Excerpt from book:
that which is good; and as for their playing, I will make an ende with this fayinge of Chaucer. Lordes might finde them other manor of playe, Honeft ynough to dreve the daye awaye. But to be fhort, the beft medicine for all fortes of men, both highe and lowe, younge and oulde, to put away fuch unlawful games is by the con- trarye, likewife as all Phifitions do allowe in Pbi- ftcke. So let youthe, inftede of fuch unlawful games, which ftande by ydlenefle, by folitarinefle, and corners, by night and darknefle, by fortune and chaunce, by craft and fubtiltye, ufe fuch paf- times as ftand by labour: upon the day light, in open fighte of men, havinge fuch an ende as is come to by cunninge, rather than by craft: and fo fhould virtue encreafe, and vice decaye. For contrarye paftimes, muft nedes worke contrarye mindes in men, as all other contrarye thinges do.

The more honeftye you have proved by fliootinge, Toxophiie, and the more you have per- fuaded me to love it, fo much trulye the foryer have you made me with this lafte fentence of yours, whereby you plainly prove that a man may not greatly ufe it. For if fliootinge be a medycine (as you faye that it is) it maynot be ufed very oft, left a man fhould hurte himfelfe withall, as medycines much occupyed dob. For Arijlttle himfelfe fayth, that medycines be not meate to live withall: and thus fliootinge, by the fame reafon, maye not be much occupyed. Tox.
