For it is the property of all you that are widows (a handful ex-
cepted) to hate tnose that honestly and carefully love you, to the
maintenance of credit, state, and posterity ; ana strongly to dote
on those that only love you to undo you. Who regard you least

beats most, whom Qod hates most, and all societies esteem least,
that man is sure to be a husband. Such is the peevish moon
that rules your bloods. An impudent fellow best wooes you, a
flattering Up best wins you ; or m a mirth, who talks roughli^
is most sweetest : nor can you distinguish truth from forgerieeL

you have entertained for bridegrooms.
