A New Voyage Vol. I.
is worth mentioning. * The Bifliop
hath a great Authority, tho’ it be a
free and Imperial City. ’Tip thought
to be almost as large as Francsort,
but poor, melancholy, and ill Peo-
pled. They /hewed me a House
that was lately sold for a Thousand
Crowns, which had been Let for-

Annum. There are many void places
in this City, in which they have
planted so many Vines, that (hey yield every
Year Fifteen Hundred Foudres of Wine : The

Fish is to stiew the Right of Filhing, which they

Pope Zachary removed the
See to Mentz, to pumsh the

contrary to his Faith, killed
a Man, whom he invited out
