More Weapon Salves

Also, the book I got the previous quote from has the most fantastic extended metaphor title thing going on, which merits a post of its own. The top bit reads:
Doctor Fludd's Answer unto M. Foster
The Squeezing of Parson Foster's Sponge, ordained by him for the wiping away of the Weapon Salve.

Wherein the Sponge-bearer's immodest carriage and behavior towards his brethren is detected; the bitter flames of his slanderous reports are by the sharp vinegar of Truth corrected and quite extinguished; and lastly, the virtuous validity of his Sponge, in wiping away of the Weapon-Salve, is crushed out and clean abolished.
