He gives a reference to fo xi of this Letter Book for "malemonger" (i.e., a seller of "males,' or travelling bags), but here again he appears to have been guilty of a misreading (as well as of a wrong reference), if, as appears to be the case, he refers to John Pake de Yherefeld (supra, p. 47), who is described as "maltmonger".
