The natural faculty or virtue resides in the liver, and is generally governed by Jupiter, Quasi Juvans Pater; its office is to nourish the body, and is dispersed though the body by the veins. From this are bred four particular humours: Blood, Choler, Flegm, and Melancholy.
Of all these humours blood is the chief; all the rest are superfluities of blood; yet are they necessary superfluities, for without any of them man cannot live. Namely; Choler is the Fiery superfluities, Flegm, the Watery; Melancholy, the Earthly.
