They <160/r.168> <Of {Debts} and {Trusting}>

{Obs.} They are very desirous to come into debt, but then he that trusts them, must sustaine a twofold losse:

First, of his Commoditie.

Secondly, of his custome, as I have found by deare experience: Some are ingenuous, plaine hearted and honest; but the most never pay, unlesse a man follow them to their severall abodes, townes and houses, as I my selfe have been forc'd to doe, which hardship and travells it hath yet pleased God to sweeten with some experiences and some little gaine of Language.

|Nummácheke.| `I am a poore man.' |Mesh nummaúchnem.|- `I have been sicke.' |Nowemacaúnash nitteaùquash.|- `I was faine to spend my money in my sicknesse.'

{Obs.} This is a common, and as (they think) most satisfying answer, that they have been sick: for in those times they give largely to the Priests, who then sometimes heales them by conjurations; and also they keepe open house for all to come to helpe to pray with them, unto whom also they give money.
