Archee, his foole, standing by, told him, "If that be all, take no care: I'll teach your Majestie a way to raise his fleshe presently; and if he be not as fat as ever he wallow, you shall ride me." "I pr'y thee, foole, how?" sayd the King. " Why, doe but make him a Bishoppe, and I'le warrant you," sayes Archee.
