Many of these rules have to do with spit (a.k.a. spittle, looches, saliva, etc.). I’ve slightly updated their spelling:
- Spit not in the fire, nor stoop low before it [lest we see your butt!].
- Bedew no man’s face with your spittle, by approaching too near him when you speak.
- Kill no vermin as fleas, lice, or ticks in the sight of others. If you see any filth or thick spittle [on the ground], put your foot upon it...
- If you soak bread in the sauce, let it be no more than what you put in your mouth at a time.
- Neither spit forth the stones of any fruit upon a dish nor cast anything under the table.
- Put not another bit into your mouth till the last one be swallowed. Let not your morsels be too big for the gowls [jowels? mouth?].
- Cleanse not your teeth with the table cloth, napkin, fork or knife, but if others do it let it be done with a pick tooth. [And watch out for the spittle!]
