IN FAVOR OF TOBACCO.





Much victuals serves for gluttony

To fatten men like swine;

But he's a frugal man indeed

That with a leaf can dine,

And needs no napkin for his hands,

His fingers' ends to wipe,

But keeps his kitchen in a box,

And roast meat in a pipe.



SAMUEL ROWLANDS: _Knave of Clubs_ (1611).
