Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: ... Parson, delicate Parson, How did you like the Game. In this you have not acted well, alas, you are much to blame: That such a man should kiss and tell, O that is a burning shame; If you had been wise, you had let her alone, And then your grand folly had never been knonin, But now far and near it is scatter'd and blown O Parson, delicate Parson, Never do so no more. YOUNG CORYDON 1700 A Broadside Song with music; set by Jerem1ah Clarke.

Thus Love his Revels keeping, 'Till Nature at a stand; From Talk they fell to sleeping, Holding each other's Hand.
