The Country-mans delight: / Or, the Happy Wooing: / Being the Successful Loves of / JOHN the SERIVNG-MAN, / In his Courting of / JOAN the DAIRY-MAID. / John's humble suit Joan does long time withstand, / Till his known Wealth her favour does command; / Then mustering all her Smiles, to him she bends, / And to the bargain straight he condescends: / Now no Objection can retard her Love, / If not of him, she does his Wealth approve; / So women for base Gold their Beauty sell, / To whom so e're bids most, that cursed spell, / Fix'd deep into their Souls, commands them still, / And guider the Reins of their tempestous will.
