A Journey from Norwich to Colcn. 05
Ships, they cut the chains in sunder, and so took the Town. In the
rooms are very good Paintings by Hemskerk, and Goltzius, as his Pro-
metheus and other Peeces ; but Cornelius van Haerlem most delighted
me, in his peeces of Herods killing the Innocent Children ; his feast of
the Gods, in which Vulcans foot is esteemed ata great rate; and ano-
ther Picture of a Frier and a Nun at a Collation, not inferiour to the

The old Mens house, or an Hospital for sixty aged persons, is large’
and handsome ; having a good Quadrangle and a Garden in it. The
Hospital also for the sick is very cleanly kept.
Here I first saw the manner of punissiing Malefactors by whipping
them with rods, which is more severe than I imagined; they lead them
to a Post upon a Scafsold, their hands tyed and by a Pally drawn up
as high as can be extended, and then an Iron fastned about their wast
to keep them steady ; in which stretched-out posture they receive some-
times fifty or sixty stripes or more, according to the merit os their of-
fence.

Not far from this place there is a great Water, or noted Lake called
Haerlem Meere about twenty Miles in length, which is frozen over in
hard Winters, and men swiftly travel over it by Hiding or in sleds.
