Poor Tom the Taylor / His Lamentation. / Giving an Account how he pickt up a Miss near the Maypole in the Strand, and also how / he handed her to the Fair, where he treated her very generously, but according to the / old Proverb, sweet meat must have sower sauce, for while he was safe a snoring in Bed / she very dexterously picked his pocket, leaving him to pay the Reckoning, without / ever a penny in his Purse. This unfortunate disaster may well be a warning to all the / Taylors in or about London to forsake their old accustomed tricks, setting poor Tom be- / fore them as an Example.
