"by-ends and silver demas doth agree:/ one calls, the other runs, that he may be/ a sharer in his lucre; no these do/ take up in this world, and no further go. " Now I saw, that just on the other side of the plain, the pilgrims came to a place where stood an old monument hard by the highway-side; at the sight of which they were both concerned because of the strangeness of the form thereof, for it seemed to them as if it had been a woman transformed into a pillar. Here, therefore, they stood looking and looking upon it, but could not for a time tell what they should make thereof. at last hopeful espied, written above, upon the head thereof, a writing in an unusual hand; but he, being no scholar, called to Christian (for he was learned) to see if he could pick out the meaning, so he came, and after a little laying of the letters together, he found the same to be this, 'remember lot's wife.'"
