One day, as he was searching of their wounds,He found that they had festred priuily,And ranckling inward with vnruly stounds,The inner parts now gan to putrify,That quite they seem'd past helpe of surgery,And rather needed to be disciplindeWith holesome reede of sad sobriety,To rule the stubborne rage of passion blinde:Giue salues to euery sore, but counsell to the minde.
