Notes

Divinity

I doe suppose it to bee onely this
That Poets know their insufficience is,
That were earth Paper, and Sea inke, they know
‘T were not enough great Hempseeds worth to show. I muse the Pagans, with varietie,
Of godles Gods, made it no Deity. 

Taylor, John, The Praise of Hemp-Seed. With the Voyage of Mr. Roger Bird and the Writer hereof, in a Boat of browne-Paper, from London to Quinborough in Kent.. 1630. Folio Part III, page 62. Renascence Editions
