Ballad Title The Crafty MISS: / Or, An Excise man well fitted. / Being a true Relation of an Excise-man, who lately in the County of Kent, had / received the Sum of Four-score-pounds and lighting into the company of a / Crafty Miss who gave him the Chouse for it all; and riding away with his / Gelding, left in the stead a Mare which she had stole, for which Mare he was / Arraigned, and narrowly escaped the severe penalty of the Law: Which may / be a sufficient warning to all Excise-men far and near, to amend their lives, to hate a Miss, and love their Wives.
