One industrious Insect, and the sweetness of th' other, is the Christian Name of our well belov'd Brother, his Sir Name the Room where the Fire's in the middle and some say he plays very well on the Fiddle, the Sign he hangs out is half Fish, and half Flesh, and he sells as true Wine as good Fellow can wish. Insecta prœcauta, alterius merda

Vexilla sunt, magna Bicarnea mundi;
Vinum, quod vendit, optarent potabundi.
