The Forc'd Marriage. / Or, Unfortunate Celia. / When Old Fools do a Wooing go to those / Who are Young-girls, they Court their cruel foes, / The Old-man sees he can't prevail with tongue, / But finds t[h]at young ones, love to sport with young: / He to the Virgins Parents makes redress, / And doth the n[u]mber of his Bags express; / Which takes away her Fathers heart by stealth, / He weds her not to him, but to his Wealth. / VVhich being done, she loaths his weak embraces, / And throws her self on Ruinous Disgraces.
