Jews’ Sabbath.
 
In the Monasticon de Melsa, ii. pp. 134, 137, we read that a Jew at Tewkesbury fell into a cesspool, and Richard, Earl of Gloucester, passing by, offered to pull him out, but the Jew refused, saying—   1
       
“Sabbato nostra colo;
De stercore surgre nolo.”
   Next day, as the Earl was passing again, the Jew cried to him for help, when Gloucester replied—   2
       
“Sabbata nostra quidem,
Solomon, celebrabis ibidem.”
