The Venturing Lover, / Or, John and Batties Wooing. / This Young Man he did Love this Maiden dear / But made as if for her he did not care, / For he her Fort did strive to enter / But she in battle with him would not venture, / And so to save each others Life / They both consented to be Man and Wife.
