THE YOUNG=MANS VICTORY / Over the POVVER of the DEVIL. / Or, Strange and VVonderful News from the City of LONDON; /Being a full and true Relation of a Vertuous Young-Man, who being but Fifteen years of Age, living in the Parish of St. Giles's, was wonderfully / tempted by the Devil: Discovering the Baits of the Devil, and how he followed him from place to place, wheresoever he did go, still tempting to / leave his School, and to fly from Godliness, and to follow him, and he would furnish him with Baggs of Gold and Silver, promising to show him / all the Pleasures and Happiness that this World could afford, if he would but agree to follow his ways and take his Counsell. But this Youth having a / stedfast Faith in Christ, made the Devil this Answer: Be gone from me thou wicked and infernal Spirit, and tempt me no more, for I am sure I shall enjoy / all the Pleasures and Felicities that Heaven can afford, amongst all the Angels and Saints in Christ; therefore be gone from me thou wicked Deluder of poor Souls: / I value not thy Bags of Gold and Silver, nor all the Pleasures thou canst give me in this World, when thou, like a false deluding Serpent, wouldst have me to / burn in Hell flames with thee. Whereupon the Youth immediately fell down upon his Knees, praying to Almighty God, that he might be able to o- / vercome the Wiles and Temptations of the subtile Deceiver.
