Not illustrated. 1848 edition. Excerpt: ...the, Thou woldest in this case be ruled by me. S. To folowe the contrarye I can not be turned; My harte theron is styflly fixed. F. What, I saye, about thine owne distruction? S. No, no, but about myne own salvation: For if I be helped, I swere by the masse, It is onely maryage that brynges it to passe. Delay. 'r Oul of hande, at once. It is not the schole, it is not the booke, It is not science or occupacion; It is not to be a barbour or cooke, Wherein is now set my consolacion; And synce it is thus, be, father, content, For to marye a wyfe I am full bent. F. Well, if thou wylt not, my sonne, be ruled, But nedes wyll folowe thyne owne foolysshenes, Take hede, hereafter, if thou be troubled, At me thou never seeke redresse; For I am certeyn thou canst not abyde Any payne at all, gryefe, or vexation, Thy chyldhood with me so easely dyd slyde, Full of all pastyme and delectacyon; And if thou woldest folowe the booke and learnynge, And with thyselfe, also, take a wyse waye, Then thou mayst get a gentleman's lyvynge, And with many other beare a great swaye: Besydes this, I wolde in time to come After my power, and small habylytie, Helpe the and further the, as my wysdome Shulde me most counsell for thy commodytie.

I perceyve, therfore, I have done to well, And shewed overmuch favoure to the, That now agaynst me thou doest rebell, And for thyne owne furtheraunce wylt not agree. Wherfore of my goodes thou gettest not a peny, Nor any more
