While grateful our fouls in fweet union keep time.
Nor e’er harbour a i bought of defpair;
Then morn noon and night, hail the bleflings of corn,
Still the bleilings oi wine too we hail j
One fupports nature's call our fields doth adorn j
But for wine our fpirits would fall.
The failor, he fears not the roar of the feai,
But with courage all danger furmounts ;
O’er his bifcult and cann, he repofes at eafe.
And with pleafure each adllon recounts.
The foldier is happy in dreadful campaign.

What could greater to mortals be giv’n ?
The peafant o’erjoy’d fees his fields teem with com.
On the hills he beholds the rich vine }
With gratitude fervent he rifes each mom,
All creation his pralfes rejoin ;

The fruit of his vintage rewards all his pains,
While at evening lus heart feels content.

SOEVER will be married,
before all things it is neceflary
that he fhould hold the conjugal faith,
and the conjugal faith is this—the man
is flerti and the woman is fiefh, and
yet they arc not two hut one flefli.
The man is fuperior to the woman
and the woman is inferior to the man,
yet both arc equal, and the woman
fhall govern the man.
The woman is commanded to obey
the man, but the man muft fubmit to
the woman 5 for there is one domini
on nominal of the hufband, and ano
ther real of the wife, and yjpt thole are
not two dominions but one dominion,
for like as we are compelled by the
form of matrimony, to acknowledge
that wives Ihould obey their hulbands,
fo are we forbidden by the conftant
pradice to fay, that they Ihould be at
all influenced by any but their own
The man was not created for the
woman, but the woman for the man,
and yet the man lhall be the flave of
the worffan, and the woman the ty
rant of the man ; fo that ip all things
as aforefaid, the fubje^lionof the fu
perior to the inferior is to be believed.
He therefore that will be married, muft
then think of the conjugal faith.
Furthermore, it is neceflary (to fub-
milSve matrimony) that he alfo believe
rightly the infalibility of the wife.
For the right faith is, that we believe
and confefs that the wifd^ is fallible
