without wit or invention, a very toy." So men are valued, he adds, their
labours vilified by fell iwes of no worth themselves, as things of nought, who
could not have done as much. "In an interval of vapouis (remarks Bishop
Kennel, in his curious ' Register and Chronicle ') Burton would be extremely
pleasant, and raise laughter in any company." WRANGHAM.
