Case 18546

Robert Mathews’ brother-in-law of Whitfield came again for him. Tuesday 18 January 1603, 1.00 pm. Vide [see] January 11. He was Mr Thomas Spenser’s clerk. And took a surfeit and was drunken at London. After which time he took such a conceit that he was never well after, but his master’s maids made him believe sometimes that one of them loved him and sometimes another so that at length his mind ran altogether upon their love and he became sottish and now speaks he cannot tell what and talks idly never ceasing as long as he has any company. He sleeps well and eats whatever is given him.
