Minton difcourfe, fengs to bedemied. 117 Irifh man ; if Englifh, you'l conjecture he is an Englifhman And if you fpeak the language of harlots and brothelhoufes, what can we think but that you are fuch yourfelves, or at leaft are learning to be filch ? For thame do not fodifgrace your parents that breed you up, and the houfes that you live in ; what may folks think and fay, when theyhear you talk filthily, and tinging filthy fongs, will they not think that you have Adulterers or filthy perIons to your parents, that teach or fuller you to learn filch things ? and that they are bringing you up for their own profeilion ? will they not think that you live in whorehoures, and not in Chriftian families ?

And yet this is our peoples fport : what fay thefe wretches, may we not jeft and be merry.,when we mean no harm,without all this ado ? Have you no handler mirth then this ? nor no more cleanly jells then there ? will you feed upon that which is Carrion or corrupt, and make it your Junkets to delight yourrlat ? will you make merry with that which God condemneth, and threatneth to that you out of his Kingdom for, and makes the mark of the unfantaified and chargeth you n6t once to name it, that is, not 9.3 without
