Σελίδα 463 - My father was a yeoman, and had no lands of his own, only he had a farm of three or four pound by year at the uttermost, and hereupon he tilled so much as kept half a dozen men. He had walk for a hundred sheep; and my mother milked thirty kine.

He was able, and did find the king a harness, with himself and his horse, while he came to the place that he should receive the king's wages.

Σελίδα 148 - And in the sight of all his men he was drawn out of the great ship into the boat, and there was an axe and a stock ; and one of the lewdest of the ship bade him lay down his head, and he should be fairly ferd (dealt) with, and die on a sword ; and took a rusty sword and smote off his head within half a dozen strokes...
