Paul's while "holding vp his muckender [handkerchief] for his booke"; tolling the Christ Church bell for the chicken his nurse killed for supper; selling a gentleman's boots for a groat, because it was the only amount of money he knew; and falling drunkenly asleep in a cellar for two days, while half the city searched for him.
