|Notes:||"Wherein is experimentally demonstrated, I. That they are all govern'd by a Queen. II. The amazing beauty and dignity of her person. III. Her extraordinary authority and power. IV. Their exceeding loyalty and unparallel'd love to their queen. V. Their sex, male and female. VI. The manner of their breeding. VII. Their wars. VIII. Their enemies, with directions plain and easy how to manage them, both in straw-hives and transparent boxes; so that with laying out but four or five pounds, in three or four years, if the summers are kind, you may get thirty or forty pounds per annum."
