9 By Merchants rich is giuen much,
to Bankrupts newly decay'd, The Merchants store, shall help the poore,
that want, to set vp their Trade; From Lud-gate stones none shal heare mones
which haue so long beene made; The Usurers, hue
in the hundred will take, Promoters1 all shall Soldiers make, And Whores are turnd honest,
for conscience sake.
10 More mightst thou say my fine-tongu'd Boy,
of this our happy Newes, If any grieue for to beleeue,

these obiects come and peruse; Where you shall find honestly
all that I say, Prouide, make hast, vse no delay: For all this shall be
betwixt this and Doomes-day.
