On receiving a love letter that has any particular declaration in it, lay it wide open; then fold it in nine folds, pin it next to your heart, and thus wear it till bedtime; then place it in your left hand glove, and lay it under your head.
- If you dream of gold, diamonds, or any costly gems, your lover is true, and means what he says.
- If of white linen, you will lose him by death.
- If of flowers, he will prove false.
- If you dream of his saluting you, he is at present false and means not what he professes, but only to draw you into a snare,
