Schott's Miscellany 18 June 2009

Napoleon was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo (1815)


ON THUNDER

Some write (their ground I see not) that SUNDAY's thunder should bring the death of learned men, judges, and others; MONDAY's thunder the death of women; TUESDAY's thunder plenty of grain; WEDNESDAY's thunder the death of harlots; THURSDAY's thunder plenty of sheep and corn; FRIDAY's thunder the slaughter of a great man, and other horrible murders; SATURDAY's thunder a general plague and great dearth.

---Prognostication Everlasting of right good Effect, Leonard Digges, 1556


After three days men grow weary of a wench, a guest, and rainy weather.
Benjamin Franklin (1706-90)
