Excerpt: ...South-sea of discouerie. I pre'thee tell me, who is it quickely, and speake apace: I would thou couldst stammer, that thou might'st powre this conceal'd man out of thy mouth, as Wine comes out of a narrow-mouth'd bottle: either too much at once, or none at all. I pre'thee take the Corke out of thy mouth, that I may drinke thy tydings Cel. So you may put a man in your belly Ros. Is he of Gods making? What manner of man? Is his head worth a hat?

It may wel be cal'd Ioues tree, when it droppes forth fruite Cel. Giue me audience, good Madam Ros. Proceed Cel. There lay hee stretch'd along like a Wounded knight Ros.
