A Merry Dialogue / BETWEEN A / Doctor and a Dairy Maid. / This Doctor being deeply foxifi'd / As he along the Road did chance to ride / He overtook a Lass that he did like / And thought that she would stand while he did strike. / But she being honest, vertuous, chaste and wise / Did fail the Doctor yet she got a prize. / Thus fortune did befriend this honest Maid, / Pray hearken what they to each other said.
