004.SP1.004 A %1recreation%2, and skant Mappe of this.
004.SP1.005 My %1Mind%2, nor with Prides Itche, nor yet hath bene
004.SP1.006 Poisoned with %1Loue%2 to see, or to bee seene.
004.SP1.007 I had noe Suite there, nor new Sute to showe,
004.SP1.008 Yet went to %1Court%2. But as %1Glaze%2 w%5ch%6 did goe
004.SP1.009 To a %1Masse%2 in iest, catc'hd, was faine to disburse
004.SP1.010 The hundred %1Markes%2, w%5ch%6 is the Statutes Curse

004.SP1.013 As prone to all %1Ill%2, and of good, as forgett=
004.SP1.014 ffull, as proud, lustfull, and as much in debt,
004.SP1.015 As vaine, as witles, and as false as they
004.SP1.016 W%5ch%6 dwell at %1Court%2, for once going that way
004.SP1.017 Therefore I suffered thys; Towardes mee did runn
004.SP1.018 A thing more strang, then on %1Nilus%2 slyme the %1Sunne%2
004.SP1.019 Ere bredd; Or all w%5ch%6 into %1Noahs Arke%2 came.
004.SP1.020 A thing w%5ch%6 would haue pos'd %1Adam%2 to name,
004.SP1.021 Stranger then seven Antiquaries Studies,

004.SP1.037 Made of the accents, and best %1phrase%2 of these
004.SP1.038 Hee speakes one[sic] language: If strang Meates displease

004.SP1.121 Hee names a %1price%2 for euerie office paide;
004.SP1.122 Hee saies our %1Warres%2 thriue ill, because delaied.
004.SP1.123 That Offices are intaild, and that there are
004.SP1.124 Perpetuities of them, lasting as farr
004.SP1.125 As the last daie; and that great %1Officers%2
004.SP1.126 Doe with the %1Pyrates%2 share, and %1Dunkerkers%2.

004.SP1.128 Who loues %1Whores%2, who %1Boyes%2, and who %1Goates%2.
004.SP1.129 I more ama'zd then %1Circes Prisoners%2, when

004.SP1.133 To sucke mee in for hearing him: I found
004.SP1.134 That as burnt-veno'md %1Letchers%2 doe grow sound
004.SP1.135 By giuing others their %1Sores%2, I might grow
004.SP1.136 Guiltie, and hee free; Therefore I did showe
004.SP1.137 All signes of loathing; but since I >%Yc%Z%Ye%Z< in
004.SP1.138 I must paie mine, and my forefathers Sinn
004.SP1.139 To the last %1farthing%2. Therefore to my power
004.SP1.140 Toughlie, and stubbornelie I beare this Crosse: But the hower
004.SP1.141 Of mercie now was come; Hee tries to bring
004.SP1.142 Mee to paie a fine to scape his %1torturinge%2,
004.SP1.143 And saies S%5r%6, can yow spare mee? I said willinglie;
004.SP1.144 Naye S%5r%6, Can yow spare mee a %1Crowne%? Thankfullie I
004.SP1.145 Give[sic] it as a[sic] ransome: but as %1fidlers%2 still
004.SP1.146 Thoughe they bee payd to bee gone, yet needes will [CW:Thrust]
004.SP1.147 Thrust one more %1Iigge%2 vpon yo%5w%6: So did hee [f.(16v)]
004.SP1.148 With his long Complementall thankes, vexe mee.
004.SP1.149 But hee is gone, thankes to his needie want,
004.SP1.150 And the prerogative of my %1Crowne%2. Skant
004.SP1.151 His thankes were ended, when I, w%5ch%6 did see
