The earth to de{|st}roy more,
[20.56]     which made was for man.

The 112. P|salme.

[21.57] THe man is ble{|st} that God doth feare,
[21.58]     And that his lawes doth loue indeed :
[21.59] 2     His |seede on earth God will vpreare,
[21.60] And ble{|s|s}e |such as from him proceed.
[21.61] 3     His hou|se with good he will ful{fi}ll,
[21.62] His righteou|sne{|s|s}e endure {|sh}all {|st}ill.

[21.63] 4     Vnto the righteous doth ari|se,
[21.64] In trouble ioy,in darknes light,
[21.65] Compa{|s|si}on is in his eyes,
[21.66] And mercie alwaies in his {|si}ght :
[21.67] 5     Yea pitie moueth |such to lend,
[21.68] He doth by iudgement things expend.

[21.69] 6     And |surely |such {|sh}all neuer faile,
[21.70] For in remembrance had is he.
[21.71] 7     No tydings ill can make him quaile,
[21.72] Who in the Lord |sure hope doth |see.
[21.73] 8     His heart is {fi}rme,his feare is pa{|st},
[21.74] For he {|sh}all |see his foes downe ca{|st}.

[21.75] 9     He did well for the poore to prouide,
[21.76] His righteou|sne{|s|s}e {|sh}all {|st}ill remaine :
[21.77] And his e{|st}ate with prai|se abide,
[21.78] Though that the wicked man di|sdaine.
[21.79] 10     Yea gna{|sh} his teeth thereat {|sh}all he,
[21.80] And |so con|sume his {|st}ate to |see.

The 113. P|salme.

[22.1] YE children which doe |serue the Lord,
[22.2]     Prai|se ye his name with one accord,
[22.3] Yea ble{|s|s}ed be alwayes his name.
[22.4] 3     Who from the ri{|si}ng of the Sun,
[22.5] Till it returne where it begun,
[22.6]     Is to be prai|sed with great fame.

[22.7] 4     The Lord all people doth |surmount,
[22.8] As for his glorie we may count,
[22.9]     Aboue the heauens high to be.
[22.10] 5     With God the Lord who may compare,
[22.11] Who|se dwellings in the heauens are?
[22.12]     Of |such great power and force is he.

[22.13] 6     He doth aba|se him|selfe we know,
[22.14] Things to behold both here below,
[22.15]     And al|so in heauen aboue.
[22.16] 7     The needy out of du{|st} to draw,
[22.17] And eke the poore which helpe none |saw,
[22.18]     His only mercie did him moue.
[22.19] 8     And |so him |set in high degree,
[22.20] With Princes of great dignitie,
[22.21]     That rule his people with great fame.

[22.22] 9     The barren he doth make to beare,
[22.23] And with great ioy her fruit to reare,
[22.24]     Therefore prai|se ye his holy name.

The 120. P|salme.

[23.1] IN trouble and in thrall,
[23.2]     Vnto the Lord I call,
[23.3]      And he doth me comfort.
[23.4] 2     Deliuer me I |say,
[23.5] From lyers lips alway,
[23.6]     And tongues of fal|se report.

[23.7] 3     What vauntage or what thing,
[23.8] Gets thou thus for to {|st}ing,
[23.9]     Thou fal|se and {fl}attering lyer?
[23.10] 4     Thy tongue doth hurt I weene,
[23.11] No le{|s|s}e then arrowes keene,
[23.12]     Of hote con|suming {fi}re.

[23.13] 5     Alas too long I |slack,
[23.14] Within the|se tents |so black,
[23.15]     Which Kedars are by name:
[23.16] By whom the {fl}ock ele{ct},
[23.17] And all of I|saacks |se{ct},
[23.18]     Are put to open {|sh}ame.

[23.19] 6     With them that peace did hate,
[23.20] I came a peace to make,
[23.21]     And |set a quiet life :
[23.22] 7     But when my word was told,
[23.23] Cau|seles I was controld,
[23.24]     By them that would haue {|s}trife.

The 126. P|salme.

[24.1] VVHen that the Lord
[24.2]     againe his Sion had forth brought,

[24.3] From bondage great
[24.4]     and al|so |seruitude extreame:
[24.5] His workes was |such,
[24.6]     as did |surmount mans heart and thought,
[24.7] So that we were
[24.8]     much like to them that dreame :
[24.9] Our mouthes were with
[24.10]     laughter {fi}lled then,
[24.11] And eke our tongues
[24.12]     did {|sh}ew vs ioyfull men.

[24.13] 2     The Heathen folke,
[24.14]     were forced then this to confe{|s|s}e,
[24.15] How that the Lord
[24.16]     for them al|so great things had done.
[24.17] 3     But much more we,
[24.18]     and therefore can confe{|s|s}e no le{|s|s}e,
[24.19] Wherefore to ioy
[24.20]     we haue good cau|se as we begun.
[24.21] 4     O Lord go forth,
[24.22]     thou can{|st} our bondage end :
[24.23] As to de|serts
[24.24]     the {fl}owing riuers |send.

[24.25] 5     Full true it is
[24.26]     that they which |sow in teares indeed,
[24.27] A time will come
[24.28]     when they {|sh}all reape in mirth and ioy:
[24.29] 6     They went and wept
[24.30]     in bearing of their precious |seede:
[24.31] For that their foes,
[24.32]     full oftentimes did them annoy.
[24.33] But their returne
[24.34]     with ioy they {|sh}all |sure |see :
[24.35] Their {|sh}eaues home bring,
[24.36]     and not impayred be.


[25.1] GIue laud vnto the Lord,
[25.2]     From heauen that is |so hye :
[25.3] Prai|se him indeed and word,
[25.4] Aboue the {|st}arrie skie.

[25.5]      2 And al|so yee,
[25.6] His Angels all,
[25.7] Armies royall,
[25.8]      Prai|se him with glee.

[25.9] 3     Prai|se him both Sunne and Moone,
[25.10] Which are |so cleere and bright :
[25.11] The |same of you be done,
[25.12] Ye gli{|st}ring {|st}ars of light.

[25.13]      4 And eke no le{|s|s}e
[25.14] Ye heauens faire,
[25.15] And clowdes of the aire,
[25.16]      His laud expre{|s|s}e.

[25.17] 5         For at his word they were
[25.18] All formed as we |see :
[25.19] At his voyce did appeare
[25.20] All things in their degree.

[25.21]      6 Which he |set fa{|st},
[25.22] To them he made
[25.23] A law and trade,
[25.24]      For aye to la{|st}.

The Schoole-mai{st}er to his Scholers.

[26.1] MY child and |scholer,take good heed,
[26.2]      vnto the words which here are |set :
[26.3] And |see you do accordingly,
[26.4]     or els be |sure you {|sh}all be beat.

[26.5] Fir{|st}, I commaund thee God to |serue,
[26.6]     then to thy parents dutie yeeld:

[26.7] Vnto all men be curteous,
[26.8]     and mannerly in towne and {fi}eld.

[26.9] Your cloathes vnbuttoned do not v|se,
[26.10]     let not your ho|se vngartered be:
[26.11] Haue handkerchiefe in readines,
[26.12]     wa{|sh} hands and face,or |see not me.

[26.13] Lo|se not your bookes,inkhorne nor pen,
[26.14]     nor girdle,garters,hat nor band :
[26.15] Let {|sh}oes be tied,pin {|sh}irtband clo|se,
[26.16]     keepe well your poynts at any hand.

[26.17] If broken ho|sed or {|sh}ooed you goe,
[26.18]     or {|sl}ouenly in your array:
[26.19] Without a girdle,or vntru{|st},
[26.20]     then you and I mu{|st} make a fray.

[26.21] If that you crie,or talke aloud,
[26.22]     or bookes do rend,or {|st}rike with knife,
[26.23] Or laugh, or play vnlawfully,
[26.24]     then you and I mu{|st} be at {|st}rife.

[26.25] If that you cur|se,mi|scall,or |sweare,
[26.26]     if that you pick,{fi}lch,{|st}eale or lie :
[26.27] If you forget a |scholers part,
[26.28]     then mu{|st} you |sure your poynts vntie.

[26.29] If to the |schoole you do not goe,
[26.30]     when time doth call you to the |same :
[26.31] Or if you loyter in the {|st}reetes,
[26.32]  when we do meet,then look for blame.

[26.33] Wherefore (my child) behaue thy |selfe
[26.34]     |so decently at all a{|s|s}aies,
[26.35] That thou mai{|st} purcha|se parents loue,
[26.36]     and eke obtaine thy mai{|st}ers prai|se.

The {fi}r{|st} part of Arithmeticke

[27.1]       ALl nombers are made by the diuer|se placing of the|se nine Fi­
[27.2]       gures. 1.   2.   3.   4.   5.   6.   7.   8.   9.   and this circle
[27.3]      (o)called a cypher. Now looke howe many of the|se {|st}ande toge­
[27.4]       ther, in |so many |seuerall places they mu{|st} needs {|st}and. But marke
[27.5]       that thou call that which is next the right hand, the {fi}r{|st} place, and
[27.6]       |so goe (as it were) backeward, calling the next vnto him, toward
[27.7]       the left hand, the |second place, the next, the third place. And |so
[27.8]       forth, as farre as thou wilt. Secondly, the further any Figure {|st}an­
[27.9]       deth from the {fi}r{|st} place, the greater he is : euery following place
[27.10]     being greater by tenne times, then that next before, as (5) in the
[27.11]     {fi}r{|st} place is but {fi}ue, but in the seconde place , tenne times {fi}ue,
[27.12]     that is, {fi}ue times tenne, which is {fi}ftie. In the third place, {fi}ue hun­
[27.13]     dreth. In the fourth place, {fi}ue thou|sand. And in the {fi}{ft} place,
[27.14]     {fi}fty thou|sand. And |so thou maye{|st} proceed. As for example:this
[27.15]     nomber thus placed: 1596. beeing this pre|sent yeere from the
[27.16]     birth of Chri{|st}, is one thou|sand, {fi}ue hundreth, ninetie, {|si}x. And
[27.17]     this nomber 5524. being this pre|sent yeere from the Creation
[27.18]     (though otherwi|se commonly taken) is {fi}ue thou|sande, {fi}ue hun­
[27.19]     dreth, twenty foure. But my booke growing greater then I pur­
[27.20]     po|sed : pardon me (I pray thee) though I breake o{ff} this matter,
[27.21]     |sooner then (peraduenture thou maye{|st} thinke) I promi|sed.

Dire{ct}ions to the Ignorant.

[28.1]       FOr thy better vnder{|st}anding this briefe Chronologie following,
[28.2]       I thought expedient to aduerti|se thee thus much. Thou mu{|st}
[28.3]       {fi}r{|st} be perfe{ct} in the nombers aboue, |so farre as concerneth the
[28.4]       fourth place. Then marke how I haue diuided the yeares of the
[28.5]       world into {fi}ue parts, called {fi}ue periods,which I for plainne{|s|s}e |sake
[28.6]       {|st}icke not to call Chapters, therefore I beginne mine accompt {fi}ue
[28.7]       times,be{|st} an|swering ( as I thinke ) thy demaunds, when |such
[28.8]       one liued, or |such a thing done: for thou commonly moue{|st} thy
[28.9]       que{|st}ion one of the|se {fi}ue wayes, eyther how long was it after the
[28.10]     Creation? or howe long after the Floud? howe long a{ft}er the de­

[28.11]     parture out of Ægypt and the Lawe giuen ? How long before
[28.12]     Chri{|st}? or how long after Chri{|st}? as thou thinke{|st} it neare{|st} one of
[28.13]     the|se times. If then thou {fi}nde{|st} the name thou |seeke{|st}, and the
[28.14]     yeare |set by it, looke vpward from thence to the beginning of that
[28.15]     Chapter, and thou {|sh}alt |see how long that thing thou |seeke{|st}, was
[28.16]     from the time mentioned in the Title of that Chapter. Further I
[28.17]     haue |set it downe (as thou |see{|st} ) in a diuer|se letter, according to
[28.18]     the diuer{|si}tie of the matter. If then thou |seeke{|st} for any thing pro­
[28.19]     per to the Bible, or eccle{|si}a{|st}icall {|st}ory, |seeke it in the Romaine &
[28.20]     Italica letters : which thou v|se{|st} to call the Latine letter, and pa{|s|s}e
[28.21]     ouer the|se in the Engli{|sh} letter, for they concerne not thy purpo|se.
[28.22]     Againe, if thou be a Grammar Scholer, or other that woulde{|st}
[28.23]     {fi}nd |some thing onely concerning any prophane Authour , |seeke
[28.24]     onely in the Engli{|sh} letter, pa{|s|si}ng ouer the other. And becau|se I
[28.25]     de{|si}re breuitie, I haue omitted the Kings of I|srael, Ægypt, A{|s|s}y­
[28.26]     ria, &c. & the Prophets which wrote not, who|se times thou may{|st}
[28.27]     ea{|si}ly {fi}nde, by conference with the Iudges, and Kinges of Iudah.
[28.28]     And note that ( y ) alone {|st}anding by any nomber, {|si}gni{fi}eth
[28.29]    ( yeare ). Finally my {fi}r{|st} purpo|se in making it , was for thy |sake
[28.30]     that learne{|st} reading. Therefore reade them |so often, vntill thou
[28.31]     can{|st} runne them ouer as fa{|st} as any other Engli{|sh}.

Dire{ct}ions for the

[29.1.1 ] IF thou ha{|st} not been acquainted with such a table as this follo­
[29.1.2 ] wing, and de{|si}re{|st} to make vse of it, thou mu{|st} get the Alphabet,
[29.1.3 ] that is, the order of the letters as they {|st}and, without Booke per­
[29.1.4 ] fe{ct}ly: to know where euery letter {|st}andeth, as (b) neere the be­

[29.1.5 ] ginning, (m) about the midde{|st},and (v) toward the end. There­
[29.1.6 ] fore if the word thou woulde{|st} {fi}nde, begin with (a) looke in the
[29.1.7 ] beginning of the Table,if with ( t ) looke toward the end : Againe,
[29.1.8 ] if thy worde beginne with (ba) looke in the beginning of the
[29.1.9 ] letter (b) but if with (bu) looke toward the end of that letter, and
[29.1.10] if thou ob|serue{|st} the |same for the third and fourth letters,thou {|sh}alt
[29.1.11] {fi}nde thy word pre|sently. Secondly, thou mu{|st} know the cau|se of
[29.1.12] the di{ff}erence of the letter,al written with the Romain, as in(abba)
[29.1.13] are words taken from the Latine or other learned languages,the|se
[29.1.14] with the Italike letter as (abandon) are French words made Eng­
[29.1.15] li{|sh} : tho|se with the Engli{|sh} letter, are meerely Engli{|sh}, or from
[29.1.16] |some other vulgar tongue. The word adioyned vnto it is euer in
[29.1.17] Engli{|sh}, and is the interpreter of it in a more familiar Engli{|sh}
[29.1.18] word. But tho|se that haue no word expounding them , are |set
[29.1.19] down to let thee |see their true writing,where I thought thou migh­
[29.1.20] te{|st} otherwi|se erre. And vnder{|st}and further, that all words , that
[29.1.21] haue in them ( y ), or ( ph ) together,or begin with(chr)(where
[29.1.22] (h)is neuer pronounced ) or end in ( i|sme )are all Greeke words,
[29.1.23] as hypocrite. philo|sophie.Chri{|st}.Bapti|sme. But where I |say they are
[29.1.24] Greeke, I meane, with some di{ff}erence of termination , for they
[29.1.25] were brought from Greece vnto vs through Rome,there they were
[29.1.26] newly {|st}amped,and when they came vnto vs, we coyned them af­
[29.1.27] ter our fa{|sh}ion,as Chri{|st} is in Latine Chri{|st}us, in Greeke Chri{|st}os .
[29.1.28] So Bapti|sme is in Latine Bapti|smus, in Greeke Bapti|smos. The like
[29.1.29] you mu{|st} ob|serue for the Latine words, as tho|se that we haue en­
[29.1.30] ding in (ion) the Latine haue in (io) Creation remission,in Latine is
[29.1.31] Creatio, remi{ssi}on. But touching the French, we haue |some of them
[29.1.32] with di{ff}erence, and |some without , and thus thou {|sh}alt di|scerne
[29.1.33] them. Tho|se with di{ff}erence are marked with this {|st}arre (*) as
[29.1.34] accompli{|sh} in French is (accomplir) and therefore you {|sh}all {fi}nde
[29.1.35] by it this marke('):the other haue none. Sometime I referre thee
[29.1.36] from one word to another, as thus at this word ( brigantine ) |see
[29.1.37] barke, then tho|se two be of one {|si}gni{fi}cation and |so {|sh}alt thou al­
[29.1.38] |so learne varietie of words. When a word hath two {|si}gni{fi}cations,
[29.1.39] if one be well knowne, I omit that, as to barke as a dogge is well
[29.1.40] knowne, but a barke that is a little Shippe,is not |so familiar,there­
[29.1.41] fore I put downe that. If I {|sh}oulde put downe all deriuatiues, it

[29.1.42] would be ouer long : therefore I hope the diligent Scholer will
[29.1.43] |soone learne by pra{ct}i|se from the primitiue or originall, I haue
[29.1.44] therefore |set downe |some fewe of the harde{|st} , yet |some rules for
[29.1.45] them thou {|sh}alt {fi}nd in the end. There are many moe from Latine
[29.1.46] and French, but being well knowne, I omit them.

To the Reader.

[30.1] I purpo|sed (gentle reader)|somewhat heere to haue |spoken, tou­
[30.2] ching the true forming and {|si}gni{fi}cation of deriuatiues and com­
[30.3] pounds as tho|se that beginne with di|s.circum. tran|s. in.&c, and
[30.4] ende in ly.tie.on.ous.able.ible.&c. but |speciall occa|sion hath for
[30.5] the pre|sent altered my purpo|se : Al|so I craue pardon for many
[30.6] faults e|scaped, e|specially in the Table, many words being mi|spla­
[30.7] ced and the chara{ct}er mi{|st}aken. But I hope the learned will with
[30.8] fauour |see my purpo|se. And the vnskilfull reape the fruite, vntill
[30.9] oportunitie may serue to reforme it.

[30.10] If, notwith{|st}anding my former rea|sons, thou doubte{|st} that thy
[30.11] little child will haue |spoyled this booke before it be learned, thou
[30.12] maye{|st} {fi}tly deuide it at the ende of the |second booke, or thou
[30.13] maye{|st} re|serue fayre the written copies, vntill he can read.

[30.14] If thou thinke me either for hardnes of rule, or length of matter,
[30.15] vnfit for children : plentifull experience in very young ones, (be­
[30.16] leeue him that hath tryed)doth dayly confute thee. Therefore to
[30.17] di{|sl}ike before thou ha{|st} eyther tried or diligently read, were either
[30.18] to be ra{|sh} or vnkind.

[30.19]                     Farewell.
