Allestree, Richard: The Government of the Tongue V 1.0. 02 Apr 2014

This is a conversion to mobi format of weatherwax's 2010 epub upload. Here is the original summation from weatherwax:

Quote:
Richard Allestree or Allestry (1619 28 January 1681) was a Royalist churchman and provost of Eton College from 1665.

Extract from the book's Preface:
The Government of the Tongue has ever been justly reputed one of the most important parts of human Regiment. The Philosopher and the Divine equally attest this: and Solomon (who was both) gives his suffrage also; the persuasions to, and encomiums of it, taking up a considerable part of his book of Proverbs. I shall not therefore need to say anything, to justify my choice of this subject, which has so much better Authorities to commend it. I rather with that it had not the super-addition of an accidental fitness grounded upon the universal neglect of it, it now seeming to be an art wholly out-dated. For though some lineaments of it may be met with in books, yet there is scarce any footsteps of it in practice, where alone it can be significant. The attempt therefore of reviving it I am sure is seasonable, I wish it were half as easy.
