THE / Witty Chamber-Maid; / OR, / Dick the Weaver strangely Cheated: / A Weaver seemingly was tost, / Vext, tormented, strangely crost; / Because the maid was Coy and shye, / Till she at length her Wits did try; / He could no answer of her take, / Nor his importunate Suit forsake: / He quickly found the Effects thereof, / With many a flounting jeer and scoff.
