The cause of this impediment.

In the bodye commeth a vaporous humour or fumositie rising from the sto∣macke to the braine: it maye come al∣so through surfet and dronkennesse, and sleeping vpright, these bréede dreames & disquieting of the powers, make men to seeme or deeme that which is the contra∣rie. Likewise the vapour of golde & sil∣uer do so incense the braine and inflame the stomacke, that many times Iustice mindes to punish, when he thinketh no∣thing lesse. Thus ye goodly are disquieted, by missing of that sight, that they would gladly see, and tho wicked triumph, as though they wer not séene nor perceiued.
