Case 1636

John and Anne Fletcher on St Dunsten’s Hill. Questo Tuesday 3 May 1597, 9.40 am. Lost a little bitch on Sunday last with 6 silver bells about her neck & greenish & bluish velvet collar. Lost in the Crutched Friar at 4 pm on Sunday last. A white bitch, on each side a red spot. Red cheeks, red ears & white star in the forehead & all the hinder parts white.
It seems it is not far from here but in some neighbours house.
[Astrology. Including: Mercury should signify the party [that] took up the dog … signifies a brother or sister to take it … But Mercury gives virtue to Venus signifies the dog shall be give away.]
[Right of chart] Hester Carkor alias Fletcher in Wood Street at the Roebuck was met in Fleet Street the 4 of May between 5 & 6 of the night carrying the dog.
