An Other Saying Concerning the Same by Katherine Dowe

To rise betimes, thy selfe to recreate
To looke well to thine owne, & to kéepe a sober estate
Long ere thou eatest, and not to sup late,
To lie high with thy head, and to sléepe moderate
Maketh man rich, long life and fortunate.

From: Tasso, Torquato, The housholders philosophie VVherein is perfectly and profitably described, the true oeconomia and forme of housekeeping. With a table added thereunto of all the notable thinges therein contained. First written in Italian by that excellent orator and poet Signior Torquato Tasso, and now translated by T.K. Whereunto is anexed a dairie booke for all good huswiues, 2003, Text Creation Partnership: Ann Arbor, Michigan and Oxford, p. [unnumbered].
