EOBIN HOOD AND THE TINKER. 237
But Robin hee then wish'd them both
They should the quarrel cease,                     
" That henceforth wee may bee as one, And ever live in peace.
" And for the jovial tinkers part,
A hundred pounds He give In th' year to maintain him on,                         its
As long as he doth live.
" In manhood he is a mettled man,
And a mettle-man by trade ; Never thought I that any man
Should have made mee so afraid.                 im
" And if hee will bee one of us,
We will take all one fare ; And whatsoever wee do get,
He shall have his full share."
So the tinker was content                                   km
With them to go along, And with them a part to take :
And so I end my song.
