The Country-mans care in choosing a Wife: / OR, A young Batchelor hard to be pleased. / A wife he'l have, yet will be sure to chuse / One that he loves, the rest he doth refuse; / And many sorts of Maids, he by hath past, / Being all unfit for him; until at last / Upon a Farmers daughter he doth pitch, / That's a good Huswife, vertuous, neat, and Rich:
