The Seamen and Souldiers / Last Farwel to their Dearest Jewels. / He must be gone, the Fates have so decreed, / To serve his King and Countrey in their need: / In fight against the Dutch upon the Main, / Yet he's in hopes to see his Love again: / He chears her up, and bids she should not Mourn, / But wait with patience for his safe return.
