A NEW-YEAR'S GIFT FOR THE POPE
6 Thus stil the pure Gospell gainst falshood preuailes,
which when the proud Prelate did see, A Cart-load of Trinkets he puts in the Scales,
and thrust it as full as might be, With great wooden Crosses and many great babies, The Pictures and Saints of a bevy1 of Ladies, Who dayly are worshipped by these grand Rabbies:
Tet still father Pope you cannot^ &c.
Yet still father Pope [&c]
1 Text bemy. Perhaps the line should read With Pictures of Saints and a bevy of Ladies.
