142.WN1.0HE %XTo the La: C. of C. /from France [p.12]
142.WN1.001 Madam /Here where by all, all Saincts Adored are
142.WN1.002 Twere too mvch Scisme to bee singulare,
142.WN1.003 And gainst a practise generall to warr;
142.WN1.004 Yet tvrninge too Saints, should my ho%>vmilitie
142.WN1.005 To other sainte then yow directed bee
142.WN1.006 That were to make my Scisme; Heresie.
142.WN1.007 Nor would I bee a votarie soe cold.
142.WN1.008 As not to tell yow: if this bee too bold,
142.WN1.009 Pardons are in this market cheaplie sold;
142.WN1.010 Where becawse faith is in too lowe degree,
142.WN1.011 I thought some Apostleship in mee
142.WN1.012 To speake things which by faith a#lone I see
142.WN1.013 That is of yow, who are a firmament
142.WN1.014 Of Vertues, where noe one is growne, nor spent
142.WN1.015 They are your Materiae%Llls, not your Ornament
142.WN1.016 Others whome wee call vertuous are not soe
142.WN1.017 In their whole substance, but their vertues growe
142.WN1.018 But in their hvmors, and at seasons showe.
142.WN1.019 For when through tastles flatt hvmilitie [p.13]
142.WN1.020 In dow=bakd men, some harmelesnes wee see
142.WN1.021 Tis but his fleyme, thats vertuous and not hee.
142.WN1.022 Soe is the blood some tymes, whoever ran
142.WN1.023 To danger vnimportund hee was than
142.WN1.024 No better then a sanguine vertuous man
142.WN1.025 Soe cloystrall men that in pretence of feare
142.WN1.026 All contribution to this life forbeare
142.WN1.027 Haue vertue in Melancholie and only there
142.WN1.028 Spirituall cholerique Critigues, which in all
142.WN1.029 Religions finde faults, and forgiue no fall,
142.WN1.030 Haue through this zeale, vertue but in their gall
142.WN1.031 Wee are thus parcell guilt, to gold wee're growne
142.WN1.032 When vertue is our Soules complection
142.WN1.033 Who knowes his vertues Name, or place hath none
142.WN1.034 Vertues but Aguish: when tis seuerall
142.WN1.035 By occasion wakd, and circumstantiall
142.WN1.036 True vertue is soule, Alwaies in all deeds All.
142.WN1.037 This vertue thinkinge to giue dignitie [p.14]
142.WN1.038 To your soule founde there no infermitie
142.WN1.039 For your Soule was as good vertue as shee
142.WN1.040 Shee hath theirfore wrought vppon that part of yow
142.WN1.041 (Which is scarce lesse then Soule) as shee could doe
142.WN1.042 And soe hath made your bewtye vertue too
142.WN1.043 Hence comes it that your beautie wounds not harts
142.WN1.044 As others with profane, and sensuall darts
142.WN1.045 But as an influence vertuous thoughts imparts
142.WN1.046 But if such freindes by the honor of your sight
142.WN1.047 Growe capable of this soe great a light
142.WN1.048 As to partake your virtues and their might
142.WN1.049 What mvst I thinke that Influence mvst doe
142.WN1.050 Where it findes Simpathie and matter too
142.WN1.051 Ver=tue, and beautie of the same stuffe as yow?
142.WN1.052 Which is your noble worthye Sister, shee
142.WN1.053 Of whome, if what in this my extasie
142.WN1.054 And reuelation of yow both I see
142.WN1.055 I should write her as in shorte Galleries
142.WN1.056 The Master at the end large Glasses ties
142.WN1.057 Soe to present the roome twice to our eyes.
142.WN1.058 Soe I should giue this letter length. and say [p.15]
142.WN1.059 That which I sayd of yow; There is noe waie
142.WN1.060 From either, but by the other not to stray
142.WN1.061 May therefore this bee enough to testifie
142.WN1.062 My true deuotion, free from flatterie
142.WN1.063 Hee that beleeues himselfe doth never lye.
