Newes from New-castle with / An Advertisement, / To all English men that (for the safety of themselves, their King and / Country) they would abandon the fond opinion, (which too many doe conceave) / of the Scots good meaning to England, which our fore-fathers have ever experi- / enced to the contrary; they having bin oftentimes found to bee circumventing / Machiavillians, and faythles truce breakers. This dity was written upon some oc- / casion of newes from the North; containing the Scots surprizing of New=Castle, / where they left three thousand men in Garison, with a briefe touch / of some of our brave Cavaleirs who manfully fought in that conflict.
