{The querent}

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 2r>
<Unidentified Hand B starts in >The first chapiter sheweth of Certain Questions that are to be asked of the ty, that commeth with the vrin. or asketh the question for the sick:/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 4r>

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

Secondly towching the name I will here shew vnto you certain names that be common as wel to men as to women, at least in ye Vulgar pronunciation, of these which know not ye true reason and right originall of the Name, And these Names are doubtfull, & may decieue thee, therefore in such names be plain with them, to aske them whether it be a man or a woman except thou canst gather it by their talck, as often tyme thou mayest, the names are these.

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

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

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

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

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 5v>

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

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

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 6v>

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

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

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

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 8r>

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

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

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 9r>

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

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

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 42v>

And as often as you find Dns ascend. in his owne house fortunate, as in his {illeg} house exalted, trip. term. or face and in Angulo or in iio or 5o then the partie is not hartesicke, nether is the strength of his bodie so weake, but he is able to take phisicke, and able to beare it, for the stronger Dns ascend. is, the stronger is the partie, et econtra.

If be Dns ascend. in in i0o applieinge to the of in then it signifieth the woman or querente desireth noe lecherie, for h{er} husbands nature agreeth not with her bodie, but after she doth lie with him, she is much the worse, And he is whole, and consumeth her bodie, and he is much giuen to lecherie, and it makes the woman werie faint and feeble, and full of sicknes, pale and ill coloured yellowe and much out of quiet.

If Dns ascend. be in 9o in a full of the ascend. and peregrine in his fall or Detriment, it is not good to meddle with him, for thou shalt be angrie with they selfe if thou doe, for he is froward and unfortunate and is ill to take physic, and will not be ruled.

If be in 6o to the ascend. and doe applie to Dno ascend. by or Dns ascend. in 9o at a to the ascend. it sheweth the partie is ill to take physicke, and will not take those things ahll doe him good but will find fault with his phisicke, or he hath taken it, and will say he is the worse for it and so give of, and will not pay the physition nor for his physick wherefore the phisition shalbe angrie with him self for goeing to him, and doeinge for him, yea this willbe though be Dns ascend.

Dns ascend. in peregrine 9o at a to the ascend. and in 6o in a applicans iterum {} idem.

in 7o goe not to the sicke.

If Dns 7e be in a or of Dns ascend. appl: with in the gr. of the orbs or seperated from and at a of Dns ascend. then the womans disease came by occupieinge or fretinge of her Matrix, by her husband which put his finger into her uulua, and freted it wheereon her course came downe. D.H. 22. appl.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 43r>

If Dns ascend. be in 9o at a to the ascend. goeinge to the of in and in 6o in and appl: to the of . and in the 7o seperans a causeth the runninge of the reines, taken by lieinge with a woman and straninge of himselfe.

If be Dna 9e and in ascend. in signo in and goe from in 28 i0 and app. to the of in 7o the partie hath taken some drinke or Medisen, that hath to much colded her bodie and done her much harme and will also take more euill medisens.

If be in in ascend. and doe seperate a in i0o and be in a full of in in 9o and at a to in i0o then the partie hath much sand in his backe, and greate heate in his backe, and the running of the reines, and also he ouer-occupied himselfe, and retched his bodie to much, and so did weaken himself, and tooke cold in his backe when he was hote; and by retchinge himselfe brought downe. the sand and by cold his reines stopt, and bred some impostume, which brought the runninge of the reines.

If Dns ascend. be Dns i22 in his owne house or exaltation or in his dignities and doth begin to seperat from some other planet to whome the applies, it seemeth that the woman is in loue with some other man which hath loued her, and whose loue she desireth, but some thinge hath fallen out betweene them of late, that they are not friends.

For in such a case if some other planet doe appl. to the planet from which Dns ascend. is seperate, it seemeth some other woman loueth the man whom the loued; if it be by

If Dns ascend. in such a case doth leaue by or aspect some planet and doe withall appl. to Dno 7e then the woman leavinge that partie with whome she was in loue, begins to love her husband againe.

If in such a case Dns 7e in ascend. in signo ascend. and be also Dns 6e then is ascend. and appl. \the husband {case}/ cause of the womans disease.

in iio in in signo i2e seperans a D. 8e in in signo ascend. in ascend. and appl. to Dn 7e in 2o in and at a to D. ascend. appl. in in i0 comb. it signifieth the partie shall receiue good by the physition, and by sight of the phisition her griefe shalbe <MS Ashmole 363, f. 43v> asswaged and she shalbe cured by the grace of god without Medisen.

If Dns ascend. be of Dns 7e also Dns ascend. though by yet the sicke shall receiue ease and comfort, onlie by the sighte of the phisition.

If the doe seperate from plannet in 7o as from in , then the woman tooke her disease by lieinge with some uncleane man. &c

If Dns ascend. be in 6o and goeinge out of one signe into another as 4{o in} the partie is cause of her owne sicknes by goeinge out of one Rome into another, or out of one house into another, for enteringe into which is his detriment and in 6o sheweth she went into an euill place.

Dns 7e in ascend. in retrog. appl. in Dn horæ in 7o in seperans a appl. he tooke his disease beinge a boy with ouer much forninge of his nature, wherby rete{n}tiue muscles of the spermaticke uessells be weakned that he cannot hould his nature, but it wasteth away from him, and againe he is giuen to much drinkinge which causeth much moisture in the muscels and weakned the retentiue uertue.

Dns ascend. and beinge also Dns 5e and in ascend. not remotus, peregrine goeing to the of in Dns 4e sheweth the cause of her disease springs from her matrix of some conception therein of the nature of and that is possest with some euill spirit, or that is or wilbe of some diuellish nature and condition, ouer whome the euill spirits will haue much power and much vox. and will doe som diuellis{h de}votions if it live and be some extra ordinarie child, and especiallie if be in Angulo.

If Dns 6e and Dns 5e be in or in one signe together, and the goe from Dno i2e and 9e and appl. to beinge Dna ascend and 8e yt seemeth the matrix of the woman or some fetus, or other thinge therin is cause of her disease partlie, And also that some Ange{ll} euill or good spirit doth also molest her, and she is fearfull and ty{illeg} tymerous.

When and or anie 2 of them be in Angells, the partie \so that the / be one and i. in seuerall Angells, the partie is or wilbe possest or {illeg}ed with some spirit

If doe seperate from in he hath the Gonorea.

When Dns 7e is a higher planet, then Dns ascend. and also more stronger then Dn ascend. if the woman make the question it is a signe that the nature of the man is to stronge for the woman, and it doth confound and consume her bodie, and she is allwayes sicklie within 24. howers after she lieth with her husband, and so pines away and her complexion and colour altereth and changeth.

When is eyther Dns ascend.

If be eyther Dna horæ, or ascend, or planetæ à quo seperatur in 6o or ascend. or as aforesayd, then the partie hath the Gonorea, the mother or waste of nature.

33The Lord ascend. in ascend. signifieth dayes.

Dominus ascend. in i0o signifieth howers.

In 7o Monethes.

In 4o yeares.

The 4 Angells signifie the tyme present.

The 4 succedenth {sic} signifie the tyme to come.

The 4 cadents signifie the tyme paste.

The 4 cadents are called the 4 mothers and signifie the tyme past.34

The 4 neces or cossins are called the 4 succedenth {sic}, tyme to come.35

36The 4 Angulls or the 4 daughters the tyme present.

Example of tyme.

If the 4 cadents be better then the 4 daughters, then the tyme past is better then the tyme to come.

If the 4 neces be better then the 4 cadents or mothers, then the tyme to come is better then the tyme past.

Moreouer if the iudge be good. vz if the plannet of the day and the signe that signifieth the tyme be changed into such a place, where they signifie but a short tyme to continue. yet after it hath discontinued and bene in dispaire, yt shall come againe.

But if the Iudge be good, and the figure of tyme in an unfortunate house, it signifieth good to come or longe tyme: but the goodnes shall not fall.

And if an ill signe be in a good house, although it should not be longe to37 continue: yet if the Iudge be good and fortunate, it signifieth longe <MS Ashmole 363, f. 45v> tyme and it shall longe continue.

If the 4 succedent be better then the 4 cadents, then the tyme to come is better then the tyme past.

If the 4 daughters vz: the 4 Angells be better then the 4 ne{illeg} vz. the 4 succedents, then is the tyme presente better then the tyme to come.

If the 4 succedents be better then the 4 Angells, then is the tyme to come better then the tyme present.

If the 4 succedents be better then the 4 cadents, then is the tyme to come better then the tyme past.

If the 4 cadents be better then the 4 succedents, then is the tyme past better then the tyme to come.

If the 4 cadents and the 4 succedent be better then the 4 daughters then is the tyme past and the tyme to come, better then the tyme present.

If the 4 Angells and the 4 succedents be better both thē the 4 cadents then is the tyme present, and the tyme to come better then the tyme past.

And if the planet that is signifier of good to come be found in the i2 house and be good and fortunate, it signifieth that good shall come by him whom thou takest to be thy enemie.

If the signifier be euill and in iia domo, then that euill shall come by meanes of them thou takest for thy frinds.

If the signifier be good, and in ascend. then shall that good come unto thee by course of nature, and by thy constellation, and by thyne owne industrie.

If the signifier be euill, and in ascend. then the euill shall come by course of nature, by thy constellation, and by thy owne negligence, procuring or seeking.

If the signifier be good, and in 2o then that good shall come to thee thorough some money matter.

If the signifier be euill end in 2o then that euill shall come to thee thourough some money, or thy substance shalbe cause thereof.

An ægrotat nec non.

If any come unto thee for one, facinge such a one is sicke, and I would knowe his disease, if thou mistrust the partie, that he comes to prove thee, or in some false messuage. And wouldest know whether the same partie be sick{e} or noe, thou shalt looke to the signifier of the sicke partie, that is to the Lord ascend. of the question, and to the and ad planetam, a quo seatur.

Dns ascend. questioni Luna Planeta a quo seperatur

This 3 are for the querente if the sicke person make the question or be the cause thereof himselfe, for himselfe, Then they shall signifie where he be sicke or noe.

The Ascendente The Moone Dns Domus is

This 3 doe signifie the spirit the soule and inward mind of man and woman.

The Lord of the ascend. The Lord of the house of the The Sunne

This 3 doe signifie the bodie and outward and inward members of man and woman and state thereof.

But first where the partie be sicke or noe, de quo queritur, you shall looke to the signifiers of the bodie of man and state thereof.

If the signifiers of the state of the bodie, be in signo nor conuenientis sed pugnandi suæ naturæ, uel sit in Domo cadenti et præcipue in sexta ægrotat.

Si significatores sunt diu{illeg}|rni|, and under the earth in the daie tyme, or if they be nocturnall and aboue the earth in the daie and under the earth in the night. ægrotat.

If the signifiers of the bodie male afficiantur, retrogradus, combustus aut in detrimento aut debilis in terminis malorum, a{ut} <MS Ashmole 363, f. 49r> in configuratione mala cum aliquo contrario planeta et malo ægrotat.

If the signifiers of the body be weake in the 6. or 8. house and unfortunate he is sicke.

If the signifiers of the bodie, doe applie unto the Lord of the 6. or 8. house and be infortunate or weake withall, and not receiued of Dns 6e or 8e to whome he doth applie he wilbe sicke or die.

If the signifiers of the body, or any 2 of them be weke and obscessus a malis aut fixarum congressa male se habeant, tum quidem ægrotare {seconstall}.

But if sufficeth not for thee to iudge him sicke by one of theirs judgements aforesayd, but by the most part of the Iudgements, abouesayd.

And if thou find him well in body, then looke where he be sicke in mind. ut in folio 378.

An conualescat cito infirmus nec non.

looke fol. 402.

Si Luna et significatores infirmi pessimè se habeant, nec infortunarum radijs oppressi, Imò si melior sit eorum conditio infectione et configuratione, bona quam mala, citò ualetudini restituetur, maximè si{illeg}significator ab infortunijs seperatur, et fortunis applicet, uel a fortunis uel planetis ejusdem naturæ obscessus sit.

Idem asserit signum commune, precipue bicorporeum in 6a aut signum Domini 6e.

Si significatorum major{illeg} pars ab infortunio et omni mala affectione libera sit, iterim cum cæteri male se habeant adhuc salus est speranda. Verum si significatores irradiantur quod eorum mala sit ad |nequiorem| applicatio, tum si cadentes sint significatores, de morte est timendum. Notandum quod si multiplicem contingit, uidere significationem tum uitæ tum mortis, Iudicium proferatur opportet pro ratione, plurimum significatorum et fortiorem.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 49v>

Si Dominus ascendentis intrabit sextam, liberabitur ab ægritudine e{um}

Si Dominus 6e intrabit ascendens, euadet in ingressu.

Si uel est Dns ascend. et transierit combustionem cum si{gnos} orientales, liberabitur, si occidentales non liberabitur a morbo.

Dominus ascend. subito ad planetam fortinat{illeg}o aliquo modo proueniens b{re}uem affirmat morbum.

Si sit Dns ascend. et in cum infra i0 grades et oriental. li{be}rabitur: si sit occidentalis et distat a plus i8 grad liberabitur si minor i8 morretur.

Looke ferther for this in the chapter, an uiuet aut moritur infirm{illeg} fol. 564.

Of a sute or requeste to obtaine it.

If thou wilt obtaine aney sute or request of aney man or haue on to {doe} any thing for thee, and not denie thee or to percure one to goe, to speake for thee, to some man or to grant thee something that thou would aske or haue lend house or such like whatsoeuer, then obserue these rulles following. 38600.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 66v>
Of the infortune of a man and the Causes of a mans infortune.

A man \beinge/ infortunate in this world in his state and affaires, so that he cannot prosper or effect his purposes, he must search the cause thereof.

Vnderstand therefore that the infortune of all men comes allwayes by one of this 7. means or manner of wayes.

Eyther by the constellation of his birth, for that he is borne unfortunate. Or by God above nature, and then he is infortunate and punished for sinne, that nothinge doth prosper with him, because god doth punish him.

Or ells he is infortunate against nature by the diuell, which envieinge his foelicitie, as he did Iobbs. doth destroy and consume his goods, and so makes him infortunate in all his affaires.

Or ells he is infortunate by the Angells, that punishe him for some offence done againste them, or for some unknowne cause.

Or els he is unfortunate by witchcrafte, and witches that seeke his destruction and overthrowe, by destroyinge his cattell and substance, or punishinge his bodie. etc.

Or els he is cause of his owne infortune, by negligence, or selfe will, or some vice.

Or els he is unfortunate by some enemie or man of arte, by an image, laminge, Ringe, or such like, for enimitie done or revendge.

If it come by constellation of his birth, then must it be amended, by his constellation, as I have written in my booke de microcosmo, and in my booke of natural magicke.

If it come of god for sinne, or that god doth hie him by suffringe the divell to vexe him, then must it be amended by patience and true confession and repentance, and amendment of life.

If it come of the diuell for envie, by prayer unto god and faith it must be amended, and by men of arte.

If by the angells, repent, aske mercie of God and his Angells <MS Ashmole 363, f. 67r> doe punish and infortunate a man, either it is for some offence and cause, or by the commaundment of God.

If by witches and leud people for envie, pray to god, and goe to men of arte to helpe it, or to the priest.

If it come of himselfe through negligence, pride, or by his owne follie, or by dieinge, dronkennes, letcherie, or such like, let him lease it, and serve God.

If it come by some man of arte, or by magicke, by man of himselfe, or at some other mans request, he must seeke out one that can lose it by a greater power then he hath that did it.

To Knowe by which of this a man is unfortunate.

Let him looke to his figure Astronomicall upon the question, and trie it thereby as followeth.

If Dns ascend. or be unfortunate of themselfes, and in 7o 6o or some cadent house, or euill place, or be retrog. comb. peregrine, in detrimento aut casu, he is unfortunate by nature, and by his constellation.

If Dns ascend. and be in or of Dns i0 Dns i0 beinge or or some unfortunate planet, then his infortune is from god, and the finger of God is on him, as in capite de i0o Domo.

If Dns ascend. and be in of Dns iie beinge and or some unfortunate planet. Then it comes by the Angells of god, as in capite iie Domus.

If Dns ascend.. and be in of Dns i2e Dns i2e beinge or or some infortunate planet. Then it is done by the diuell and witchcrafte, as in the chapter of witchcrafte.

If Dns ascend. and be in of Dns 9e beinge or or some infortunate planet. Then it is done by magicke or inchantment, by some man of arte, by some image Lamine or carract.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 67v>

If Dns ascend. and be unfortunate by of Dns 4e beinge or or by some unfortunate planet in 4o as and then he is unfortunate by his parents, or by some euill spirite.

If Dns ascend. and be unfortunate in 5o or in of Dns 5e or if or be in 5o or in of Dns 5e he shalbe infortunate by his childerine.<A lacuna in MS Ashmole 389 ends here and it provides the best reading. >

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

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

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

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

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

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

I would engrave or caste a sigill of to good, and I begin it in hora when is in ascend. which is a directe ascend. and therein in ascend. and so doe continue workinge thereon till the hower of in in ascend.

The 2. Chapter of the 4. house showeth the state of the stomacke good or bad, weake or strong.

those 4. signes doe cause vomitinge, and in them it it {sic} good to give a vomite. And if any of these be in 4o Domo, ascend thay cause vomitinge especially if Dns 4e be in one of them or if Dns 4e be theire meridionall or septentrionall. Ascend. in in such cases the partie vomiteth more or lesse.

If or be in 4o and Dns 4e in one of those signes then the partie is much provocketh to vomite, but vomiteth not, except Dns 4e be in ascend. meridionall or septentrionall, then the remiteth out righte, or if be in 4o

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 84r>

If be in 4o and Dns 4e in he offereth \ then/ offereth to vomite but cannot, because his stomacke is dry if he doe vomite it is melancoly, if Dns 4e be ascend. then he doth vomite. And it is good to give a vomite to make on vomite.

If be in 4o and in seperatent, descend. and in 4e and in and goe from to in retrog. sep. descend. he doth neither vomite nor scoure but soundeth.

It is generall that if Dns 4e and the be both in or aspect full or neere the aspect, or or doe last seperate from a planet that is meridionall or seperate, descendent, then the partie hath a greate scouringe or some flux downeward.

If Dns 4e and the doe seperate from a planet, that is Septentrionall Ascendent or be in a full or aspect of a planet septentrionall, Ascend. then the partie vomiteth or bleadeth often at the mouth or nose, et econtra.

If the one of them be in or aspect. or doe last seperate from a planet meridionall descendent, and the other be in or aspect or doe last seperate from a planet and the others be in \septentrionall ascend./ then the partie doth both vomite and blo|e|ud upwards, and also some flux or scouring downewards.

And it is generall, that if Dns 4e questionis be meridionall be septentrionall descendent, and the or Dns 4e or Dns ascend. be in or aspecte, with a planet that is also descendent especially if thy be in then the parti hath a greate flux or scouringe, and the humours in the body, and the whole course of the body is downewards, either by some flux or blody issue or flux of the course or of the urine, or of the hemorods of|r| of the runninge of the raines, or some flux whatsoeuer it be or swellinge in the leggs, But if thy or any of them doe seperate, from a <MS Ashmole 363, f. 84v> planet meridionall or septentrionall descendent, then the partie hath a greate scouringe, but if thy appl. to a planet that is meridionall or septentrionall descendent, then thy will have a great scouringe.

It is Generall that if Dns 4e be meridionall descendent, in and appl. to a planet, that is septentrionall ascendent in in in 4o that the partie doth bled much at the nose and hath a scouringe downewards, And is also like to vomite.

If be in 4o and in i2o or iio          descend, and goe from in retrog. then the woman voydeth much bloud downewards backwards, and hath a fluxe of bloud by sidge which would have bred the pilles.

If be in 4o and in meridionall descend. and in 4o absce{illeg} at a to in seperant. ascend. then the partie doth blead much at the nose and doeth also scoure downewards.

If be in 4. and in iio in and in 4o ascend. seperans a in descend. the partie doth both scoure and vomite.

If and in seperans descend. and goe from in descend. the partie scoures and vomiteth not or very little.

If be in 4o and in seperans a in and in seperate descend. the partie hath surfiteth and vomiteth much and is much payned in the harte stomacke and belly, and hath a feuer, and it should be by some cause against nature, because d. i0e i5 cum o Dns i2e

in 4o in seperate descend. in in a of in the partie hath a great flux or scouringe and vomiteth also.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 86v>

in 4o in seperate descend. in seperans a the partie hath some flux downewards as the running of the raines.

If be in 4o and therein not remota and in retrog. in i0o and appl. to in 7o comb in and goe from the partie is redie to vomite often but vomits not.

If be in 4o

If Dns ascend. or D. 4e in such a case doe appl. to aney planet that is meridionall or septentrionall descendent, then the scouringe will continue on the partie.

If the appl. next unto a planet next againe, that is ascend. the scouringe or flux will stay.

Therefore I hold if good in stoping all fl|sc|ouringe and flux of the belly, raines, matrix or blatter, to doe it when Dns ascend. and doe appl. to a planet, that is ascend. or when Dns ascend. and or both ascend. meridionall or septentrionall.

And in all fluxes of the nose much bleedinge or vomitinge but appl. to a planet descendent and be descendent, and let Dns ascend. be descendent.

If in a question for the sicke be in 4o and in in 4o retrog. occidentall, septentrionall descendent, not remotus, and in 5o seperans a Dna 4e in obcessia et occidentall seperate ascend. appl. in 3o the man cannot brooke any phisick, but so soone as he taketh pilles or potion he vomiteth it up againe presently, and cannot abyde any physicke at all, but such are naturally given to vomite up th{illeg}|rr|e physicke.

De Thesauro Abscondito.

Money, Treasure, Iewells, or such like beinge his, is and was hid firste, either by some on lyuing or by one death if it be or was hide by the lyuing, then it hide either by the querent himselfe, by his wife, child, Kindred, parents, or by a stranger,

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 87v>

If it was hid by somebody, that is dead. Then it was hid also either by his wife or husband dead, or by the father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, sonn, daughter, or by some {illeg}|o|ther of theire Kindered, or by some stranger of the which all you ought to looke to the Ascendente of the question, and to the 2. house, and his Lord from the ascend. of the question as if the sonne com. and demaund, where his {father} hid his money, then the 4. house, is the ascend. of the question, and the 5. house is the house of substance to the 4. because he asketh of his fathers substance

So likewise is {sic} a man come and say my wife is dead and she hid mony is {sic} her life time I would knowe where she hid it, here the man demandeth of the substance and mony of his wife beinge death Therefore I saye:

The 7. house and his Lord shalbe the ascend. of the question for his wife being dead.

The 8. house of the figure is the house of substance to the 7th for his wifes substance.

If therefore Dns 7e which is the ascend. of the question for the woman dead, be in 8o question is, which is in the 2. house of the figure, and in signo 3e it showeth she died in her sister house.

Then looke diligently to the Lord of the 8. house, which is the house of substance of the woman, if he be in any of the 4 Anguls vz. in 4o 7o i0o ab ascend. 7e or in 7o hoiest in ascend. questionis or in a aspect of the ascend. or of his Lord, then is the mony hid in the house.

If Dns substant vz 8e be in ascend. questionis, or in any of the signes of the Lord ascend. dic quod res est in palatio ubi moratur.

If he be in the i0. house of the question, or in the i0. house or signe or Dns ascend. dic quod est in ea domo ubi solent facere magisteria et factiones.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 88r>

If he be in the 7. house of the question or in the 7th signe or house, from the Lord ascend. then it is hid in his wifes chamber or in his wifes place.

If Dns substant. be in the 4. house, or in the 4. signe or house a Dno ascend. then it is hid in his fathers chamber or where he laye, or where his grandfather or grandmother laye.

But if thay be not neere the angulls or Lord ascend. as is aforesayd, then it is in the middest of the house.

Then looke to the application of to Dno ascend. questionis, which the Lord of the 2. house, aforesayd. where there be any reception betweene them or noe, or any frindship or enemitie, for by the aspect, betweene them and reception, thou shalt knowe where the sayd money may he {sic} had or found.

And if the reception be by or then it shalbe had with much adoe and very hardly and greate daunger. \easily had./

But if the reception be by or or of ill planet, it may be had with much adoe, and very hardly and greate daunger.

But if there be no reception, but translation of light, aut collectio luminis by good aspect, it may be had.

But if there be no good aspect, translation, reception nor collection, it shal not be had.<A lacuna in MS Ashmole 389 ends here and it provides the best reading. >

If Dns 7e doe receive the Lord ascend. by in a fixed signe in i0o 4o or i0o then the partie, de quo queritur, shall marrie the querente in the end.

If there be such reception betweéne them, by or in fixed signes and Dns ascend. be in i0o and Dns 7e in 4o then love shall continue longe, and thay shall marry in the end.

But in such reception, the on be in 8o and the other be in 2o they shall love till death, but not marrie together.

If there be such a mutuall reception, betweene the signifiers of both parties, by or thay shall love but there shalbe many bretokes betweene them, and much trouble.

If there be reception, betweene them, and the on in 6o and the other in i2o thay shall love, but thay shall suffer Imprisonment and much trouble and infame.

If Dns 7e doe recept. Dns ascend. and Dns 7e be in i0o or 4o or in of Dns i0e or 4o thay shall marrie together in the end.

If Dns i0e and Dns 4e doe give there virtue both to Dno 7e or to Dno ascend. then thay shalbe married in the end.

But in such a case, if Dns ascend. or Dns 7e doe not receive the vertues of Dns i0e and 4e but give it backe againe, or to some other planet, then though thy consent, and have a full determination to be married, yet thay shalbe hindered, and lett by some meanes or other.

Of vomitinge Purginge and giving of Medicines.

The time of givinge of medicine is much to be respected accordinge to the operation that a man will have his medicine to make or worke naturally \either/ upwards may begin \or/ downewards, for a vomite that worcke naturally upwards may begine in such a time, that it shall worke altogether downward and not upward at all, and sometimes both upwards and downewards and sometimes shall neither worke upward nor downeward nor make any operation at all but, digeste and goe his waye as meate doth.

The like is to be done with a purge or purgative potion, that he may be given in such a time, that it shall not worke at all or shall altogether worke upward and not downeward etc.

The cheefest time of purginge generally is in the springetime, and in the fall of the leafe, and this is for the health of the body, to a voyde diseases of old or that may insue for lacke of purginge. The soer and winter are not so good.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 92v>

Bullen sayeth we muste purge the upper parte of the body in soer and the Lower parte in the winter, hoc est, if neede require for the humours doe followe the propertie of the time

In soer time purge above early in the morning.

In winter purge beneath late at nighte.

In the equinoctiall time prepareth at evening, and purge next morninge |by Electuaries.|

In extreame hote regions or whether or in extreeme cold wheather or Regions, there may be given to purgation neither in the dayes that be not temperate, when it is to hote with the sonne or could by frost.

For Hipocrates sayeth, exclusis etiam frigidissimus, calidiss.q diebus juxta medicorum, norman, ut autem canis utrius ex{illeg} ortus, vel per dies aliquot postea, sive etiam circa ipsius matr{illeg}tina ocorbitum, quando moleste sunt purgationes et medicamētorum usus.

In purgationibus etiam dando, semper cavere {debetis} debilitatem complectionis et ratritatem corporis et pauperum virum corpore et consuetudine patientis que quidem leniter soluntur, quibus dandus est minus solutruna in quantitate quidem difficile laxat{illeg} tum majus in quantitate tamen nunquam excedatis quantitatem determinatam in Authoribus

Necessitati præictum regula non obstant, non licet locum nec tempus, ut in febribus, pestilentialibus Autrace, Corbumculus frenesis vel phlebotomijs vel pharmatijs {illeg} laxativis purgationi {ba}{illeg}untur.

Thē when you come to purginge first diet the patiente a daye or 2 before with meates and supings, to provoke urine as the broth of flesh <MS Ashmole 363, f. 93r> or fish boyled oynions with fate     porke, also give the patient 2 ons times poched egges sased with a little wine and pepper or ells hearbes molyficing or sta susteninge the belly as borrage, buglos, mallowes, mercury, smallage, sly etc.

Then you must knowe that a preparative ought to be given a daye before you purge to make apt the humours that you would purge, but I did allwayes use to give, a preparative 3 dayes or 2 at the least before I did purge, if the cause of the disease were either of melancoly, salt, flem or burnt collour, but in the farder causes a daye or 2. will |serve.| And if will purge the extreame partes as the legges or armes, you ought to give 2 prparatives 2 dayes, before every daye, on or 3 dayes, as before is sayd. But beware you neither purge nor vomite, nor give any glister in the daye of the Crisis, vz the 4. 5. 7. 9. i4. 2i. 22. or 28. daye, of the sicknes for then the partie wilbe in Iebardie of his life.

But thou canst neuer knowe the just daye and time of the crisis, but by astrologie only all the rules of gallen and hipocrates will deceive thee therein

Neither give any purge nor vomite, when the goeth to the Lord of the 6. house, for then the partie wilbe very sicke.

Nor when the goeth to the Lord of the 8. house, without reception, for then he will die or be in hazard of his life and the worse a greate while after. Et est notandum, quod in vel et non detis laxativum, yet I myselfe did once in necessitie give a laxativum medicine to purge in the just of and in hora nis and it did well, but was the next planet, the appl. unto after she went from the by and she appl. to by .

Also you must understand, that every purgation must have 3. qualities he must dissolve, attracte, and expell.

And it is best givinge of pilles late at night after supper 2 or 3 howers and so goe to bed, and sleepe that thay may worke the next daye, and I have given pilles at 2 or 3 or 4 of the clocke in the morninge.

<MS Ashmole 363, f. 93v>

Electuaries, potions and drinkes, may be given either in the morninge 2 howers before you rise or aboute 8. of the clocke in the morninge And when you will purge Coller by vomite, then you must give the sayd vomite a little before collore hath his dominion, that it may worke in the howers of coller, and so of the rest of the humores and keept the partie from could and from meate and drinke.

The times best to purge in, is when the is in ad {h}ibit{i}{s} planetarum raditionibus vertentem corporis expulsam principalit{illeg} currantibus.

In primis iuxta astrologrum ormam permetum in signis maxime adhibitis etc.

Medicines that should purge could humours of the stomacke of the liver should be sharpened with ij of turbits and repressed with on drame of the powder of pepper, or with merabolius Iudijs or {eblulie} or with esuleope.

           for a purge given the goeinge to the or of will not worke at all, or if it doe worke it will worke but little, and with much paine, and it wilbe very slothsom to the partie, and it will make him abhorre phisicke afterward and dislike of the phisition as I have proved, therefore never give any purge nor other phisicke if the goe to any aspect of especially to the nor let not be in ascend nor Lord of the ascend. nor Lord of the hower, in which thou givest thy phisicke, except it be to one that is borne under and the like is to be considereth of
