Erasmus.

Ste oportet ad tibrum, presertim miscellanei generis, legendum accedere lectorem, ut solet ad convivium conviva civilis.
Coaxirator annititur omnibus satisfacere; et tamen si quid apponitur, quod hujus sut illius palato non respondeat, et hic et ille
ortage dissimulant, et alia fercula probant, ne quid contristent convivatorem.

A reader should sit down to a book, especially of the miscellaneous kind, as a well-behaved visitor does to a banquel. The
master of the feast exerts himself to satisfy his guests ; but ls, after all his care and pains, something should appear on the table
that does not suit this or that person's taste, they politely pass it over without notice, and commend other dishes, that they may not

distrese a kind bost.
