Charity — “By Saint,” HAMLET, iv. 5. 56. “We read in the martyrology on the first of August,— ‘Romæ passio sanctarum virginum, Fidei, Spei, et Charitatis, quæ sub Hadriano principe martyriæ coronam adeptæ sunt.’” Douglas's Criterion, p. 68, cited by Ritson. (So, in The Faire Maide of Bristowe, 1605: “Now by Saint Charity, if I were iudge,
A halter were the least should hamper him.”
Sig. D 3 verso. )
