[24th Do not laugh too loud or] too much at any Publick [Spectacle].
25th Superfluous Complements and all Affectation of Ceremonie are to be avoided, yet where due they are not to be
26th In Pulling off your Hat to Persons of Distinction, as Noblemen, Justices, Churchmen &c make a Reverence,
bowing more or less according to the Custom of the Better Bred, and Quality of the Person. Amongst your equals expect not always
that they Should begin with you first, but to Pull off the Hat when there is no need is Affectation, in the Manner of Saluting and resaluting in words keep to the most usual Custom.
27th Tis ill manners to bid one more eminent
than yourself be covered as well as not to do it to whom it's due
Likewise he that makes too much haste to Put on his hat does not
well, yet he ought to Put it on at the first, or at most the Second
time of being ask'd; now what is herein Spoken, of Qualification
in behaviour in Saluting, ought also to be observed in taking of
Place, and Sitting down for ceremonies without Bounds is troublesome.
28th If any one come to Speak to you while
you are are Sitting Stand up tho he be your Inferiour, and when
you Present Seats let it be to every one according to his Degree.
29th When you meet with one of Greater Quality
than yourself, Stop, and retire especially if it be at a Door or
any Straight place to give way for him to Pass.
30th In walking the highest Place in most
Countrys Seems to be on the right hand therefore Place yourself
on the left of him whom you desire to Honour: but if three walk
together the mid[dest] Place is the most Honourable the wall is
usually given to the most worthy if two walk together.
31st If any one far Surpassess others, either
in age, Estate, or Merit [yet] would give Place to a meaner than
hims[elf in his own lodging or elsewhere] the one ought not to except
it, S[o he on the other part should not use much earnestness nor
offer] it above once or twice.
