Praise Of Ale

Dr. Still, though Bishop of Bath and Wells, seems not to have been over
fond of water; for thus he sings:--

"A stoup of ale, then, cannot fail,
To cheer both heart and soul;
It hath a charm, and without harm
Can make a lame man whole.
For he who thinks, and water drinks,
Is never worth a dump:
Then fill your cup, and drink it up,
May he be made a pump."
