Messala Corvinus forgot his owne name. One by a blow with a stone forgot all his learning. Another by a fall from a horse forgot his mothers name & kinsfolkes. A young student of Montpelier by a wound lost his memory so that he was faine to be taught the letters of the Alphabet againe. The like befell a Franciscan frier after a fever Thucidides writes of some who after theire recovery from the greate pestilence at Athens forgot the names & persons of theire freinds & themselves too not knowing who they were or by what names they were called.
