Of Alluuione. cap. 21.
THere is a manner running water that hath two names in latine, one is Al∣luuio, nis: and the other name is Alluui∣es, & is priuie and still rising of water, & hath that name of Abluendo, drawing and washing: for he washeth the earth that he passeth by, and breaketh thereof, and wasteth it. And therefore vnderhoa∣ling and vndercréeping and wasting vn∣der brimmes that bée hoaled and hollow by water, is called Alluuio. Iob. 14. It is said by vndercréeping and priuy run∣ning of water, the earth is wasted lyttle and little: and then the more strong the Page [unnumbered] running and course that passeth by pri∣uie hollownes and brims and cliffes is, the more perillouslye he destroyeth and wasteth the sadnesse thereof, for the other part of the brim outward séemeth sure & sad without, for there the destroying and wasting thereof is not séene within: and therefore his foote slideth the sooner that treadeth therein. For the inward sad∣nesse is wasted, & the priuie hollownesse is hid and vnknowen, as Seneca saith.
