And deadly dints of wars
Our gracious Soueraigne Lord King lames

To the tune of who list to lead a Soldiers life.
7    SIxe Articles of consequence, betweene them is agreed:
With oathes confirm'd betweene each Prince,
to be performed indeed. The which conditions of the peace,
in order follow heere: Whereby the cause of all those broyles,
to all men may appeare.
8   First that the King of Sweden should,
The City Caiman yeald: Into the King of Denmarkes hands,
(e're further blood be spil'd.) With all the profits of the same:
If he the same would hold Or else to his commodity,
The Citty must be sold.
9   That Elsbach, Otland, two great townes,
and Mensborch, with the land: And Forces must be all deliuer'd,
to mighty Denmarks hand. For twelue yeares space he must inioy,
Those Castles Townes and Forts, And now in rest these Princes great,
do florish in their Courts.
