Maior of this renowned Metropolis

Rights Honourable,
COncerning the Dignity of your place, and
Magnificence of your Inaugaration: the firſt
equalling, the latter precelling all the famous
Magiſtracies in Chriſtendome. I ſhall not
much ſtand to diſpute, as being a Maxim
already granted: yet one thing I cannot omit,
as moſt worthy remarke; namely, how many
of like Judicature have borne the Sword in this famous and flo -
riſhing Gitty, who breathed their firſt ayre in the Country of
Lincolne; from whence you deriue your ſelfe, as Sir John Stock -
Mercer, borne at Bratoſt, L. Maior 147-. Sir Nicholas Ald -
Mercer, borne at Spalding, L. Maior 1499. Sir William
Fiſhmonger, at Boſten, L. maior 1500. Sir
William Forman Haberdaſher, at Grainsnorow, L. Maior 1538.
Sir Henry Hobbershorns Merchant-Tayler, at Wadingsworth,
L. Maior 1546. Sir Henry Amcoats Fiſhmonger, at Altrop,
L. Maior 1548. Sir John Langle Goldſmith, at Altrop, L. Ma
ior 1576. Sir John Allet Fiſhmonger, at Limbergh, L. Maior
1590. Sir George Bowles Grocer at Goſperton, L. Maior 1617.
and now in preſent your Honored ſelfe Nicholas Raynton
at Heighington, L. Maior 1632, not ſo many hauing attained to
the ſame Dignity bred in any one County, the City of London

The Epistle Dedicatory
excepted. Worthy observation it is alſo, that at one time in the
raigne of Queene Elizabeth, moſt of the Prime Officers of
State, were Country-men of the ſame County: As the Arch -
biſhop of Canterbury, Whitgurſt: the L. High Treaſurer of
England, L. Burbeigh Cecill, the L. Keeper of the Great
Seale, Sir John Puckering, Viz. Chamberlaine and Chancel -

neuer had any Magiſtrate a more generall, free, and af -
fectionate Election even to this present Yeere 1632. Now
Time and your owne Demerit Right Honourable, haue
rayſed you to this Eminence and DigniCty, the vniversall eye
and expectation of all men is vpon you, who well know, that
a wife Magiſtrate preferres Conſideration before Concluſion:
And (according to the ſaying of King Ageſilaus) Magiſtrates
who gouerne by iust Lawes, mſt ſtrengthen them by good
example: iudge by Proudience, Wiſedome and Iustice, and
defend by Power, Care and Vigilance; and thus I humbly

THE Title of the Show is Scaturigo, i.
the Fountaine and Well-ſpring of
all the Liberall Arts, and Sciences,
or Myſteries whatſoeuer; which as
they haue beene long ſince planted,
and incouraged: so they are at this
time the more liberally watered, and
therefore more plenteouſly inriched by their bleſſed Mo -
ther and bountifull Nurſe, the moſt illuſtrious Citty Lon -
; for the firſt, namely, the Arts and Studies of the
Braine; How many grammer Schooles haue beene by
her and her indulgent Children erected (through all, or
most of all) the Shieres and Counties of England, to the
propagation and aduancement of Learning, to the fur
niſhing of the Accademics with Students, and from them,
the foure flouriſhing Kingdomes (now vnder the Sword
and Scepter of his moſt Sacred Maieſty) with proufound
Theologiſts, expert Phiſitians, learned Philoſophers,
skillfull Mathematitians, &c. If any man deſire to bee fur -

English Annalls, where they may be plenteouſly satisfi -

much rather require Volumne.
So much for the Studies of the Braine.
Now for all other Sciences, Myſteries, Trades, and
Manufacturers, (including aſwell Merchants as Mechan -
nicks) What City in Europe yeeldeth more plenty?
more variety? In ſo much that by reſon of Bartering,

his Harpe, and not to feare any thing. The next day
(being farre from ſhoare) the Marriners hauing notice
whate Treaſure hee had aboord, conſpired amoungſt them -

begged of them ſo much reſpite, that habited as hee was,
hee might ſing one funerall farewell to his Harpe, which
granted, ſo ſweete was his Harmony, that the Dolphins
came ſporting about the ſhippe, as much delighted with
his Muſicke: amoungſt whom hee caſt himſelfe, and they
ſupported him, and bore him backe vnto Corinth; where
hauing told this wonderment, the King graciouſly enter -

Nor Tagus boaſting of her golden Sands

Can Paralell thy Riches; Not Caiſter
Famous for Swannes, nor Po her cleere ſtreamſd ſiſter:
Winding Meander, nor yet Simois Flood,
Which Fame faith, at the Troian Seige ran blood.

Choaspes, that almoſt guirts Perſia round:
Nor Iſſa, by Darrius death renown’d

What Paris Some, or Romes swifts Tyber bee

And my Crownd Dolphin Doth proclaime the thus,
Th’art the choyſe darling of Oceanus.
And if thou haſt a Genius, (as ’tis gueſt
All Rivers have?) know wherein th’art moſt bleſt.
Not that thy Bankes are ſo defenc’t and ſtable,
Nor within Land th’art ſo far nauigable,
Not for thy Flux and Refluxe, (Ebbs and Tydes)
Or the rich Meddowes bordering round thy ſides
Not that being pleasſd, th’art ſmooth, being angry, curl’d
Nor thy rare Bridge not equald through the World
Not for tho’e goodly Buildings reard ſo hye,
To make thee live to perpetuity.
Not for thy ſpacious Limits and Extents,
(And yet all thoſe vnriuald Ornaments.)
But if I truely ſhall to thee commend,
That Bliſſe wherein thou others dost tranſcend,
Behold this Day the Honour and the State
Of this thy Great and God like Magistrate.
Not waited on by Boats made of the Trunks

Londons Scaturigo
Of Canes, or hollowed trees, or petty Iunks,
Or Wanton Gondelaes: but Barges, ſtrong,
And richly deckt, who as they plowe along
Thy breſt, with their smooth keels to make their way,
See how the Wind doth with their ſtreamers play,
How beautiful thy Waves, how thronged thy shores,
And what a Muſick’s when they ſtrike their Oares
To ſee them with Grave Magiſtrates ſo Man’d,
Powerfull by Sea, and potent too by Land.
So many Sciences, and Miſteries
Diſtinguiſht in to ſeuerall Companies,
In ſundry bottomes: and each Art and Trade
Knowne by Flags and Pendants here diſplaid.
And London which Metropolis we call,
The Fount and Scaturigo of them all.
Grave Praetor, now this Day to be inueſted
The Head of al theſe, paſſe on unmoleſted
In your great Inauguration proceede,
Which to your laſting Honour is decreed.
In your returne baske you ſhall under ſtand,
Thoſe Trimphs that attend on you by Land.
Perseus, Andromeda with the Sea-monſter are onely
ſhrewed vpon the Water, but their expreſſion I referre to
their place by Land.
Of which the firſt preſentment is in Pauls Church -
yard: Namely, St. Katherine, Patroneſſe of this wor -
ſhipfull Company, vpon a Lyon, bordered about with the
Sea-waues. (the armes of the Haberdaſhers) ſhee is
Crowned as being a Queene, bearing a Wheele in her
hand, full of ſharpe cutting Irons, the Embleame of her
Martyrdome: Her attendants beautifie the plat-forme,
are foure Virgins, Humilty the firſt: Of which Vertue
Seneca thus ſpeaketh, Laus vera humili ſepe contingit vi-

ro. the ſecond Truth, which ſcaleth the Heavens, il -
luſtateth the Earth, maintaineth Iuſtice, gouerneth
Cioties, kils Hatred, cheriſheth Love, and diſcouereth
Treaſons: The third Zeale, of which it is thus layd; Of -
fice is ſtrenghthned by Zeale, and Zeale maketh authority in
, The fourth, Constancy: according with that of
Lucan, Intrepidus quieunque daitis mihi Numina mortem

All which are neceſſary in a Magiſtrate, as needfull in a
Martyr: Of the Etymologie of her Name, her Royal
Birth, her Breeding, her LIfe and Death in the laſt yeeres
Diſcourſe I gaue a large Charactar, and therefore pre -
ceede to her Speech, which is as followeth.
St. Katherines Speech.

Doth any wonder, why St. Katherine, ſhee
The Patroneſſe of this faire Companie
Is mounted on a Lyon? Let such know,
That (being a Queen) this kingly beaſt doth owe
Mee duty by instinct: Beſides I come
Both with Virginity and Martyrdome,
Sainted moreouer, and (of theſe) the leaſt
Able to tame the moſt inſulting Beaſt
But this is hee the billowes doth deuide,
And therefore iuſtly on his backe I ride:
All theſe belonging to this Worthy Trade,
The Lyon, sea-waues and thePrincely Mayde.
That for the Armes: note next what I diſplay
In this my Banner here, Serue and obey:
Rare Morall in this Motto, (if well ſcand)
For Kings are Gods, Viz-gerents, and command
By Sword and Scepter: and by their good Grace
Can preferre others both to power and place.
As you this Day behold this Carlet worne,

Londons Scaturigo
And Sword of Iuſtice thus in publike borne;
The Cap of Maintenance, Coller of Eſses,
(Which Trauellers in all their large progreſſes
Can in no City parallell, thatſs ſcite
In th’earths deuiſion, knowne quadrupepertite:)
So, who’oeuer ſhall himselfe oppose
Agaiſt this Magiſtrate, (as one of thoſe)
The king deputes as Chiefe) himſelfe hee brings
To bee a rebell to the King of Kings:
Far be it an arch-traytor in that kind
’Mong’t all the’e goodly Companies, (combind
In mutuall loue and league:) ’hould dare to appeare
In the faire Progreſſe of this Praetors yeare.
Behold, and view who my attendants bee,
Conſtancy, Zeale, Truth, and Humility.
Be conſtant then vnto this Graue Lord Maior,
And the two Shrieuves that his aſſiſtants are;
Choſe by the publicke Voyce and Senats Doome,
As Cenſors, and the Tribunes were in Rome;
Doe it in Zeale, in Truth, and all ſubmiſſion,
That their be found no croſse interpoſition
Betwixt Power and Obedience, ſo ſhall all
Arts, Myſteries, and Trades Mechannicall,
Thriue=, proſper, and increaſe, ſo long as they
Honour the King, the Magiſtrate obey.
The ſecond ſhow by Land.
This diſcouereth Andromeda the Daughter of King Ce -
and Caſſiopeia, tide to a Rocke, and ready to bee
deuoured by a Sea-monſter: But reſcued by a Perſeus the
Sonne of Jupiter and Danae, who is mounted vpon a pe -
, or Winged-horſe, who is ſayd to bee bred from
Neptune and Meduſa, and in Hellicon a Mountaine in Bo -
, ſtriking a Stone with his hoofe, opend that Foun

Londons Scaturigo
taine called (from him) Hyppocrene, much celebrated
by the Muſes. Perſeus in one hand hath an Harpe or croo -
ked Sword, and vpon his left arme a Shield with a Gor -
head figured therein: in Perſeus are comprehended
all the prime Vertues acquired in a Noble Magiſtrate: In
Andromeda Chaſtity and Innocence: I cannot heere inſiſt
vpon the Hyſtory, but rather referre the Reader to Ovid,
who hat moſt elegantly expreſſed it; but come to the
Speech dliuered by Perseus.
Perſeus his Speech
I Perſeus, Ioues ſonne, borne of Heavenly Stede,
Mounted vpon a ſwift Pegaſian Steede,
Who with his hoofe strooke vp the Muſes Well,
Whence Euthusiasma’s and hie Ruptures ſwell.
As through the ayery tract I forc’t my way,
Spyde here the Louely Maide Andromeda,
Cheynd to a Rocke, on whom (so Fate hath lowerd)
Ready by a Sea-whale to be devourd.
Know there is figured in this Princely Maide,
Cha’tity, and Innocence, which Diuine ayde
Is ready to aſſiſt ſtill from aboue,
By one or other of the Sonnets of Ioue.
Of which denomination, none, more Grace
Can claime than you, who are in power and place,
And hold this Day in chiefe; then Perſeus like,
Keepe that your Sword still drawne, ready to ſtrike;
Making ſuch Monſters of your Iuſtice taſt,
Who inſidiate the Innocuous and the Chaste.
Obſerue (Graue Sir) the Armesw and Shield I beare,
Such as your ſelfe, and others ought to weare,
Both for Defence and Offence: and in me
Embleam’d, all thoſe prime Vertues that ſhould be
In Perſons of your Power, my Sword reſembles

Londons Scaturigo
Vnpartiall Iustice, at which guilt still trembles;
My Winged=horſe, Celerity and Speed:
In doing it, that no illegal deed
May paſſe unſcourged, and there be tooke no reſt,
Vntil reliefe be given to the opprest.
This Shield that beares the Gorgons head imblaz’d,
Vpon whose Snaky locks who euer gaz’d,
Were turn’d to ſtatues of cold ſenſeleſſe ſtone,
Is that (Graue Magistrate) you now put on.
Whilſt on your Arme you weare this conſtant Targe,
Bearing your ſelfe vprightly in your Charge.
All ſuch as ſhal in Malice or in pride
Your Purple State detract from, or deride,
Diſcouer this before them, it hath power
To freeze them into Marble the ſame houre.
Strive you to imitate what I haue done,
Since you this day, are Perseus and Ioues ſonne.
The third ſhow by Land.
This is more mimicall then Materiall, and inſerted for
the Vulgar, who rather loue to feaſt their eyes, then to
banquet their eares: and therefore though it bee allow -
ed place amongſt the reſt: (as in all Profeſſions wee ſee
Durces amongſt Doctors, Simple amongſt Subtle, and
Fooles intermixt with Wiſemen to fill vp number) as
doubting wheter it can well apollogy for itselfe or no, at
this time I affoord it no tongue.
The Fourth Show by Land.
The Right Honourable the Lord Maior in preſent,
though free of this Worſhipfull Company of hte Haber -
daſhers, (at whoſe ſole charge, the High Solemnity of
this Day is celebrated) yet was by Profeſſion a Mercer,
and his chiefe Trading was in Florence for Sattins, Taffi -
ties, and Sarſnets; in Luca for Taffaties and Sarſnets, in

Londons Scaturigo
Gene for Gene Veluets, Damasks, &c. In Bolognia for Sat -
tins, Cypreſſe, and Sarſnets. As alſo in Pyſa, now be -
cauſe the matterialls of which theſe Stuffes are amde, are
brougth from the fartheſt remote Countries vpon the
backs of Cammels, Mules, Dromidaries and Elephants:
I made choice of this Beaſt eſecially, of whoſe incom -
parable ſtrength and moſt pregnant vnderſtandeing, if any
deſire to be fully ſatisfied, I muſt referre them to Plilny,
but more eſſentially to Don Sebastiasn de Cobar -
rvias Orozco En el Teſero de la Leagua Castellana
, (from
whom Minſhaw Borrowed his Etymologicall Spaniſh
Dictionary) vpon the word Elephante, where are diuers
Stories of them, which but for the Grauity of the Author,
might almoſt appeare incredible. The Elephant is gui -
ded by an Indian, vpon his backe is a faire Caſtle furniſht
with change and variety of obiects, &c. the Speech deli -
uered by the Indian as followeth.
The Indians Speech.
NO beaſt of all the Wilderneſſe can vant
Like Strength or Wiſedome with the Elephant.
And therefore, (if conſiderd wel) none may
Better become the Triumphs of this Day.
What Hieroglificke can a man invent,
Embleame or Symbole, for a Gouernment
In this high nature, apter or more fit
Deuisſd before, or to be thought of yet.
He beares a caſtle (as this day wee ſee,)
But of what ſtrength and puissance must you bee
Supporting this Great Citty? who must lay
Your ſhoulders to a burden; such as may
Make Atlas shrinke beneath it; Temples, Towers
Rialtoes, ſpacious Manſions, Suburbe bowers.
A weight to make th’Heſperian Giant droope

Londons Scaturigo
And Hercules, (who bore up heaven) to ſtoope.Antomed Hectors Charister. Palimer: pilet to AEnea
Next, of what Vnderstanding, Apprehenſion,
What Iudgement, Knowledge, Wiſedome and Retnetion?
Of what Fore-fight? what Body and what Brain?
What an Antomedan to guide the raine
Of Steedes unmannag’d? what a Palinure
To ſteare this Helme? and ſuch a Barke aſſure
In a Sea troubled, where can be no truſt
In an vnconſtant Surge or angry Guſt?
Yet ſuch an Elephant we hope to finde
Of you, both in th’ability of Minde
And ſtrength of Arme, by that incouragement
The former paſſage of your life hath lent:
Showed in your Iudgement and Experience,
Your Grauity, and vnchang’d Temperance;
All generall Vertues that become ’uch State,
Behouefull in ſo Great a Magiſtrate:
So after Times unto your Fame ſhall ſtory
How you haue borne up in her pristine Glory
This flouriſhing City, not once ſhrinking under
So great a burden, (to ſucceſsiue wonder)
Since no skild Pilot better could command
By Sea, or expert Charicter by Land.
The fift ſhow by Land.
Is the Scaturigo or Fountaine of Vertue, from which
all Arts and Sciences are watered: I neede not to ſpend
Time in the deſcription thereof, it being able ſufficiently to
expreſſe it ſelfe, the nature thereof being in the Poeme
layd open euen vnto the meaneſt capacity. There are
twelue ſundry perſons to beautifie the Modell, ſuiting with
the number of the twelue Companies as the Saints that
patronizethem; and euer of them a Shielde on their arme,
bearing ther ſeueral Scuchions properly belonging to the

Londons Scaturigo
Hails. The Speech from the Fountaine is thus deliuered.
The Speech vpon the Fountaine.
TWelve houres twice told, diſtinuiſh night and Day,
Twelve Caeſars of the Iulian Line did ſway
Romes Empire, and in euery caſe of ſtriffe
Where Action’s tryde or if concerning life,
Twelue makes the Iury full: the Zodaiacke Lines
Are likewiſe fild by twelue Celeſtiall Signes,
Amongſt which one in your Emblazons borne
Is numbred by the name of Capricorne.
Twelue Sibills we account and they fore-told
Things happned ſince, although they ſpake of old
By twelue: the bleſt Word in the Church inſtated
Was at the firſt divuldg’d and propagated.
Twelue Companies you are in Chiefe, 12. heere
Pre’ent that number with tho’e Armes they beare.
And hence the Inundant Scaturigo growes,
Which through our Kingdomes large Dominions flowes,
By founded Scholes, by Colledges, by Trade,
By Trafficke, by Commerce, by Proiect layd.
For thrifty Bargaine and all competent Gayne,
Aswell ariſing from the Hand as Brayne.
London the Mother and the Fountaine stil’d
And you of all her Sonnes now elde’t Child;
(Heire to her good Workes) incourage ſtill
Thoſe pious Acts, and by Example fill
Voide places with the like, and in this State
You beare, as being now chiefe Magiſtrate:
So order this your numerous Charge, that they
May god, the King, your ſelfe Serue and Obey.
A word or two concerning the ſupporters of the Armes
of this Worſhipfull Company. Parmeniſius a Greeke Au -
thor thus relates, King Melliseus who ruled in Creete, had

Londons Scaturigo

two Daughters, to whom Jupiter in his Infancy was ſent
to be nurſed, to preſerue him from the fury of his Father
Saturne: but they being at that time dry-breſted, cauſed
him to ſucke of a Goate called Amalkthea, by whoſe Milke
hee was nouriſhed, till the time that hee came to be wey -
ned, (this Goate vſually brought forth two twins) Iupiter
after in requitall of ſo great a benefit receiued by her, tran -
flated her amongſt the Starres. This Goate is that Capricornus one of the 12. Celeſtiall Signes, The two Kidds
(hertwins) placed in the Heauens alſo, were first obſerued
by the great Aſtrologer Cleostrates Tenedius. The laſt
Speech at Night is deliuere3d by Arion, which is a ſhort
commemoration of the former paſſages of the Dayes Tri -
umph in theſe wordes following.
NOW hath the Sun put off his golden beames,
Watring his hot Steeds in cold Iſter ſtreames,
And tyr’d with his dayes trauell, in the Weſt
Tooke up his Inne: But ere you goe to reſt,
Remember what Arion ſtill proclaimes
In the due honour of the noble Thames.
Next, how your Queene-like Saint directs the way
For you to rule, for others to obey.
Then to be cal’d Ioues Sonne you have the Grace
And that in Perſeus figured is your Place.
That in this able Elephant’s implyde
Your Strength to beare, your iudgement to decyde.
Laſt, that you are the Spring and Fountaine made
To water euery Science, Art, and Trade;
Obſeruing thoſe, your Honour ſhall ſhine bright,
