With this readie provision, and their {Bow} and {Arrowes}, are they ready for {War}, and {travell} at an {houres} warning. With a {spoonfull} of this {meale} and a {spoonfull} of water from the {Brooke}, have I made many a good dinner and supper.

Whomsoever commeth in when they are eating, they offer them to eat of that which they have though but little enough prepar'd for themselves. If any provision of {fish} or {flesh} come in, they make their neighbours partakers with them.

If any stranger come in, they presently give him to eate of what they have; many a time, and at all times of the night (as I have fallen in travell upon their houses) when nothing hath been ready, have themselves and their wives, risen to prepare me some refreshing.
