Embedded text or transcriptYe'ad best - as 'the Ancients Say wisely, Have a care o th' main chance, And Look
before you ere you leap; For As you sow, ye're like to reap: And were y'as good as
George-a-Green, I should make bold to turn again; Nor am I doubtful of theissue In a just
quarrel, and mine is so. - Canst thou refuse to bear thy part I'th'public Work, base as thou art?
To higgle thus for a few blows, To gain thy Knight an op'lent spouse, Whose wealth his bowels
yearn to purchase, Merely for the int'rest of the Churches?
