The Constant Couple, OR, / The Glory of True Love. / The Youngman prov'd in the Tryal just / The Maid wae fearful of him for to trust, / He told her plainly she should be his VVife / And he with her could live a happy life. / She told him she was loath to yield / But he in time at last did win the field / They made no more ado ner further strife. / But went tot'h Church and joyned Man and VVife.
