NOTES

"...he hath seen men drove up and down the streets, with a great tub or barrel opened in the sides, with a hole in one end to put through their heads, and so cover their shoulders and bodies, down to the small of their legs, and then close the same, called the new-fashioned cloak, and so make them march to the view of all beholders; and this is their punishment for drunkards and the like." [page 140]. The punishments described herein include The Ducking-Stool, The Pillory, Punishing Authors and Burning Books, The Jougs, The Stocks, The Drunkard's Cloak, and Various Gibbet-Lore.;
