A dainty new Dialogue between HENRY and ELIZABETH. / Being the good Wives Vindication, and the bad Husbands Reformation. / This new composed gallant Ditty, is to be sung in Town and City. / This Ballad is both compriz'd and penn'd / To teach bad Husbands how their lives to mend: / All you good Wives, the which bad Husbands have, / For your own good, let me this favour crave, / One Penny on this Ditty to bestow, / And carry it to your Husbands for to show; / It may in time make you twice over glad, / When as you see him good that was so bad.
