THE PEDLAR OPENING HIS PACK
16    O likes of any hew,
O and Spanish needles plenty: Thred both white and blew,
like me not one 'mongst twenty, can fit you.
17   Balles of Camphyre made,
to keepe your face from pimples: An Unguent that's alayd,
you neuer shall haue wrinckles, if a Mayde.
18    Spunges for your face,
or Sope that came from Turkey: Your fauour it will grace, if that you be not durty, in no place.
19   Rich imbroydered Gloues,
to draw vpon your white hand: Or to giue your Loues, a Ruffe or falling band, my pretty Doues.
20   Scarfes that came from Cales,
or points and Laces lacke you: Inckle made in Wales,
I finely can beknacke you: tell no tales.
21    Bone lace who will buy,
that came from Flaunders lately: Pray doe not thinke I lye,
but I will serue you straightly, by and by.
