“ For Friends, although your lordship be scant, yet I hope you are not altogetber destitute; if you be, do but look upon good books : they are true friends, that will neitber flatter nor dissemble : be you but true to yourself, applying that which they teach unto the party grieved, and you shall need no other comfort nor counsel.
