Notes Printed on the verso of EBBA 30983, entitled "The true Lovers Happiness / Or, Nothing venture, / Nothing have. / Shewing how an Apprentice made bold to court his Masters Daughter, got / her good will, and married her unknown to her Parents yet afterwards / her father feeling they loved each other so intirely, he gave them a considerable portion of money to set up with, and now they live in a happy / condition; this may serve for a pattern for others. / Their complements to you I will rehearse / According as they are printed down in verse."
