In times past men were full of pity and compassion, but now there is no pity; for in London their brother shall die in the streets for cold, he shall lie sick at the door between stock and stock, I cannot tell what to call it, and perish there for hunger: was there ever more unmercifulness in Nebo?

When I was a scholar in Cambridge myself, I heard very good report of London, and knew many that had relief of the rich men of London : but now I can hear no such good report, and yet I inquire of it, and hearken for it ; but now charity is waxen cold, none helpeth the scholar, nor yet the poor.
