Subject: Query: Con
In an Elizabethan allegorical MS, the following is part of an extended
description of Clementia.
"This scarfe fallynge downe from her shoulder & Commynge under her arme
shall cover her lyvely sprynge of redde rose water."
I've been unable to find any treatment of Clementia in which such a
spring (or rose water, or even roses, for that matter) is one of her
attributes. If anybody has any ideas, please let me know.
