¶ A Swadder or Pedler. Cap. 14.
THese Swadders and Pedlers be not all euill, but of an indiffe∣rent behauiour. These stand in great awe of the vpright men, for they haue often both wares and mony of them. But for as much as they seeke gayne vnlawfully agaynst the lawes and statutes of this noble realme, they are well worthy to be registred amonge the number of vacabonds: and vndoutedly I haue hadde some of them brought before me when I was in commission of the peace as ma∣lefactors for brybering and stealing. And now of late it is a greate practice of the vpright man, when he had gotten a bo•ye to bestowe the same vpon a packeful of wares, and so goeth a time for his plea∣sure, because he would lyue without suspicion.
