It was the King's command,                                 am
On the morrow after She should out of hand
To the scaffold go: Her husband was                                                 21s
To bear the sword before her; He must eke, alas J
Give the deadly blow. He refus'd the deed; She bid him to proceed,                                    210
With a thousand kisses sweet. In this wofull case They did both imbrace,
Which mov'd the ruffians in that place Straight for to discover                                   a*

Whereby the lady saved was. The harlot then was hanged, As she well deserved :
This did vertue bring to passe.                  220
