      The Works of John Wesley v. 26 p.237 (OUP 1982) has a footnote that the reading 'souls', '... is almost certainly a misreading of Wesley's tremulous writing of 'sculls'...'. The note goes on that various Victorian writers agree in referring this proverb to St. Chrysostom, '...but so far this has not been traced in his writings'.
