011.WN1.001 Fond woman which wouldst haue thy hvsband die
011.WN1.002 And yet complainst of his great Ielosie
011.WN1.003 If swolne with poyson hee lay in his bed,
011.WN1.004 His boddie with a sore barke couered
011.WN1.005 Drawinge his breath as thick and short as cann
011.WN1.006 The Nimblest Crotchetings Musitian%T:
011.WN1.007 Readie with loathsome vomitinge to spue
011.WN1.008 His Soule out of one hell into a newe,
011.WN1.009 Made deafe with his poore kyndreds howlinge cries,
011.WN1.010 Begginge with feaw faind teares, great Legacies.
011.WN1.011 Thou wouldst not weepe but iolie, and frolicke bee,
011.WN1.012 As a slaue which to morrowe should bee free.
011.WN1.013 Yet weepst thou when thou seest him hungerlie
011.WN1.014 Swallowe his owne death, harts baine Ielousie?
011.WN1.015 O giue him many thanks hees courteous
011.WN1.016 That in suspectinge kyndlie warneth vs;
011.WN1.017 Wee mvst not as wee vsd flout openlye

011.WN1.029 Into Another countrye, and doe it there
011.WN1.030 Wee plaie in another howse, what should wee feare?
011.WN1.031 There wee will scorne his howsehold Policies,
011.WN1.032 His sillie plotts, and Pensionarie Spies:
