NEWS FROM THE TOWER HILL
18   Her Husband came with her,
and he did passe his word, At a certaine day the shot to pay which they that night had scor'd.
19   And so they were dismist,
well serued I protest: If all base whores might pay such scores then men might passe in rest.
20   The youngman I commend,
and wish that others would
Him imitate, then Peg and Kate
would be no more so bold.
21    It is a great abuse,
in London at this day, Now in the street many nightly meet such wenches on the way.
22   Which causeth many a Man,
that would goe home in quiet, Upon such queans to spend his meanes, in filthinesse and ryot.
