WHETHER IT IS BEST TO MARRY
OR NOT.

And it is one shall please they mind.

For thee that man I do prepare.

Or say I can no fortune tell.
Pray lose no time, for if you do

If this match slip, you long may slay,
Then take kind James without delay.
Cupid commands thee now to do’t,
Then prythe make no more dispute.
