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.

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.
London Printed for E.B.
