The Master-piece of Love-songs: / A Dialogue betwixt a bold KEEPER and a LADY gay, / He woo'd his LORD's Daught[e]r, and carried the day; / But soon after Marriage was forc'd for to fight, / With his Lord and six Gentlemen, for his own Right; / He cut them, and hew'd them, and paid them w[i]th blows, / And made them his Friends, that before were his Foes.

    Notes Printed on the verso of EBBA 36477, "A Tryal of skill, performed by a poor decayed Gentlewoman, / Who cheated a rich Grasier of Sevenscore pound, and left him a Child to keep. / If you will know, then listen a while, / And you shall know that which will make you smile."
