De Lacte Caprino. ca. 66
AMong the foresayd differences, Goats milke holdeth me••e: For after wo∣mans milke it is accounted most tempe∣rate in three substances, therfore it help∣eth much against wounds & euils of the lungs, & of the bladder & reines, if it bée taken with Sugar. And whey departed from the chéese & from ye Butter, is most drieng & cleansing and abating Cholera: and much Goats milke dronk by it selfe, runneth & curdeth soone in the stomacke: & therfore because it shuld not grieue the stomacke, it is tempered with a litle ho∣nie & salt, & then it curdeth neuer, but vn∣curdeth if it begin to curd in ye stomack. And for Goats liue by dry meat and by ends & crops of boughs & of braunches, their milk is the losse watry, & more bi∣ting, & according to the stomacke: For of diuers pasture commeth diuers milke, for beasts that liue by fresh grasse & ten∣der, haue watry milke & thin, that grie∣ueth the stomacke. And those yt eat laxa∣tiue hearbs, haue biting milke, and pric∣keth sinewes, and noyeth and laxeth.
