The Merry Mans Resolution / OR, / His last farewell to his former acquaintance, / Declaring how hee rambled up and down, / Through all the Suburbs of fair London Town, / Where pretty wenches hee did plenty find, / But some of them agreed not with his mind, / Till at the last by chance hee found out one, / Which pleas'd him best, so left the rest alone, / To her hee then cling'd close as I heard tell, / Made her his mate and bid the rest farewell.
