a kind of morphew, which the above writer describes as a sort of whiteness which appears in the flesh of a ruddy man: he [is] clean;
from leprosy; this is observed, lest a person that is freckled and has a morphew should be mistaken for a leprous person; as every man that has some spots, failings, and infirmities, is not to be reckoned a wicked man.
