And elfewhere he intimates that What the minitrels fometiines gained

in dice and drinking. 
One of Rutebeuf s contemporaries in the fame profeflion, Colin Mufet, 
indulges in {imilar complaints, and fpeaks bitterly of the want of generofity 
difplayed by the great barons of his time. In addreiiing one of them 
who had treated him ungeneroufly, he fays, " Sir Count, I have fiddled 
before you in your hoftel, and you neither gave me a gift, nor paid 
me my wages. It is difcreditable behaviour. By the duty I owe to 
St. Mary, I cannot continue in your fervice at this rate. My purfe is ill 
furnifhed, and my wallet is empty."

He proceeds to Itate that when he went home to his wife (for Colin 
Mufet alfo was a married minflrel), he was ill received if his purfe 
and wallet were empty ; but it was very different when they were full. His 
Wife then fprang forward and threw her arms round his neck; {he took 
his wallet from his horfe with alacrity, while his lad conducied the 
animal cheerfully to the liable, and his maiden killed a couple of capons, 
and prepared them with piquant fauce. His daughter brought a comb for 
his hair. " Then," he exclaims, " I am matier in my own houfe."
