Notes Printed on the recto of EBBA 33569, titled "Dead and Alive: / This DITTY out of Glocestershire was sent, / To London, for to have it put in Print: / Therefore draw near, and listen unto this, / It doth concern a Man that did Amiss; / And so to shun the Anger of his WIFE, / He thought with Poyson for to end his Life: / But instead of Poyson he drank Sack, / For which his Wife did soundly pay's back."
