The tree of temperance. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Matt., VII, 16. Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, Isaiah L.V.17. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, Ephesians V.18. And if he thirsts give him water to drink, Prov. XXV. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth fruit in his season, his leaf also shall not wither & whatsoever he doeth shall prosper, Psalms 1.3. The trunk of the tree is inscribed "Health Strength of body", the left branch "Prosperity", and the right branch "Happiness". The names of virtues and rewards are inscribed on spheres (fruits) hanging from the branches.
