THE TRAGEDY OF DOCTOR LAMB
9 The fourteenth day of Iune Which was vpon a Friday, In the afternoone, We may count it a high day, for what was done.
10   This man vpon that day, As it is knowne for certaine, Went to see a play
At the house cald Fortune: and going away,
11    A crew of Sea-men bold, That went to see the action, Followed the Doctor old, And rose vnto a faction,
as 'tis tolde.
12   Ouer the fields went he, And after him they follow'd, His Deuill could not free
Him, for they whoop'd and holowd, till they see.
13   T Tim enter in a house,
ll The Horshoe neere to More-gate, Where he did carouse, But they to him still bore hate, the story shewes.
14   Assone as he had supt,
Which was with halfe a pig there,1 This multitude abrupt, Said were a Deuill as big there, they'd interrupt.
