Proverb worth Preserving Hasty People Drink

the wine of life scalding hot Death the only

master who takes his servants without 

a character A sour faced wife fills

the tavern  Contents the mother of 

good Digestion when pride and poverty

marry together their children are 

want and crime  where hard work

kills ten idleness kills a hundred

men  Folly and pride walk side by side

he that borrows binds himself

with a neighbours rope he thats too 

good for good advice is too good for

his neighbours company  Friends 

and photographs never flatter

wisdoms always at home to those 

who call  the firmest friends

ask the Fewest Favours

(This item cannot have been put in the book by John Warren nor can the date be correct.  Firstly Punch was not published until 1841.  Also there is reference to photography.  The date then is likely to be 1900  but who added it to the diary?)
