Of naturall heate.

Moost myghty kynge I requyre the to study the maner to kepe the naturall heate of thy body, with the moysture therof, in the which two thynges lyeth the helthe of thy persone. And knowe thou that the destruccyon of the body cometh in two thynges, one is naturall, and the other agaynst nature. And for the contraryte of the complexyon of man, and whan aege surmounteth the body it behoveth for to dye. Other wyse unnaturally by adventure, as by wepen, or stones, or by sykenesse and lacke of helpe, or by venym, and other chaunces.
