Par vraye voye de Justice.
A Esperance est donc complice,
Pour donner doctrine visible,

On met ensemble ces deux Deesses sur les autels,
à sçavoir Esperance & Nemesis: pource que ceste-cy
punit & chastie ceux qui s’enorgueillissent quand
ils ont le vent en poupe: & pource aussi qu’elle ne de-
fend pas seulement les esperances passans mesure, mais
encor elle les chastie.
