Exerpt from 'Mundus Muliebris' , 1690

Whoever has a mind to abundance of Trouble,

Let him furnifh himfelf with a Ship and a Woman,

For no two things will find you more Employment,

If once you begin to Rig them out with all their Stremers.

Nor are they ever fufficiently adorned,

Or fatisfy'd, that you have done enough to fet them forth.
