A Treatise of the Cohabitation Of the Faithful wit

This text is intended for users whose text readers cannot use the "real" (unicode/utf-8) version of the file.

In the original text, some vowels were written with an overline or tilde representing a following nasal (m or n). Although some combinations were more popular than others, there were no absolute rules; it seems to have been done primarily to make lines come out even. For this ASCII text they have been unpacked to their -m or -n form without further notation.

Some paragraph breaks in the original book were ambiguous: text ended at mid-line, but the following line was not indented. These are shown as single blank lines. Unambiguous paragraph breaks are shown with two blank lines. Sidenotes are shown in [[double brackets]] without other identification.

Spelling, punctuation and capitalization are unchanged. All virgules ("slash" /) are in the original. The printed book used "v" initially, "u" later in the word; sidenotes used "vv" for "w". Details about unusual spellings, printing errors and corrections are given at the end of the text.

Latin words in the body text were in Roman type, shown here with _lines_. A few words used unusual abbreviations, shown in [single brackets]. Greek words have been transliterated and shown between +marks+]
