A Iarke man, and a Patrico. Cap. 15.
FOR as much as these two names a Iarkeman and a Patrico be in the old briefs of vacabonds, and set forth as two kindes of euil doers, you shall vnderstande that a Iarkeman hath hys name of a Iarke, which is a seale in their Language, as one should make wri∣tings and set seales for licences and pasports. And for trueth there is none that goeth about the countrey of them that can eyther wryte so good and fayre a hand, eyther indite so learnedly as I haue sene & Page [unnumbered] handled a number of them: but haue the same made in good townes where they come, as what can not be had for money, as the prouerbe saith, Omnia venalia Romae, and many hath confessed the same to me Now also there is a Patrico• and not a Patriarcha, whiche in their language is a priest that should make mariages till death did depart but they haue none such I am well assured. for I put you out of dout that not one amongst a hundreth of them are maried, for they take lechery for no sinne, but naturall felowship and good liking loue, so that I will not blot my booke with these two that be not.
