    Re: William Bourne. A Regiment for the Sea. 1574

    Hi George
    Bourne does indeed use the word "glasses" and not "glass".  I just double 
    checked it in case I had made a transcription error.  That does happen!
    I really had to slow down and read the characters and not the words, since the 
    urge to correct spelling errors was very strong.  I had to turn all the spell 
    and syntax checking off, simply because it was too distracting.  I do so love 
    the way that Bourne changes the spelling of a word within the same document 
    and sometimes even within the same sentence!  For example, wire is spelled, 
    "wire", "wier" and "wyer"; Bourne doesn't mean wire but rather a pin or nail 
    in this context.
    I spent a lot of time simply reading the document, using the 'it sounds like...' method.
    Best Regards
