Some Pepper for your Salad?

If in acknowledgment of the favor of his Redemption, he will but pay a pepper corn, he shall be restored to his former possession, and much more. (Richard Baxter)

If we magnifie one grain of our own pepper to that height that we make it a part of that righteousness by which to stand at Gods tribunall this one grain will sink us down to hell, so hot a poyson is Mr. Brs pepper-corn. (John Crandon)

  1. Great pair of quotes. Thanks for finding and posting them. Crandon? Ah, so many great 17th century authors, and time is hastening on at an ever accelerating pace.
