NEWS GOOD AND NEW
7   Row. No Ostler there will rob you,
of either oates or hay: No Tapster nickes the pot there,
but fils it as he may: No hoast will there be drunke,
no hostesse proues vntrue. Iohn. I neuer will beleeue it,
Tis too good to be true.
8   Row. Your Brokers there are honest
and are not ranckt with knaues, They lend their coine for conscience,
which makes them ore their graues To haue their good deeds writ,
whose number is but few. Iohn. I neuer will beleeue it,
Tis too good to be true.
9   Row. A Sergeant late turn'd honest,
■*■ and not abus'd his place: A Baily became pitifull,
and wail'd his prisoners case: And both to goodnesse fram'd
their former course anew. Iohn. I neuer will beleeue this,
Tis too good to be true.
io Row. The Landlords there are pitiful
and racke not poore mens rents, The tenant there is dutifull,
and payes what he indents. The rich the poore doe loue:
of these there are but few. Iohn. I neuer will beleeue this,
Tis too good to be true.
