PEACE BETWEEN DENMARK AND SWEDEN
I o Besides the King of Sweden must,
to end the mighty quarrels: Unto the King of Denmarke pay,
of gold full fifteene barrells. For charges of the foresaid warres,
and that their shippes at seas, May passe through one anothers bounds,
and no man them displease.
II   That Layland euer shall be free,
without all contribution: That Greeneland is the Danish Kings,
and giue no restitution. That Denmarks King without all let,
foure golden Crownes may beare, Which was the great and greatest cause,
he first these warres did reare.
12 Besides some things of smaller note,
betwixt them is decreed: And so those mighty Christian Kings,
like brothers are agreed. Thus after many bloody fights,
and many people slaine: The deadly stroake of dangerous armes,
brings blessed peace againe.
Those which are desirous to see this matter more at large: 1 referre to the booke newly come forth according to the Dutch Coppie.
Printed for Henry Gosson, and are to be sold at his shop on London Bridge. 1613.
